The components of a Gas Water Heater

You now have a gas water heater. But what does a water heater do? It is important to understand the parts of your water heater in order to better manage your household appliances and lower your utility bills. You’ll also be better equipped to diagnose and fix any HVAC issues that may arise. We have compiled a list of components for your water heater to help you diagnose a problem. Call our technicians to arrange a water heater repair appointment if your exhaust flue is broken.

  • Gas Burner & Assembly
  • The gas burner (also known as the heat source) is located under the tank. It has a control module that can be reached from the side of the tank. The module functions as a thermostat, and you can adjust the temperature to light the pilot light. The controller module, which is a gas line that runs alongside the tank, comes with a shut off valve. This valve can be used to turn off the gas in an emergency.
  • Exhaust Flue
  • Other harmful gases can be produced during the combustion stage of your gas water heater. Your exhaust is what makes this possible. It helps to vent these harmful gases from your burner and push them outside your home. The exhaust flue can also act as a heat exchanger.
  • Drain Valve & Pressure Relief Valve
  • The safety components of the gas water heater are the pressure relief valves and drain valves. It is responsible for reducing excess pressure and temperature if either of these entities builds up in the tank.

Additional heat and pressure can be dangerous, causing your water heater tank burst or to explode. These valves are essential to your heating system because they prevent these events from ever happening.

The tank’s drain valve is located in the bottom and it is used to flush out sediments. It is important to drain the tank every now and again because sediment buildup can cause damage to your gas water heater. This is usually done during scheduled maintenance.

  • Tank, Dip Tube, & Discharge Pipe
  • The tank is the most important component of your gas water heater. The tank is the large cylindrical that stores water. The dip tube allows cold water to enter the tank. The dip tube runs from the top to the bottom of the tank. Water rises to the top when it is heated in the tank. The discharge pipe allows water to flow out of the tank, which distributes it throughout the house.

To turn off the water in an emergency, place a valve somewhere along the cold water line entering the tank.

How to fix them

Are you hearing strange sounds coming from your water heater? It could be a tickling sound, a rumbling or sizzling sound, or even tickling sounds. Your water heater’s various sounds could indicate that there are plumbing issues within your system.

Let’s take a look at what each sound means for your water heater, and how to fix it.

Rumbling Noise

Are you hearing a rumble from your water heater? This is most likely to happen as your tank temperature increases. This is when water expands and clashes with the sediments, creating a rumbling sound.

As more sediment builds up at the bottom, the fiction between them increases. This buildup could be a sign that the sound is getting louder.

To Fix This

These sediments must be flushed out of your drain. To get rid of any sludge, you can use vinegar or a deliming solution.

Ticking Noise

You do hear a ticking sound? The water pressure is usually the reason for this tickling sound. Water heaters use water outlet and inlet heat traps. The nipple increases the efficiency of the water heater because it connects the plumbing to the unit.

If you hear a ticking sound, it could be the heattrap. If this is the case, replace the heat trap with a nonheat trap. When it comes to your plumbing system, most minor noises are not serious. You can also hear a tickling sound indicating that your water heater straps are loose.

To Fix This

The first step is to find the source of the ticking sound. You may only need to tighten the loose straps that cause the ticking sound. If that doesn’t work, you might consider adding spacers to stop the pipes moving.

A couple of degrees lower water temperatures can be used to stop tickling noises. This will prevent the pipes from expanding too much and reduce the ticking sound. Are you still unsure of the cause of the ticking sound or are you unable to identify it? For help diagnosing and solving your plumbing problems, contact a professional HVAC technician.

Popping Noise

Popping noises, which are common in areas with hard water, can indicate limescale. This is caused by minerals such as calcium and magnesium that build up in your tank from water passing through. These minerals are essential for our health, so don’t panic.

If not properly managed, these minerals can cause damage to your water heater. These minerals will split and become limescale as the water heats within the tank. Steam bubbles can also form from loose sediment in your tank’s bottom. The sediment will burst as the water warms and cause a popping sound. To eliminate popping sounds, our team will repair or clean your water heater.

How to Fix

Flushing and drawing your tank will remove any minerals sediment. Is your tank equipped with a heating element To prevent further deposits, you can try descaling.

Squeeching Noise

Your water heater may be making a loud, screamy sound. This is usually caused by water trying to pass through tiny openings.

To Fix This

T&P relief valve: This safety valve relieves pressure and temperature from your system when they get too high. This is where you should turn off your water heater to find out the cause.

Inlet valve Is the inlet valve fully open? A slightly open inlet valve can cause water to stop flowing properly, making a loud screeching sound. Make sure the valve is fully open.

Lines and valves: Check your waterline for any flaws or kinks.

Sizzling Nois

A condensation problem is often the cause of sizzling sounds. As water warms, condensation forms and can leak onto the burner. The water will start to sizzle when it comes into contact with the burner.

To Fix This

Look around the water heater. Are there any signs of a leaky water heater? Is it necessary to turn off your water heater Contact your local plumber immediately if you think so.
