"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
"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."
Phil - Powell
"John - I've just written what I think will be the best review you've ever had at Angies List - and you and your employees have EARNED it! I'll see if I'm able to past a bit of it below: I can't imagine a better HVAC and water heater company than Hetter. We've used Hetter for years for our furnace/AC work, and their work today on replacing a water heater was as excellent as their earlier service. First of all, Hetter has professional, knowledgeable, polite and friendly employees. Technicians Lance and Chuck first tried to see if the old water heater could be saved, searching for all the least-costly repairs that would get it working. A replacement was called for, and they let us make a decision. They worked quietly and efficiently, and answered every question we had. They even provided maintenance advice that will save us money down the road. If I owned a company, I'd want to manage it as John Hetterscheidt manages Hetter, hiring and keeping excellent employees that make customers feel glad they chose Hetter. I give Hetter the highest recommendation possible, and recommend Hetter to all my family and friends."
John - Worthington
"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."
Jim & Linda - Worthington
"My wife and I just wanted to tell you how happy we are with the new Trane heating and cooling system that you installed at our house recently. We were impressed with the high level of professionalism that your employees displayed and we are very happy with the quality and value of the Trane products. We will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone needing your services. It is very clear why Angie's List has given you such high marks for eight consecutive years."
George & Jane - Upper Arlington
"Thank you. It was a pleasure doing business with you. I have rated you and Hetter tops on the Trane survey."
Leroy - Dublin
"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!"

"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 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
"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
"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
"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
"To whom it may concern: I would like to commend your technician Lance. He was recently here to check my furnace for winter. He has always been very professional, polite and neat. He makes sure that I understand if there is a problem and gives me options for correcting or replacing the equipment. Your company is fortunate to have such a competent employee. It is a pleasure to do business with him. P.S. Please be sure to compliment him for me."
Barbara - Clintonville
"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."
Nathan - Galloway
"Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that Adam and Jason did an outstanding job yesterday. Very friendly, professional, personable, knowledgeable and focused on the task at hand - no slacking. Great communication from the minute they walked in the door to the minute they walked out. They did a great job. Thanks for sending the A team to the house. Everything is working great and more importantly, Ann is happy. Thanks guys !"

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.

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.
