Samuel On, of Toronto, was documented during an inspection of his new townhouse in March 2017, but was told by the owner that he had to sign leases to Enercare to accept the occupation. Enercare adds: „An owner is not obliged to rent his equipment and can buy it directly from the owner or negotiate with the owner. On , Enercare had leases for its hot water tank, aerospace and air conditioning, was declared at $5,000 for each unit if it were to buy it directly. „I did the math. He just didn`t add up,“ he says. I bought in the sellers market and I was lucky enough to find something I could really afford. There were two other interested buyers, and the owner was ready to leave the table when I inquired about renting hot water tanks. Earlier in the day, the Competition Bureau announced that it had terminated its investigation into Enercare Inc.`s water heating leases and return practices. The Bureau issued an opinion summarizing this investigation and the reasons for its classification.
Hausbauer is installing hot water tanks at a company (a filth pos of a business, in this case) I`m not against the idea of renting my hot water tank, just concerned about business with Enercare, and relying on them for emergency response and maintenance (I don`t trust them) Based on the results of his investigation , the office considered that the relevant geographic markets were local in Ontario areas that are exclusively supplied with gas by Enbridge Gas Inc. (the „Enbridge Gas Territory“) and may be aggregated into Enbridge`s gas territory for analysis because of their similar market structures. With respect to the product market in question, the Agency has verified whether the market only includes gas-fired water heaters or is broader, so that it also includes gas-fired water heaters purchased through retail channels. To support its analysis, the Bureau gathered a great deal of information during this investigation, including competitors` views and consumer substitute evidence, taking into account the significant differences in living costs between rental water heaters and retail water heaters. Although the Bureau has reviewed the two definitions of the product market, it considers that the market for the products in question should ultimately be limited to gas-fired water heaters based on the information currently available.
