"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."

"We are very glad to inform you of this highly complimentary letter from one of your consumers. It was very refreshing to receive it since about 99% of our mail deals with complaints on companies. Thank you so much for the favorable experience given to this consumer."

"Our thanks to Wally, Jason and Rick for their installation of our Trane high efficiency heating and cooling system. We are very pleased with the quality of their work. They did an excellent job in the layout and design of our new system to effectively and efficiently use the space previously occupied by our old system. Their integration of the new equipment with the existing supply air plenum and ductwork is a work of art. Thanks for a job well done!"

"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'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!"

"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
"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!"

"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
"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
"I would like to thank you for responding so promptly regarding the plenum and other related concerns. I would also like to mention that Jason, who did the work in the crawl space for us, carefully explained everything to me and to my daughter about what needed done and why. Technicians such as Jason and your availability and care for your customers are what makes the fine repuatation that this company has. I always feel that I can trust in the quality of workmanship and customer service that Hetter provides. Your company was highly recommended to me and I can understand why. I will recommend you to others in the future."
Loretta - Worthington
"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
"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
"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
"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."
Fred - Dublin
"We wanted to thank all of the people at Hetter Heating & Cooling for all of their help with the purchase and installation of our new furnace. Purchasing our new furnace from Hetter Heating & Cooling has been one of the best decisions we have ever made!!! To say that Hetter went above and beyond doesn't seem to do justice to the added benefits of working with Hetter. We love our new furnace and Humidifier! We really appreciate the additional information about the energy audits that Hetter provided to us. We had the energy audits performed by Columbia Gas and American Electric Power. We implemented the recommendations from the energy audits and we were eligible for rebates that covered all of the improvements. After installing the furnace and completing the energy audits, our electric costs have reduced by 30-40% from the previous year!"

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....
Honeywell VisionPro 8000 thermostat can help your second floor
Our industry is in the midst of a wild thermostat roll-out phase that has been going on now for at least three years. As a consumer, too many options can be confusing.
