We think a lot about water heaters so you don’t have to

Water Heater Rental

Renting a water heater is a smart choice. Avoid the stress and cost of a breakdown, and just enjoy hot water when you want it.


You rely on your water heater every day. It’s one of the most used pieces of equipment in your home that you probably never think about. We don’t think you should either.

Your home's hot water should be worry-free. That's why we offer high-quality, energy-efficiency water heaters designed to do one thing: work so well you don't have to think about them.

If you’re considering upgrading your water heater here are some things you need to know. When deciding to rent or buy your water heater, there's more than just the purchase price to consider. Have you considered the additional costs of buying a water heater? How do you value your time and peace of mind?

Your Savings

When renting your water heater you won’t need to worry about additional costs. These costs can add up quickly, including:

  • Installation fees – a licensed technician is required to install your new tank.
  • Diagnostic charges – what happens when something goes wrong? How much will you pay just to get someone to your home? How soon can they arrive?
  • Parts and labour costs – are you prepared to pay hundreds of dollars in parts and labour costs when a breakdown happens?

Breakdowns always happen when you least expect it and can be very expensive. The chart below provides a quick overview of just some of the costs associated with typical repairs.
