Why does everyone rent water heaters in Ontario?

    No other province rents hot water tanks so why does everyone here in Ontario?

    It is a strange province we live in. No one rents their furnace, air conditioner, fridge, stove, washer or dryer. So why do we rent water heaters?

    Ontario is in a transitional phase right now as old tank type water heaters are being replaced with the new, technologically enhanced, tankless water heaters. A tankless is well over 90% efficient and heats water on demand, significantly reducing your energy consumption (and energy bills).

    With this new transition it’s time for Ontario residents to start owning verses renting their water heater…. here’s why now is the right time to start owning.

    1. A tankless has a much longer lifespan than a regular tank, so you save money.
    2. Tankless systems typically cost more so the rental fees can be more than double
    3. Rental water heater companies don’t care about efficiency, why would they? You’re the one paying the bill.
    4. The Government is offering free rebates to offset some of the additional costs of a tankless.
    5. It will cost you significantly less to own than to it will to continue renting a water heater.
