"I am sending this e-mail to Hetter Heating to let you know that I was once again impressed with the way the company conducts business. The technician that came to our house today was Chuck. Chuck was very professional and courteous. He conducted a fall check up on my furnace. He cleaned the flame sensor and burners, checked the manifold gas pressure, checked the amps on the inducer motor, checked the blower motor amps, and made sure the Aprilaire humidifier was working properly. He even answered a few of my questions on my dual gas water heating tanks. 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 friends and neighbors."

"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
"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!"
Judie & Greg - Westerville
"We have been very pleased with your service and attention to detail and just your flexibility and willingness to work with us. Adam & Rick did a great job, were very friendly, and did not hesitate to offer information and explain what they were doing. I can honestly say this has been one of, if not the best contracting experiences we have had. We will not hesitate to recommend your company to our friends and neighbors."
Scott - Powell
"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 !"

"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."

"Wally and Matt installed my heat pump / furnace yesterday and did a fabulous job! They were professional and personable, and worked non-stop from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM (except for a short lunch break). I was very impressed!!
Also - though 4 of my cats hid upstairs the whole time, the other 2 were out and about, and the guys were very cognizant of keeping the doors closed. I know that added an extra challenge, and I appreciate it.
They should be recognized for their excellent work!

"We are extremely happy with our new Trane heating and cooling system that was installed last week. Everyone involved in the installation was friendly, courteous and professional. They took the time to answer our questions and were more than willing to make sure we were satisfied. We would highly recommend Hetter Heating & Cooling. It was a real pleasure to do business with you. Thank you!"
Doug - Clintonville
"Good Morning Rick - I would like to thank you, Adam and Ric. This experience of replacing my furnace and AC has been more enjoyable and less painful then I originally thought it would be and I have no doubt that it was because the three of you. Just a note to verify that I did go with the correct AC. We started off with the temp set at 75 and the fan in the ON position and my wife actually wanted the temp bump up. We have found our comfort zone with the temp set at 76 and the fan in the ON position. As I told Adam and Ric as they left, I probably still have 4 or 5 years on my water heater but you will definitely be the first people I call when its time to replace it. Thanks for the great experience."

"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and your team for the fantastic job that Hetter Heating & Cooling did getting a new furnace in my house during the week between Christmas and New Years ! I was so amazed and pleased that you were able to get this installation scheduled the next day. Your technicians Walt and Kevin are excellent ambassadors for your company! They were both very professional and pleasant! They spent the better part of the day here, completing this installation. As you may recall, it was a very tight space they had to work in and it did not make for an easy installation. They did such a great job! They talked with me at the start of the process, midway through the installation and again when the installation was completed. They explained the details of the work that was going to be done, they explained some issues that I needed to be aware of and address related to air conditioning and explained what I needed to do going forward in the way of care for the new furnace. They answered all of my questions to my satisfaction. And at the end of the day, they left no indicators that they had been there, except for a warm and comfortable house. Again, my thanks ! This entire first experience with Hetter Heating & Cooling was pleasant, professional, stress-free and quite informative for me. You are my HVAC team from this day forward. And I will send any friends, relatives or neighbors with HVAC needs directly to your door! Also, I will get my feedback posted on Angie's List for Hetter before the week is out. You can expect all A's from me!"

"Our neighbors had recently used your company to replace both their heating and cooling systems and highly recommended Hetter for the job. The Trane name in addition to a competitive price and special offers made Hetter the right choice."
Judy & Roger - Lewis Center
"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
"Thanks so much for your professional efforts and, again, of the three companies I have contacted, I am very pleased with my choice to call Hetter. Please let Chuck (and Chuck's direct report) know what a professional first impression of the company he made on this customer. Also, I will definitely save you a mimosa seedling as they establish their roots over the next two months."
Debra - Clintonville
"Just a follow-up from the work you guys did for us back in April. We love the new Trane system you put in. Our house has never been so comfortable. That new system can really move air and it keeps even our split level upstairs comfortable. We have also seen significant energy bill savings (even though the summer has been cool it is still obvious the system has helped). So, thanks again for recommending a great system."
John - Worthington
"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 !"

AEP's rebate program shrinks
Homeowners who are planning to install a new higher efficient air conditioner or heat pump this year will receive a little less from AEP in the form of rebates. American Electric Power has announced a new rebate structure: $200 for heat pump systems that qualify; $450 for heat pumps that qualify for early retirement; $150 for qualifying air conditioners; and $275 for ACs in early retirement. Adding a thermostat can bring the maximum all-electric rebate possible to $520; for traditional gas furnace & AC homes the maximum - with thermostat - is now $310. The early retirement plan is new. Its purpose is to incentivize homeowners to purchase a more efficient system, though the parameters are narrower than before. If you have any questions on the new rebate structure and/or would like a free in...
New efficiency standards for heat pumps now in place
A new national efficiency standard for heat pumps is now in effect. As of January 1, 2015, all split system heat pumps installed in the US need to reach at least 14 SEER (cooling) and 8.2 HSPF (heating). The US Department of Energy is allowing manufacturers to exhaust existing 13 SEER heat pump inventory up until mid 2016. Most local HVAC distributors however will not be stocking 13 SEER units. Homeowners will incur a price increase if they choose to install a minimum efficient heat pump system. Interestingly this new efficiency is very close to the minimum efficiency required to qualify for AEPs cash rebate program - 14.5 SEER and 8.5 HSPF. If you have any questions on the Department of Energys new efficiency standards, please feel free to contact our sales office at (614) 784-9200....
