"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 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."

"Thank you for all your help. You and your team at Hetter Heating & Cooling did a fantastic job. Thank you for installing the new furnace and central air on such short notice. It was just in time for the winter weather. The furnace is so quiet and I am so warm, I love it !"
Jessica - West side
"Many thanks for getting the furnace in so quickly. It has been a blessing to me to have such wonderful angels surrounding me to be there in time of need....Also, the men that put in the furnace were complete gentlemen, very nice and professional."

"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 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."

"Thank you. It was a pleasure doing business with you. I have rated you and Hetter tops on the Trane survey."

"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!"

"We love the unit. It does just exactly what we had hoped it would do which is really cool that kitchen off. It does a great job. Thank you very much. Arragone & David did a fantastic job. They were very thoughtful & polite. Everything worked out really good."

"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!

"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 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."

"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."
Ann & John - Clintonville
"We had used a company for servicing which was much larger and 45 minutes away. I never knew who was coming to service our equipment and wanted a closer, smaller company. Hetter Heating & Cooling fulfills this need - their installation process and personnel was outstanding and I am about to contact them again for an estimate on our second furnace and air conditioner."

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. This past fall Trane unveiled its new TruComfort line of variable speed air conditioners and heat pumps - the XV20i. This state-of-the-art system delivers precise and efficient comfort by running its compressor at the exact speed needed to keep your home at the ideal temperature, no matter what the conditions are outside. The operating range of the XV20i is greater than that of its competition which means superior humidity removal. Its price is substantially better as well. Trane knows variable speed. They were the first to introduce variable speed in furnaces in the mid 80s. Putting variable speed in the outdoor unit grew from market dema...
Columbia Gas ups the pay out on its cash rebate program
Columbia Gas announced late last year a new customer cash rebate program for those interested in upgrading their current gas furnace to one that delivers 96% efficiency. Hetter Heating & Cooling is a proud partner with Columbia Gas in this program. At Hetter, we install both Trane & Tempstar furnaces - both of which offer homeowners a couple options that would qualify for up $300 right off your invoice. The efficiency & the cash rebate amount have been upped over the old program offered by Columbia Gas. Also, those who already have a high efficient gas furnace would still qualify. For all-electric homes, given the affordable cost of natural gas, those wanting to switch from electric to gas would qualify as well. Hetter Heating & Cooling is one of thirty local HVAC contractors & 67 statewid...
