HIALEAH, FLA- July 1, 2015 - Florida Home Solutions today announced new leasing services for the south Florida market. The company will offer homeowners in Brevard, Hialeah, Miami and Port St. Lucie the opportunity to lease natural gas appliances. Leasing appliances with Florida Home Solutions requires no down payment or up-front costs with standard installation, and any repairs needed during the leasing period will be covered at no cost. All work will be done by pre-qualified, licensed independent contractors.

Florida Home Solutions is the local brand name of Pivotal Home Solutions, a national leader in the home services marketplace. The company is expanding into Florida in response to consumer demand for the comfort and reliability of natural gas appliances.    

"For more than 20 years, we have been helping customers across the country take the hassle and stress out of caring for their home," said Robin Boren, president, Pivotal Home Solutions. "We are pleased to now offer affordable appliance leasing options to Florida homeowners so they too can enjoy the benefits of natural gas appliances and the worry-free convenience of a lease."  

Florida Home Solutions will lease water heaters, dryers and ranges, including tankless models, that use safe, reliable, clean-burning natural gas.

Most consumers don't pay attention to appliances like water heaters until it's too late. Below is information about water heaters that consumers need to know:

·    In Florida, consumers can save up to 37 percent annually using a natural gas vs. an electric water heater, and up to 51 percent annually using a natural gas vs. a propane water heater.*

·    The average life of a water heater is approximately 10 years. For some areas, depending on the composition of local water, it could be much shorter.

·    Current water heaters should be checked for signs of rust or mineral build-up. If any signs of corrosion are present, it may be a good idea to proactively replace the appliance.
