How did you manage to terminate your rental contract with Reliance? Did you simply say you want to cancel or did you have to fight back and push?kolider wrote: ↑Jan 19th, 2016 2:10 pmI bought a new build in 2013, rental water heater from Reliance came with the house. I simply called Reliance and told them I was getting my own tankless. I was able to buy a new tankless from Home Depot and the installers obviously removed my rented tankless. The thing weighs 10 pounds so I just picked it up and drove it to the depot. If anything, I had something like a $40 account closure fee (I might not even had to pay that - I cant remember)
I ended up paying $1600.00 all-in for: inspection of current tankless setup, supply and install of the Rheem EcoSense tankles water heater, new aluminum/metal venting for the new tankless (this cost about $200 of the $1600) as the original tankless only needed a plastic venting.
Probably the best money I have spent for the house as the Reliance bill was about $43 taxes in per month to rent the water heater. I break-even at 37 months - which will occur this June.
I think people with Enercare are completely screwed as you can't get out of the contract at all without buying out the tank - at least with Reliance you can get out with a small fee.
I'm trying to cancel but they are saying that I am unable to terminate my contract as the minimum rental agreement before terminating is 84 months (7 years).
