If your water heater has recently gone out or you’re looking at expensive repairs, you might be wondering if renting a unit is a better option. The answer is yes, it is the better option for a short period of time. Renting a water heater means that your payments never end and you never own the unit. On the other hand, should you purchase a new one, you have to hand over a large sum of money and then worry about repairs and maintenance down the road. You also might consider the rent-to-own options, which can sometimes lead to dubious terms and confusing buy-out options.
None of these options sound ideal or pleasant. Luckily, there is another, better option! CLARITY by ClimateCare’s water heater subscription program is the smartest way to buy a water heater. This program allows you the best of both worlds: ownership of your water heater without forking over a load of money. Instead, you simply pay a low monthly installment and that installment covers any maintenance or repairs that might be needed. Unlike renting a water heater, this option means the payments will end and you won’t have to worry about penalties for paying the balance early.
