NOTE: Depending on the type of unit and venting requirements installation costs could be applicable. We're happy to send a qualified contractor to inspect water heater installation and suggest the right unit and the necessary installation/venting requirements. If you install a new conventional natural gas rental water heater where there is a chimney that is not being used to vent your furnace, you may be eligible for $220 towards a chimney liner. Call us at 519-741-2626 and press 0 for more details or to request an inspection.
