Thank you for this! I haven't moved in yet, so I haven't looked into it too much... I've read you can remove Enercare's water heater and install your own instead of paying their monthly rental fee or their buyout fee. A quick search on Home Depot will show you can save ~$1-2k buying a water heater through them https://www.enercare.ca/water-heatin...turn-equipment

I have the SFK 55 unit which isn't listed on the buyout but the rental price is similar to the RU160 which has a buyout of $3590.

I don't think it's quite that simple. There are many threads on here about getting out of your agreement and they all seem to indicate a fight is necessary. We do have it in our purchase agreement that we will assume the contract. Whether that's legally binding or not I'm not sure. All that to say that I wouldn't expect to just call Enercare up and request to have them remove the equipment for nothing.

I haven't received my first bill yet so I could try and get out of it. However, best case scenario is that I take the unit out myself, install the same unit in it's place and then just get a licensed gas fitter to sign off on my work then you're looking at roughly 4 years to pay off the unit vs renting. If you go the buyout via Enercare then you're looking at roughly 7.5 years before you break even.

I'm still on the fence.

I've heard it's a headache trying to deal with Enercare in this scenario. I'm not closing until December, so I have some time to figure it out. Thanks!

Default Noticed that you can exit via Chapman Mills now.

Anyone know the timeline of the Strandherd widening and the Chapman Mills intersection completion?

Temporary traffic lights are supposed to be installed at the intersection within the next few weeks. Permanent traffic lights will come when that section is widened. Not sure exactly when but the full Strandherd widening project is scheduled to run until 2023.
