The Big Monthly Bill You Rarely Think About

How much does your family pay in rental fees for the water heater in the basement?

And how long have you paid/will you pay for that rental?

Chances are you’ll pay that fee for a long time. In many cases, families still pay that rental fee years after the full value of the water heater has been paid. That’s hundreds or, in most cases, thousands of dollars more than the value of the actual unit. And there’s no end in sight.

new water heater oakvilleBuying your water heater is, for most families, a significantly more affordable alternative to renting.

Especially when you consider this:

  • Hot water is your second largest home comfort expense, after heating/cooling.
  • It accounts for 30% of an average home owner’s monthly bills.
  • The water heater you rent is probably out of date, inefficient and poorly (or not-at-all) maintained.

It costs more to run every day than a new, purchased water heater does.

So your rental fees are endless, expensive and your rental unit costs more to heat and maintain hot water for your family than a modern one.

Ending your rental contract will save your family money.

More information is good! It helps us put together an accurate quote so you know exactly what your new water heater will cost, and how much you’ll save.

New Water HeaterLet us know:

  • The type of water heater currently installed in your home - conventional, power vent, direct vent, power direct vent, condensing, electric or tankless.
  • The tank size.
  • The age of the tank (a guess is fine).
  • The number of bathrooms and people in your home.
  • Your water tank or tankless fuel - gas, propane or electric.
  • The number of people living in your home.
  • The volume of laundry you do in a week (a guess is fine again).
  • How often you run the dish washer (lastly, again, a guess!).

You always get a better water heater by purchasing, and buying doesn’t lock you into endless payments.

We don’t want to pressure you into anything. We just want to make you aware of your options.

End those perpetual payments

When you purchase your water heater, you never pay more money than the tank is worth. When you rent, it’s standard practice. The rental company will repair that tank forever, until the tank is full of sediment and can’t heat water any more.

Your rental payment goes on forever. You make very few commitments so serious in your life. Should your water heater rental really be one of the longest contracts you get into?

We can probably save your family money.

Call us for a quote on your new water heater and compare that to the rental fees you’ve paid and continue to pay long into the future.
