    I have 13 years old water heater. I thought that I am renting it from Enbridge. When I had an emergency situation I called Enbridge and was redirected to the Direct Energy. My water heater was leaking really bad , almost flooded my basement. Direct Energy sent a technitian who inspected my tank and said that it needs to be peplaced with a new one. The replacement is free and I just need to pay for some venting change 395.00$.
    My question is why do I have to pay for the new venting if the water heater is not even my , it is rental. I am a single mother and it will really reap up my pocket. I am looking for an advise.Please help me.

    You have other options. There are number of companies out there doing the same thing, upgrading hot water heaters and most of them will upgrade your venting free of charge. I had mine done not too long ago, we had a guy come to our door and explained it very thoroughly to us, it is all under Enbridge bill and everything was free of charge. Google companies such as National, Summitt, Reliance and there are few other small companies, but be sure to read terms and conditions for the term as some of them including Direct Energy lock you for a long term contract now. You dont have to pay for the new installation, one of those other companies will do it free of charge.

    Thanks guys this was helpful i actually thought that i also was renting from Enbridge but it turned out my 12 yrs old tank is also from Direct Energy, i called them but they said everything is ok with my tank and they would only replace it if it leaked or broke. After reading all these posts about tank leaks i just had mine done, this gived me peace of mind now 🙂

    When you are replacing your rental hot water heater they normally upgrade the piping free of charge. Call Direct Home Ontario, they replaced my hot water heater and venting free of charge and so far it works great.
