Forced into water heater rental contract with shady company - any way out?
I'm in the process of firming a purchase agreement for a new house, and I noticed the builder has "partnered with", aka bribed by, an absolutely terrible water heater rental company "Cricket Comfort" (1/5 stars on Google, 100+ reviews). Not sure why as the bribe would've been less than pocket change for a multi-billion dollar builder. Do these contracts usually have a time frame, e.g. I'm trapped for 1 year? I'd like to switch to a reputable company like Enercare at the earliest opportunity since there are hundreds of nightmare stories with this shady company.
