"Jeff & I wanted to personally thank you for the way you took care of our recent problem with our Trane air conditioner. We were so thrilled with the efficiency in which you handled the problem with the compressor and for replacing this under warranty. We just wanted to let you know that we appreciate this so much. We didn't want this to go unnoticed. We also wanted to thank you for the wonderful employees that work at Hetter Heating & Air Conditioning. James has been out many times to our house and is always very pleasant, knowledgeable, efficient, friendly and prompt. Again, thank you for prioritizing customer service and valuing us as loyal customers. We will continue to sing your praises and refer as many clients to you as possible. Hope this letter finds you and your family doing well and enjoying this summer."

"Hetter always sends quality people that are polite, knowledgeable, and quick. The only way I would look for another HVAC company would be if they went out of business."
Bob - Upper Arlington
"This past week a 3 man team from your company installed a new furnace and A/C at my home.
I was greatly impressed by their workmanship, courtesy and work ethic. They worked together as a smooth, united team.
Thanks for sending such a good team."

"Dear Hetter Heating,
This Saturday morning I woke up to a 58 degree house. I went downstairs to find my heater not working. I currently have a wife that is 9 months pregnant so having a comfortable house is VERY important. I went to the Trane website to see who could assist with my heating issue. I called the three companies…to help (which) were the first three listed on the site. Every single company told me they would take down my information and let a technician know there was a potential job. I thought this was a sufficient effort to get immediate service. Two hours later, with no phone calls from anyone, I called Hetter Heating. A representative named Mike took my call. He assured me that he could have someone to my house within two hours. This was exactly the kind of service I wanted and desperately needed. When the technician arrived (Jason) he was professional and efficient and most importantly he got the furnace working in less than 45 minutes. I hope this e-mail reaches your CEO. Your competition is failing and I will be a Hetter Heating customer for life."
Keith - Westerville
"My wife and I are very pleased with the new furnace, AC, water heater and humidifier. It was a great thing to watch a group of men work as a team. You don't see that very much any more. They answered all my questions and then some. The company as a whole should receive a commendation for its professionalism and workmanship. Thanks again. It is a pleasure to work with such a great company."

"Wanted to let you know the guys were here and did a great job installing the new heat pump. Yes it is as quiet as you indicated. The guys were very knowledgeable about what they were doing, explaining what they were going to do, and answered all of my questions. They showed me how to use the thermostat and brought warmth back into the house. I would say I was lucky and got your A team to do the install in the quiet cold March weather. Give the guys an attaboy from me and if you like it certainly can be posted on your bulletin board. These guys were aces all the way."
Bernard - Galloway
"Just wanted to take an opportunity to thank you and everyone else for the job that was done on the furnace & AC install. Every single person involved was extremely professional from the plumber you recommended to the installation guys that showed up. This has been by far our best customer service experience since moving to Ohio. Please thank everyone for us and keep up the great work and we'll certainly tell all our neighbors/co-workers what a great job you all did."
Jason - Columbus
"My wife and I wanted to take a minute to thank you for all your help in getting our air conditioner replaced & running. You and your staff were so polite and respectful, just overall a very professional group. We can't thank you enough for your promptness and efficiency in getting our situation taken care of. We will pass our praises to all our friends. Thanks again."
Jon & Jes - Columbus
"We are thrilled with the new heat pump ! We cannot believe how quiet it is compared to the old heat pump. As soon as we get some free time, we will write a letter so that you can share our positive experience with others. As for now, if any prospective clients ask for a referral, feel free to give them our phone number and we will be happy to tell them what a great pleasure it was working with you. Thanks again!"

"Hi Rick. I want to thank you again for taking the time to meet with Joe and I so quickly and especially for your professionalism and detailed information provided. As I mentioned in our meeting, in addition to checking Angie's List, your website is one of the reasons I called Hetter and the packet you gave us while you were here was very well put together also. The information provided on both the website and in your information packet were leaps above other companies. We also really appreciated your thoughtfulness in providing us with space heaters - they made a difference!
The installation went very smoothly and Matt and Walt were also very professional and pleasant. Additionally, they went above and beyond in removing old components of the hot tub equipment and I'd really like to send them a note. Can you please verify both of their last names? I appreciate it.
The system is working great - the only real problem we have is getting used to not hearing it! We couldn't be more pleased with the whole experience. We are very conscious of quality and presence and Hetter gave us the vibe and value we needed. Please pass along our thanks to John as well.
If there is anything further that you need from us, don't hesitate to call. Otherwise, thanks again and best regards. "

