Water Heater Scams: Tips if you're a victim
(NC)—Aggressive and questionable door-to-door water heater sales tactics have become a growing problem throughout Ontario.
To protect against these door-to-door sales tactics, EnerCare Inc., a leading provider of energy efficient products and water heater rentals, suggests homeowners always ask for identification and never feel pressured into signing a contract on the spot.
Homeowners who have signed a water heater rental contract with a door-to-door salesperson should know that the Ontario Consumer Protection Act allows 10 days to cancel the contract, no questions asked. That deadline extends up to a full year for those who have been misled or deceived.
