"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
"I want to let you know how much I'm enjoying my new heating system - especially this week. We're toasty warm and I no longer feel like we have a cash-fired furnace! Thanks again. It was the least painful $7600 I ever spent."
Shelley - Clintonville
"Jeff & I wanted to personally thank you for the way you took care of our recent problem with our Trane air conditioner. We were so thrilled with the efficiency in which you handled the problem with the compressor and for replacing this under warranty. We just wanted to let you know that we appreciate this so much. We didn't want this to go unnoticed. We also wanted to thank you for the wonderful employees that work at Hetter Heating & Air Conditioning. James has been out many times to our house and is always very pleasant, knowledgeable, efficient, friendly and prompt. Again, thank you for prioritizing customer service and valuing us as loyal customers. We will continue to sing your praises and refer as many clients to you as possible. Hope this letter finds you and your family doing well and enjoying this summer."

"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 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
"Our thanks to Wally, Jason & 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!"
Jean - Clintonville
"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
"Just a note to say thank you to everyone that has been to my home. You guys all made this a great experience as every one of you were very kind, nice & just enjoyable."
Mamie - UA
"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
"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 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
"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
"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
"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."
Renee - Columbus
"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."

Hot Water Tanks are now more expensive
On April 16, 2015 the new higher energy efficiency ratings on virtually all residential gas, electric & oil water heaters took effect as mandated by the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act (NAECA). For consumers this means a significant increase in price. We are seeing - in some cases - up to a 40% increase. Also, the size of the new tanks - especially the diameter - may be larger. Due to mandates, gas water heaters may require additional insulation and will be required to incorporate electronic ignition among other changes. In most cases, according to Bradford Whites website, the new products will differ only slightly in size and therefore will easily replace the majority of existing products. Homeowners whose hot water heaters currently fit in a tight space may be faced with an ex...
AEP's rebate program shrinks
Homeowners who are planning to install a new higher efficient air conditioner or heat pump this year will receive a little less from AEP in the form of rebates. American Electric Power has announced a new rebate structure: $200 for heat pump systems that qualify; $450 for heat pumps that qualify for early retirement; $150 for qualifying air conditioners; and $275 for ACs in early retirement. Adding a thermostat can bring the maximum all-electric rebate possible to $520; for traditional gas furnace & AC homes the maximum - with thermostat - is now $310. The early retirement plan is new. Its purpose is to incentivize homeowners to purchase a more efficient system, though the parameters are narrower than before. If you have any questions on the new rebate structure and/or would like a free in...
