"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."

"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
"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."

"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 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!"

"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 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)!!"

"I'd been trying to sell my home for five months with no luck. The home has been updated in every way except it had the original electric furnace from 30 years ago. In an effort to meet my deadline on my new home being built I called Hetter and had a new Trane heating/cooling heat pump system installed. The next showing was at 9AM the day after the install and that guy bought my house. I had the opportunity to speak with the home inspector for the buyer and he commented on the Trane system saying that was a huge factor in the sell. Also...your install guys were knowledgeable, polite, professional, and very neat. Chuck insisted that he pick up every piece of dust that he might have caused even though I told him it wasn't necessary. Awesome!"
Dennis - Groveport
"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

"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
"Jason was here yesterday for our semi-annual HVAC tune-up. I am grateful for your company's customer service. We had a new system (heat and AC) installed in June, 2011 and it has worked flawlessly and with the new energy efficient unit, has saved money on our utility bill. Jason did a great job (for as much as I know about checking an AC unit!). Great to have you as a vendor."

"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
"I wanted to convey my appreciation for the tremendous service with the installation of the furnace a couple of weekends ago. The technicians were very professional and pleasant and performed the installation in a very timely manner."
Chris - Upper Arlington
"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."

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...
