My water heater is making a lot of noise when it is heating

Customer Question

My water heater is making a lot of noise when it is heating up the water, could this be cause by sediment in the tank?
JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?
Customer: A water heater has filters?
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Not sure
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Should a water heater be drained periodically to prevent sediment build up?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the HVAC Technician about your situation and then connect you two.
