Why Choose A Water Heater Rental

Should You Buy? Or Is Water Heater Rental Right For Your Living Situation?

Rent vs Buy. The age-old dilemma. As with most things in life, there are pros and cons to each. When it comes to water heaters, there are several reasons that you might want to consider renting over buying.

  1. You’re in a Short Term Living Arrangement. If you’re moving into a new home or commercial property and don’t expect to be there for more than 8-9 years, you’ll want to consider renting instead of buying a water heater. Estimations show that with original purchasing fees, plus installation and regular maintenance, buying only becomes profitable around the 10-year mark. Not to mention water heaters are only expected to last 14 years with regular maintenance.
  2. You’re a landlord with several properties to take care of. If you manage several units, renting water heaters rather than buying has the potential to save you thousands of dollars, and hours of time. The more water heaters you have, the more chance for maintenance issues to arise. Repairs can cost anywhere from $100-$1,300 depending on the severity of the problem. It could only take a few problems between your properties to equal what you would be paying in YEARS of monthly payments for a rental. With Midwest Water Heater water heater rentals, all repairs and maintenance are 100% free, and available 24/7. As a rental property manager, you allocate work, that’s what water heater rental companies like Midwest Water Heater are here for. 
  3. You Want Less Hassle. As with most things in life, renting is painless compared to buying. And when you combine the proper research, installation, and maintenance required to make sure your water heater doesn’t need repairs or replacements in the next 10 years, it adds up to a lot of hoopla that you might not have the time or energy for. With rentals all the hard work is taken care of, and so is your peace of mind, isn’t that worth something?
