We have received a number of calls from past Enwise customers who have purchased a tankless water heater, a furnace, an air conditioner, or some other piece of mechanical equipment. They always ask about their Enwise warranty and what The companies bankruptcy means for them. The answer is easy but it is important to everyone.
Many HVAC companies offer extend warranties on top of the equipment manufactures specifications. These extend warranties (like the Enwise warranty) can be set up in a few different ways, but most are done though the actual HVAC company. This can be risky as you rely on the company to provide coverage if an issue arises, but there is no guarantee the company will be around in 10 years. This is exactly what happened in the case of Enwise warranty, the extended warranty that some customers purchased was effectively erased the moment they went bankrupt.
But… Every customer still maintains their system warranty from the manufacturer, which in most cases is really quite good. You are not bound to any one company and as long as they are a recognized dealer of a certain brand all warranty work can be done by any company, it’s you, the home owner’s choice. Thus, if you are a past Enwise customer all of your equipment is still covered under the manufactures warranty, you just need to choose another company to perform the scheduled maintenance and warranty work should the need arise.
The one catch is maintenance; you need to make sure that maintenance on your furnace, tankless, air conditioner or other system is done according to the systems manual. If you forgo any maintenance and you experience some type of system failure your warranty is null and void. So follow your scheduled maintenance and know that what happened to the extended Enwise warranty customers very well could happen to you. It’s better safe than sorry.
We can perform maintenance on all pieces of equipment and systems.

Installing a tankless water heater can be a difficult job as such each customer we service receives a custom tankless installation. There are a number of factors that ensure no two jobs are alike and thus each installation is unique.
There are a number of reasons people are upgrading to tankless systems, but it’s important to understand that a tankless might not be right for every situation. Here are a few reasons people are choosing to upgrade.
High efficiency – some tankless units are 98% efficient – that’s future proof.
Unlimited hot water – Jacuzzi’s and body showers take a lot of water that can empty a conventional tank quickly.
Extended Lifespan – a tankless has an expected lifespan of over 20 years.
Space Savings – As homes and condos continue to shrink floor space becomes a premium a tankless mounts to the wall.
Energy savings – 98% means that 98 cents of every dollar you spend is actually used.
Within Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area we are in a rental market for water heaters which is very unfortunate. These systems really aren’t that expensive and when leasing you easily pay for the system 3-5 times over. Some companies within the Greater Toronto Area are offering financing of a tankless but again the fine print is where they get you. We see more home owners regretting their decision and paying between 13% to 18% interest for their tankless. We often recommend that homeowner simply use their line of credit if they are looking to finance a tankless system. The interest rate is much more reasonable and will likely save the homeowner a few hundred bucks or more.
If you’re looking for that custom tankless installation throughout the Greater Toronto Area give us a call and we can have a REP come out to your home, free of charge. The REP will be able to assess your home, gas lines, venting requirements and give you a quote right there on the spot.
