Having hot water in your Columbia area home precisely when you want it these days is no longer considered a luxury.
A steady supply of hot water always adds an extra level of comfort to your Maryland home, but we see it as one of our daily necessities. And if something disrupts this necessity, as in losing the hot water or running out, everything comes to a stand still in our daily routine.
If you have a faulty water heater, give us a call so we can determine the issue and address it right away. At Greenfox Cooling, Heating & Plumbing, we offer several options to keep the hot water flowing in your home. We are happy to install, replace, repair and maintain your water heater for you.
Water Heater Repair Warning Signs
Newer water heaters tend to take up less space, use less energy and are more efficient. Still, nobody wants to replace a Columbia household appliance unless necessary.
You can count on our water heater repair specialists to explain what you should know about your system and whether or not your issue is easily fixable.
Here are three clear signs it could be time for a repair:
- Your heater is making unusual noises. As sediment heats and reheats, it can harden, creating a rattling sound in your heater.
- You have rusty water. This could either be an indication of rusting pipes or rust forming inside your tank. Either way, an inspection is merited.
- There is water around your heater, indicating a possible leak. Our Greenfox Cooling, Heating & Plumbing team can fix this in no time.
Most water heaters have a service life of about eight to 12 years. When your water heater hits the 10-year mark, you may want to consider swapping it out for a newer model.
Traditional Water Heaters
If you prefer the tradition of a tank water heater system, we have a wide selection. Standard water heaters are much more energy efficient than they used to be, and tankless water heaters are not ideal for every Maryland home. These traditional water heaters do have lower installation costs than tankless heaters, so this may suit your immediate budget.
Our Greenfox Cooling, Heating & Plumbing plumbing professionals are ready to install your new water heater tank using your current plumbing and energy arrangement, saving you both money and time. If you prefer using these tanks, we can typically install your new tank without any energy-supply alterations. We will simply connect it to your current setup.
Tankless Water Heaters
More and more Columbia homeowners are installing tankless water heaters. If you aren’t well versed on these on-demand hot water sources, you may be missing out.
A tankless or on-demand water heater produces heated water instantly to give you hot water precisely when you want it. There’s no waiting for it to heat up, as can sometimes happen with a traditional water heater.
The traditional tank heats and stores the water in its tank, repeatedly tapping into its energy source to reheat the supply. With no need to store water, tankless water heaters are very compact and can be installed in an area with limited space.
With a tankless heater, the water passes over a heating element, heated by natural gas or propane, and the element heats the water as it’s traveling to you. Gone are the days of using all your hot water while in the shower.
Tankless heaters also are highly energy efficient. They only use the energy they need at the time they need it, conserving your energy and keeping your bill low. Tankless additionally offers installation options with both indoor and outdoor models. These water heaters have something for everyone.

Water Heater Repair
If you ever detect a problem with your water heater, or if you have no hot water, call us right away to diagnose the issue and repair it. While preventative maintenance can ward off a lot of problems, unexpected repairs do sometimes occur.
When that happens, know you have a trusted professional in Greenfox Cooling, Heating & Plumbing. We promise never to replace a part unless necessary or if we can demonstrate significant cost savings.
Our team offers 24/7 emergency repair services to be there when you need us.
Water Heater Maintenance
Regular preventative maintenance on your water heater is a necessity, like any other heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system in your Maryland home. Mineral deposits can build up in the tank or pipes, causing unexpected and costly repairs as well as a shorter life for your system.
When it comes to maintaining your water heater, our professionals can inspect the piping and the valves, drain the tank and wash out sediment, adjust the temperature and check the anode rod.
We understand how plumbing and HVAC equipment are some of the larger purchases for your Columbia home—we want to be sure you get the most value from your investment.