"I just wanted to let you know the great job Hetter Heating & Cooling did installing my new Trane furnace and air conditioner. Thank you for taking the time to vist me twice in my home and to answer all my questions prior to installation, including coming up with a solution for the hot water tank so that it was up to code. I also appreciate the thorough job that Matt and Walt did in actually installing the furnace and air conditioner. The fellows discovered some problems with the original ductwork and literally put in extra hours to correct the situation so that everything was up to code and the new furnace would work efficiently. They were neat and did a great job of cleanup afterwards. They were also mannerly, and I had no qualms about leaving my 80 years + mother in the house with them while they worked when I had to run some errands. Even my husband, who is a man of few words, was impressed with their work. As a homeowner, I only wish there were more companies out there like Hetter Heating & Cooling."

"I wanted to compliment EVERYONE at Hetter Heating. I am VERY impressed with the way the company conducts business.
Today's experience is a good example.... I called Hetter early this morning to request a service call due to not having hot water. I was cordially greeted by the woman answering the phone, was easily able to set an appointment for TODAY (!) and the service technician was at my house by around 11:00 a.m already!! AND I got a courtesy call prior to the technician's arrival -- as was promised.
The technician that came to the house today was Chuck (or Charles). He has been here previously and I appreciate the continuity of having the same service man come to the house -- especially one as great as Chuck is!! Chuck is always very professional and courteous. He's extremely patient with me as a homeowner who knows NOTHING about hot water heaters!! He listens well to my questions and takes time to answer them ALL. He appears to be very knowledgeable also -- he's able to easily answer my questions.
Today I was exceptionally impressed with Chuck because he picked up on a "subtlety" in wording on one of my previous service agreement visits, called into the office, spoke with his boss and came back into the house to inform me that there was no charge for the visit today!!!! WOW -- how many times is a customer going to hear THAT from a business??!! I was particularly touched because I felt Chuck was extremely perceptive to even pick up on the "possible issue" and he cared enough to follow through on it. He went the "extra mile" to offer me not only great service BUT honest service!
I cannot compliment Chuck and Hetter Heating enough!! I truly appreciate the wonderful service, your outstanding employees, and I especially appreciate the honesty with which you conduct business. Today's experience gives me great confidence in Hetter Heating -- I will definitely continue to use your services and will be recommending you to all my neighbors (or anyone else that needs any services you offer)!!"
Carol - Westerville
"Both Wally & Matt were terrific. They were very pleasant and respectful of our home. They seemed to take pride in not only doing the job, but making sure it was a good experience for us. It's just a basement, but they went the extra mile to make it a very professional looking job and actually made the connection with our water heater better and screwed in some clips on the pipe running to the sump pump so we wouldnt keep kicking it around ! Thanks again. Its nice when spending almost five grand is a pleasant experience !"
Starlett - Grove City
"Arragone & Joe just left my house after installing a new water heater. I am very pleased with both techs. They are very polite, neat & efficient. They are a credit to you & your company. Thanks for the quick response to my problem. I called at 8:10 this morning and I already have warm water."
Bert - Worthington
"Thanks again for sending a very capable technician to our home. James was thorough and found the problem and fixed it. It's been worth every penny working with your company the last year. Thanks again."

Expect your electric bill to go up this summer
AEP Ohio has been on a path the past several years to sell off its power plants and become a middle man distributor that delivers electricity to you. The plan - which is expected to be complete this summer - is to allow AEP Ohio customers to seek the lowest price in an open market from electric suppliers who compete against each other through periodic auctions. These auctions are overseen by the PUCO. How does that affect your bill? In the long run, the natural conclusion would be this is good for the consumer...and it hopefully will be. In the short run, however, your electric bill is still up. Why? Since AEP Ohio is now a distributor of electricity and not a supplier, off-peak discounts have been discontinued as has special rates for customers who use less kilowatt-hours than a specified...
Hot Water Tanks are now more expensive
On April 16, 2015 the new higher energy efficiency ratings on virtually all residential gas, electric & oil water heaters took effect as mandated by the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act (NAECA). For consumers this means a significant increase in price. We are seeing - in some cases - up to a 40% increase. Also, the size of the new tanks - especially the diameter - may be larger. Due to mandates, gas water heaters may require additional insulation and will be required to incorporate electronic ignition among other changes. In most cases, according to Bradford Whites website, the new products will differ only slightly in size and therefore will easily replace the majority of existing products. Homeowners whose hot water heaters currently fit in a tight space may be faced with an ex...
