Hot Water Heater Rental
Find out about water heater lease options
Hot water heater rentals help you meet short-term needs or sidestep the hassles and responsibilities of appliance ownership. A water heater rental is an excellent way to achieve monthly cost control and relieve yourself of worry – if something goes wrong, the rental company will repair or replace the hot water heater free of charge. You won't have to spend a penny out of your pocket to fix it.
Types of Hot Water Heaters
Before you go out and shop for your water heater rental, you should be aware of the various types of water heaters available on the market. Some are better-suited to certain applications and building types than others, so carefully consider which would be best for your situation and keep your home energy consumption to a minimum.
Here is an overview of the available water heater lease options:
- Storage tank hot water heaters. This is the most common type found in North American homes. A storage tank water heater keeps hot water in a cylinder, and when its reserves get depleted, more cold water enters the system, is heated up, and is stored until needed.
- Tankless hot water heaters. Rather than preheating water, tankless hot water heaters only produce hot water on demand. Typically, they are installed near the point of use and offer excellent energy efficiency. One disadvantage, though, is that they generally cannot meet the hot water demands of an entire household.
- Integrated space water heaters. An integrated space system combines your home's heating system with your hot water heating system, using the same mechanisms to warm up your home and supply it with hot water.
- Solar-powered water heaters. These water heaters draw energy from the sun, which is converted to electricity and used to heat water and store it. Traditional alternatives include gas hot water heaters and electric hot water heaters.
As with washer dryer rentals or any other major appliance rental, you should always shop around. Compare not only monthly rental prices, but also lease terms and customer service standards before making your final decision. Remember that getting the best value for your money isn't always solely dependent on getting the lowest price.
