Answer

Some nosies made by a water heater are normal while others can be a sign of an issue. If a person hears hissing or popping coming from the water heater it can be that there is a build up of mineral deposits within the water heater. Another noise can be a tapping or buzzing sound and that could be caused by the heat traps on the water heater the stops the heat from escaping and being lost, that would be a sound that is considered normal.
