Lakewood, Co, like any other city in Colorado, has homes and businesses need water heated by an operational water heater.  Water heaters are built in several ways: Conventional gas or electric, or tankless.  As the water heater is used daily, home and business owners can assume some amount of repair. If repair is revealed as an unfeasible option, Plunge Plus will help determine the optimal replacement. Water heater repairs by Plunge Plus are authentic, cost-efficient, and reliable. Our plumbers have been entrusted by many Lakewood residents and commercial businesses to provide excellent water heater repair and replacement when necessary.

The signs that your water heater is requiring repair are:

  • Not supplying acceptable hot water
  • Water heating time taking an extended about of time
  • Leak from the water heater tank
  • Noise from the water heater tank

Water heater failures are frequently caused by sediment buildup, principally as water heaters age. Minerals, including limescale, calcium, and magnesium accumulate on the sides of the tank and the burner over time.  Ineffective filtration allows the minerals to form a sediment barrier on the burner hampering performance.  Sediment prevention is best achieve by inspection or appropriate water filtration. When Plunge Plus conducts an inspection for sediment buildup, we include a burner evaluation, which home and business owners must complete themselves often. The burner flame should be blue with a yellow tip. A yellow-orange appearance is a sign of incomplete burning indicative of poor water heater performance and possibly the production of deadly carbon monoxide! Carbon monoxide is deadly and if it permeates your home or business, you could be at risk.  Call Plunge Plus immediately if your water heater is showing signs of improper function!
