Littleton, Co, like any other city in Colorado, has homes and businesses that use and need water that is heated by a water heater. Water heaters come in several types: Conventional gas or electric, or tankless. As the water heater is used daily, home and business owners can expect some amount of repair. If repair is discovered as an unviable option, Plunge Plus will help you determine the best replacement. Water heater repairs by Plunge Plus are honest, cost-efficient, and dependable. Our plumbers have been trusted by many Littleton residents and commercial businesses to provide exemplary water heater repair and even replacement when necessary.
The sure signs that your water heater needs 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 malfunctions are commonly caused by sediment buildup, particularly as water heaters age. Minerals, including limescale, calcium, and magnesium, tend to accumulate on the sides of the tank and the burner over time. Inefficient filtration will allow these minerals to form a sediment barrier on the burner, which will seriously hamper the performance. Sediment prevention is best avoided by inspection or proper water filtration. When Plunge Plus conducts an inspection for sediment buildup, we naturally include a burner check, which home and business owners should do themselves also. 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!
