Beware door to door water heater sales
A warning to local residents who may find a representative with a company called Ontario Consumers Home Services at their door.
The company is facing 63 charges in Ottawa under the Consumer Protection Act over its practice of renting water heaters and furnaces door to door.
The complaints accuse the Toronto based company of leading customers to believe they were getting a house call from their existing service provider or that the company was taking over the account.
They are also accused of leading people to believe they were conducting government mandated inspections.
The province's Consumer Services Ministry is investigating complaints from other jurisdictions as well.
