"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."

"I just wanted to give you some feedback about the installation of my new system, which occurred on August 17, 2012. There were several aspects to the installation that were impressive and what I consider to be above and beyond the call of duty: 1) First of all, the crew showed up on schedule and introduced themselves to me with a handshake. They were friendly and professional. I believe their names were Adam and Walt. 2) They explained what to expect during the day and answered all my questions. As I mentioned to you on the phone, they went well beyond what I would have expected from someone installing equipment. They were very knowledgeable about their work and explained things carefully. 3) They had a high level of understanding about how my new system operates and, therefore, seemed more like engineers than equipment installers. 4) They went right to work. In fact, when they were explaining what the day would be like, they described it as pretty much nose to the grindstone. And they went right downstairs and started in. They went at it all day long, with only a short break for lunch. 5) They seemed happy to be doing what they were doing. Imagine being in someone's basement all day and being happy about that! 6) They did a good job of cleaning up after themselves. 7) They were pleasant and personable and easy to relate to. Usually, I dread having workmen around the house because it disrupts my routine and peace of mind. But Adam and Walt were not obtrusive at all. All in all, things couldn't have gone better. It makes me look forward to my annual service calls on the new system. Thank you."

"Our thanks to Wally, Jason and Rick for their installation of our Trane high efficiency heating and cooling system. We are very pleased with the quality of their work. They did an excellent job in the layout and design of our new system to effectively and efficiently use the space previously occupied by our old system. Their integration of the new equipment with the existing supply air plenum and ductwork is a work of art. Thanks for a job well done!"

"My wife was home at the time of the installation and she said they were very friendly and polite. They offered multiple times to answer any questions and offered to show her how everything works. The work was completed in a reasonable amount of time. I didn't deal with the people installing the unit, but my wife was pleased so I was too. Rick answered all the questions that I had at the time of the quote, but didn't stay too long and waste my time with useless information, which I appreciated. I would and already have recommended Hetter to a friend."

"I want to let you know that Chuck did a fabulous job last week when he rescued us just as the January thaw turned into an Arctic blast. We had to call in the evening and Chuck came that same day. Our heat came up quickly, but just for the night (a part was missing) and then Chuck rearranged his following work day to finish the job when it was convenient for us. This guy deserves a bonus!"
Christopher - Clintonville
"It's a pleasure to let you know how pleased we are with your work in installing our new heating/air conditioning system. We were not looking forward to shopping for this kind of home improvement. You gave us solid, well-informed advice on what would work best. With your help we could choose a furnace that was adequate, but not more than needed. Ann particularly appreciates that you pointed us to an air conditioner that is remarkably quiet. After talking with you, the choice of contractor seemed easy. The installation was pretty much stress-free for us. The crew came on time, and their competence and concentration was a joy to see. They are all professionals who take obvious pride at being good at what they do. They have a healthy respect for their medium - natural gas - which was very reassuring. Finally, we want to give an unqualified recommendation to Hetter Heating & Cooling. The entire transaction was a pleasure, even through writing a check for services that were eminently reasonably-priced. Thanks to all of you."

"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)!!"

"The folks at Trane:
All the research that I did in comparing HVAC systems (Carrier, Bryant, etc) it seemed like other companies would compare themselves to Trane....There are alot of companies in the Columbus, Ohio area that sell Trane. I was very fortunate to find a company that did a great job! That company was Hetter Heating & Cooling...Please note that I do not often participate in consumer surveys but I felt it was important to let you know the integrity and high STANDARDS this company has set for itself and to let you know that you are well represented by a company like Hetter Heating & Cooling."
Chief Master Sgt. Steve - Galloway
"Lance was courteous, thorough and professional. He suggested installing a surge protector on our air conditioner, and we agreed, so he installed it on the spot after a very knowledgeable (on his part) Q & A session. We know from 11 years of experience with Hetter Co. that their technicians are highly trained, reliable, efficient, dependable and bring integrity to every job. We are very fortunate to be able to count on consistent, excellent service."
David & Rodnea - Clintonville
"I just returned from out of town and am catching up on e-mails. I was very happy with the way Hetter performed the installation - they were very considerate, and did a clean, neat job. Rick followed up with calls, and the furnace has been very efficient. I even noticed a decrease in my electric bill. As for the AC, Hetter came out over a week ago to test the system and make sure it was ready for the summer. It seemed quiet to me. If you choose Hetter, I hope you enjoy your experience with them, as well as their Trane product, as much as I do."
Rose - Dublin
"I wanted to write to express how impressed I was by the two men that installed my new furnace and air conditioner. They were quiet, efficient, hard working and willing to answer my questions. Everything was cleaned up when they left after explaining how the system worked, how to operate the humidifier and the thermostat. I felt your company had a fair price and also gave me the information needed to make an informed decision without being high pressured to sell me your deal. Kevin was accessible at any time to answer all questions by phone or email. I will definitely recommend your company."
Barbara - Clintonville
"I want to let you know how much I'm enjoying my new heating system - especially this week. We're toasty warm and I no longer feel like we have a cash-fired furnace! Thanks again. It was the least painful $7600 I ever spent."
Shelley - Clintonville
"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."

"Hello: I wanted to let you know that the Columbus City Inspector was here to examine the installation of my new water heater. Of course, the installation passed with flying colors. He kept saying, 'What nice work. Look at the beautiful work. What a nice job.' I would also like to add my compliments re the courtesy and professionalism of the gentleman who installed my water heater. Excellent workmanship and courtesy -- an unbeatable combination. Kudos! "

Sweeping changes to affect entire water heater industry coming in 2015
The United States Department of Energy has mandated new & higher energy efficiency ratings on virtually all residential gas, electric, oil & tankless water heaters, completely altering the water heater landscape. These mandates will impact how water heaters are designed, manufactured, distributed and installed. For consumers - the size, especially the diameter of gas water heaters, will increase. This means a significant increase in price for those looking to replace their water heater next year. To accommodate the production of 2015 compliant products, Bradford White is currently in the midst of their largest plant expansion in company history which includes the installation of the most advanced manufacturing equipment. Due to the mandates, gas water heaters may require additional insulat...
Trane introduces its variable speed air conditioner
Trane is not usually the first to market with new technology; however their reputation for what customers really want - reliability - is second to none.
