There are thousands of water heater models on the market and of course you want to get the best possible price. So how can you know which products represent the best deal?
Promotional offers can be tempting, but it’s never wise to base your decision on price alone. Better to take the same approach as when buying a home or car, i.e., base your decision on your needs. Even if price is the main factor for you, always pay attention to the product features, because these may affect your level of satisfaction when your system is in normal use.
Our water heater specialists take the time to explain the differences between the different models available, to ensure you choose the one that best fits your lifestyle.
There are many factors that affect the price of a water heater:
Installation is not always included when you buy a water heater from a big-box store. Chauffe-eau SOS offers an installation service that is certified and guaranteed, and performed by experienced installers. Their skills are important: this is your assurance of no surprises, like water damage, later on in the product’s life.
Are you a family that’s thrifty in its water consumption, or perhaps a couple that uses a lot of water? Your usage will greatly influence the type of model you choose. So it’s important to be frank with your advisor about the amount of hot water you normally need for showers, dishwasher, laundry, etc.
Some models may look identical on the outside, but have very different technical features on the inside. For example, the type or number of heating elements, type of thermostat, etc. These all affect how the system performs, and you will need to be clear about what kind of performance you expect when narrowing down your choice.
The major water heater manufacturers offer different models to the retailers who sell their products. Some manufacturers will grant a retailer exclusivity on certain models, due to sales volume or the retailer’s specialty (e.g., commercial electric water heaters). If you see a product somewhere at a good price, but cannot find it anywhere else with the same model number, it’s probably being sold under a different code. Our advisors can help you on this.
