Lowe's does offer installation of tankless water heaters purchased at the store. Consumers can make their purchase online or at a local store and request installation services be added to the purchase.
As of 2015, consumers can purchase a tankless water heater from Lowe's and, as long as the purchase was made before noon, have it installed on the same day. Lowe's subcontracts the work to local professionals who have been screened and are licensed to provide installation.
After the purchase, the local subcontractor contacts the consumer to set up an installation time. Although the work is being completed by the independent professional, it is paid for and guaranteed through Lowe's, thus eliminating dealing with separate entities if there are problems.
