Noisy faucet - Air gushing noise

I have one faucet in the bathrooms (on the second floor) which makes a noise of compressed air rushing out when opened early morning for the first time. This started happening recently and I am concerned that it may be a symtom of something bad happening in the pipes.

The house is relatively new - 6 years old.

Please let me know why this happens and how to fix it.

Thanx

I don't believe it is something "bad" happening. I think there is air getting into your water system somewhere and going to the highest fixture, this sink. It could be a bad seal in a faucet or the washing machine hose. Perhaps even an outside faucet. You can try isolating the faucets one at a time. Turn one off each night at the supply valve. See if the air is in this sink in the morning. To speed the process up, you could turn off the water supplys in a whole room and see what happens. No damage will result in your situation, just irritation. Good luck.
