This could be due to burner concerns, combustion leaks, or calcium deposits in the water heater
Every homeowner loves their HVAC equipment. I also doâ€¦ But my prefer extends to my powder room, where I take my hot day shower. I prefer taking a hot day shower before heading to work. It refreshes plus rejuvenates me. It also helps start my day in wonderful spirits, then one day I observed that my topwater oil furnace had a problem, plus it messed me up when I least expected. The topwater oil furnace had some leakage plus low pressure. To prevent the water leakage from getting worse, I had to call an HVAC professional to come plus check it out. I was cheerful when the HVAC professional came in less than an hour plus diagnosed the problem. He was kind enough to point out other complications that most of us experienced with topwater gas furnaces plus solve them. He sealed the water leakage plus restored pressure in my faucet. He pointed out that my faucets could emit foul smell occasionally, akin to rotten eggs, whenever I turned the water on. This was due to sacrificial rods corroding away, sited in hot water tanks to protect the tank from corrosion. He recommended me to change the anode rods when I notice the smell. Typically, these anode rods last between 4-5 years, after which they start smelling if not changed. Apart from the anode rods, a topwater oil furnace can also produce unusual sounds. This could be due to burner concerns, combustion leaks, or calcium deposits in the water heater. The HVAC professional’s advice was enlightening plus timely. Since then, I consistently knew what to do when each of the signs of weakness appeared on my top water heater.
