Question hot water spurts in faucet when first turned on

We have a 1 1/2 year old home. When we first turn on the hot water in the sink on the main level bathroom, it starts spurting for about 5 seconds, then it is fine, until it sits for awhile and then it does it again. It is like there is air in the line that needs to escape.

Please advise on what needs to be done to remedy this situation

If it's an electric, you may have a thermostat that's going bad, causing the heater to overheat the water. Do a Search above about how to replace tstats.
If it's air in the line, it should run out and be fine after a little use.
Good Luck!

Thanks for the info. The water heater is gas, not electric, so I guess it is just air in the lines, and should cease in time
