"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."

"I just wanted to send you a quick note thanking you for a job well done. We can really tell a difference with the new furnace, more comfortable and less noise. Also, I just wanted to say that your installer Matt was quite professional and very conscientious. It is always nice to deal with professionals who do what they say they are going to do, and do it right the first time. Thanks again."

"Rick & John were well trained by their father, who was a friend of ours and serviced our appliances for us. They followed in his footsteps of doing the best service possible at a fair price. The installers were very nice and friendly also. The did their jobs very well and finished all work neatly. They knew their work well and the finished installation showed this. Great crew !"
Ed - Hilliard
"Hello, My husband Fritz and myself would like to give a big kudos to Lance who came to look at the furnace this morning! We feel so comfortable with this service as he quickly assessed potential areas that could be a problem, as well as showed us what to look for if the same problem occurs again. Great customer service from him and we will definitely request him should we need service again!"

"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."

"Just wanted to get back to you to let you know (now that I've actually used it a few days) how much I love the Trane furnace that Hetter Heating installed. It's so quiet I hardly know it's running. I'm sure the AC will be great too - although it will be a few months before I let you know about that. The installers - can't recall their names - were great, and took the time to explain everything to me. They did a wonderful job. I really appreciate working with a company that is as professional as Hetter ! I will certainly recommend you highly any chance I get."

"Anne & I are warm on a cold weekend thanks to your team's extraordinary customer service and professionalism! Starting with Rick - he pulled together the most comprehensive proposal and list of options I have ever seen in less than 24 hours - then somehow managed to pull a great crew together to get our HVAC system installed Friday. Walt & David were terrific - worked hard and did a beautiful job. Anne fell in love with them (Made them cookies - she never makes me cookies!) Please pass on our appreciation to them!
Yes - transitioning toward retirement - I am 68 and have 39 years with Columbia. Cant believe I have been president of COH since 2003. We are so fortunate.
I hope all is well with you and your family - you certainly are running a blue chip company. If you need a reference, don't hesitate to call on me."

"Just a note to say thank you to everyone that has been to my home. You guys all made this a great experience as every one of you were very kind, nice & just enjoyable."
Mamie - UA
"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
"I wanted to give you and your team of techs kudos. I've already met several of your team and like them all. I am very happy with the service I've been given. Everyone is kind, eager to problem solve and work hard (to) get us comfortable. I can't tell you how valuable it is to me to have a team I can trust with a very important part of our lives!"
Stephanie - Dublin
"My wife and I were very impressed by Matt and the crew that did the install. All were very conscientious and concerned with doing the job properly. You had mentioned that I would be pleased with the workmanship and I am. I can't praise them enough!"
Hal & Wanda - West side
"Following up on your phone message: the furnace is working very well. The men who installed it were very nice and professional. I also thought you were very nice when you came to help us determine what furnace to purchase. You werent pushy but offered good information. We are looking forward to continued relationship with your company."
Cynthia - Upper Arlington
"I want to thank Hetter Heating & Cooling for the positive experience I had over the weekend. Chuck graciously interupted his family activities on Sunday to come and diagnose the terminal status of my old unit and fixed it so I'd be cool the remainder of the day.
He returned Monday with Danny to install my new Trane A/C. I found both to be very courteous and extremely focused on the details of their work. I could cite several instances where I noticed "quality traits" that I don't see just anywhere. From Danny excusing himself to go back outside to move the old unit to the truck and pre-place the new unit because he was concerned about killing the grass if the units sat too long while they worked inside, to Chuck's meticulous manner in sealing around the furnace when the job was done so it would look good, this team was simply excellent.
It's clear to see why Hetter has won so many service awards. I won't hesitate to call for myself, or refer you to others, when your services are needed."
Mike - Canal Winchester
"I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how pleased I am with the work your company did for me last month on my water tank. When I awoke on October 26th I had a leak in my water tank. Upon calling your office we were able to set up an appointment for later that very day to look at my tank. As expected, the diagnosis was not good on my old tank. Your technician, Chuck, explained things to me and started work immediately. When I returned that evening from work the tank had been replaced and I had hot water. One phone call with fast, reliable service with no unexpected problems...what else can you ask for? Keep up the good work."
Jeff - Clintonville
"Our furnace was installed yesterday and we are looking forward to a toasty winter in our home! I wanted to pass along our appreciation for the outstanding job that Rick & Jason did on the install. As you anticipated, they came up with an alternative exhaust route by re-routing some of the interior ductwork. The location of the exterior pipes is perfect - hidden directly behind the bush and it did not require the fresh air intake to be re-routed. They were very professional, explained everything and took measures to protect the floors, etc. Please pass along our thanks and note their job well done. Thank you and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Hetter !"

Two Hetter service technicians reach company milestones
Two of Hetter's most talented & trusted service technicians reached milestones this year. 2015 marks fifteen years with Hetter for James Jack; ten years with Hetter for Lance Burgess. They are two of the reasons why Hetter not only continues to win customer service awards year after year, but continues to grow in an unpredictable market. In the words of our customer Phil from Powell "it has been worth every penny working with your company in the last year. James was thorough and found the problem and fixed it," he said. We realize in a nutshell that's what customers expect. James is thorough and gives it to you straight. He is our Go To guy on a lot of the more perplexing service issues we come across. The kinder & gentler version of James is Lance. "Lance makes sure that I understand if t...
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...
