Save Money By Renting A Water Heater

  • Installation Fees: Only licensed and experienced HVAC technicians or should install your hot water heater.
  • Diagnostic Fees: When something goes wrong with your water heater there are initial charges just to have someone come to your home to take a look and find out what’s wrong.
  • Labour Costs: In addition to the diagnostic fees to find the problem with your water heater, now a technician has to spend time fixing the problem.
  • The Cost of Parts: On top of finding and fixing the problem you’ll also be billed for the necessary replacement parts.

Overall, when something goes wrong the charges can build up quite quickly. Breakdowns aren’t something that can be anticipated either, which means they can happen at times where you don’t have the money to spend on repairs, parts and labour.

The cost of purchasing water heaters in comparison to renting one can be summed up in two ways. First, there’s the initial cost of the tank itself if you as a consumer decide to buy one and there’s the cumulative cost of renting one. Second there’s the maintenance and replacement costs that can accumulate over the lifespan of water heaters, which is typically about 10 years.

Water Heaters: Baseline Costs

The initial cost of buying a water heater from a big box store like Canadian Tire or Lowe’s or any other place that sells them can range between $400 and $700 depending on the size, make, and model you require. On average renting water heaters from a company like Novel Care is $39.99 per month. The baseline cost of purchasing a water heater that will typically last for about 10 years is $700 on the high-end and to rent for that same amount of time is about $4800. That might seem like a significant difference, but that’s where consumers need to consider the second set of costs associated with renting versus purchasing water heaters.

Water Heaters: Maintenance & Replacement Costs

Let’s face it, 10 years is a long time to own anything without it needing some type of repair. You change the oil in your car, you replace and rotate the tires, and from time to time you have to accept that it will breakdown and need some type of repair. The same is true for your home. Every now and then you’ll need to replace a few shingles or the entire roof, you’ll need to repair the rotting wood on your back porch or repaint specific rooms as the paint fades or goes out of style. Essentially, everything needs maintenance and repairs over time and water heaters are no different.

Now that you’ve purchased a water heater on your own for $700 you still need to have it installed and the old one removed and disposed of, which are additional costs. Let’s say installation and disposal is about $500, now you’re up to $1200 just to get your new water heater installed. Over time there will be multiple service calls and maintenance needs and probably a replacement or two. Replacements alone will be another $1200 each because you’ll have to purchase a new unit, have the old one disposed of and have the new one installed. If that happens once over 10 years now, you’re up to $2400, and with multiple maintenance and repair visits over time you’re likely up to at least $4000 – $5000. Now you’ve eclipsed the cost of paying a small monthly fee to ensure your water heater is running safely and efficiently.

Overall, for a small monthly fee you have peace of mind knowing that if your water heater breaks down, needs maintenance or repairs, or even a complete replacement you don’t have to pay anything at all. There’s no cost for a repair person, no cost for a new water heater, and no cost for disposal. Owning your own water heater means you don’t have a small monthly fee, but every now and then you’ll be hit with large expenses that you might not be ready for financially.

Renting water heaters versus owning them is a smarter choice financially and in terms of convenience and peace of mind. When you work with a reputable and experienced company like Novel Care, you’re assured that you’ll be getting great service from experienced professionals.

If you rent a water heater then you’ve never experienced the financial stress of having to deal with a burst water heater that’s not only damaged everything within striking distance, but also needs replacing. A burst water heater is of course at the end of the spectrum in terms of the worst thing that can happen to a water heater, but it’s something to consider when you’re deciding whether to buy or rent a water heater.

To Buy or Rent a Water Heater

It always feels good to outright own something rather than renting it, but that hold more true for things like cars, trucks, homes, condos and other big items that better reflect who you are and are a big part of your lifestyle. While you rely on your water heater every single day to provide you with warm water for washing fruit, showering, washing your hands, and a variety of other things a water heater isn’t something to be proud of and show off to your friends and family. This might be the simplest reason that buying a water heater doesn’t make sense, but it’s important to understand all aspect of the situation prior to making a decision.

When you own your water heater there are a number of things that can go wrong with it as time passes and if you’re the owner you’re responsible for finding a technician and getting it fixed. When you rent a water heater from a reputable and professional company like Novel Care the only call you have to make in the event of a problem is Novel Care. It’s that simple.

When you own a water heater and it breaks down due to an irreparable issue then you’re on the hook to pay for a replacement one. When you rent a water heater from Novel Care and it breaks down with an irreparable problem Novel Care will replace it under your contract with them. If you car breaks down and can’t be repaired you’re responsible for replacing it because you own it and since renting a car long-term doesn’t make financial sense owning or at the very least leasing a car is the best financial choice. By comparison renting a water heater is a really great deal! What other industry or company will provide you with such an expensive piece of equipment for such a low monthly fee and take all the responsibility when something goes wrong with it?

Overall, it makes much more sense to rent a water heater instead of buying it. Not only do you get peace of mind, but you won’t be breaking the bank if something goes wrong.
