Replacing your water heater when you upgrade your heating system or before it leaks will save you time and money. 

Ask your heating dealer, plumber or retailer for a natural gas water heater that will qualify for a rebate and fit your household needs. Save now with a rebate and for years to come with lower energy bills.
