This comparison focuses on three of the top furnace rental companies.
These companies were chosen because they serve several provinces across Canada, including Ontario and Alberta.
In addition to these three companies, there are several more operating in various areas of the country, though many of those rely heavily on door-to-door sales. Companies whose primary source of customers comes from this type of unsolicited high-pressure sales frequently have a high number of consumer complaints, and may be the subject of investigations by the media or consumer protection agencies. For this reason, we’ve chosen not to cover them here.
Furnace-Rental.ca, Enercare, and Reliance Home Comfort all have offices in Toronto, Ontario, and typically operate offices and a network of technicians in cities across Canada to service a large number of Canadian households.
