In recent years, the practice of renting HVAC equipment and water heaters has come under increasing scrutiny. From hidden fees to restrictive contracts, consumers across Ontario have been sharing their horror stories in the media. Here’s a glimpse into the negative attention these rentals have been receiving:

  1. High Costs and Hidden Fees: Many rental agreements come with exorbitant monthly fees that can quickly add up over time. Moreover, hidden charges for installation, maintenance, repairs, or early termination can catch renters off guard, leading to financial strain.
