"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."
Joyce - Upper Arlington
"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."

"Smart, friendly and resourceful: those are the words that first come to my mind when I think of Hetter. Rick figured out our house’s heating and cooling needs, and then proposed consolidating our two climate systems into one thereby giving us a system more efficient and appropriate for our small house. Hetter worked with me when I postponed the installation, and when the day came to start the complicated project which involved extensively rebuilding our ducts to make them work with one system I knew I had made an excellent choice in Hetter. The workers were extremely friendly, tidy, and detail-oriented, and they were always glad to talk about and explain their work. When we need to replace our water heater, we’ll no doubt call Hetter again. "

"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'd like to share my review of your installation crew, Wally and Dave. They were outstanding in all phases: They showed up on time; They were considerate of my property. Dave parked his truck in the street rather than risk leaking oil on my concrete drive. I initially offered to have him park in the drive to be closer to the house; They put down throw rugs and runners to protect my carpeting and hardwood floors; They were very neat and meticulous in all their work; They required no supervision on my part (a rarity for me - ask my family!); They added a special program on the thermostat; They gave me time I requested to paint behind the old thermostat before installing the new one; They finished on time; They gave me advice on replacement filters (to order some 30 day throw aways from you); They worked together as a team and showed that they liked their job - and it showed to me and my wife. I'm super happy we chose Hetter."

"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
"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
"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 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."
Jim - Plain City
"Just wanted to let you know that I was very pleased with they guys that came and installed our AC. Professioanl, personable, lovely. Will certainly refer your company."
Dorene - Worthington
"Our thanks to Wally, Jason and Rick for their installation of our Trane high efficiency heating & 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!"

"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
"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."

"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."

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. It really comes down to what you are looking for. If you have a problem with your second floor getting too hot or too cold in the middle of the night, says Hetter president John Hetterscheidt, installing the Honeywell VisionPro 8000 thermostat with a portable comfort control (hand held remote) is a relatively inexpensive way to help mitigate that isuue. Honeywell recently upgraded its VisionPro 8000 which can now include a portable comfort control that actually senses the temperature of the room it is in. This same thermostat also comes with year-round humidity control and can include remote access from your smartphone. For ...
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...
