"Hello: I wanted to let you know that the Columbus City Inspector was here to examine the installation of my new water heater. Of course, the installation passed with flying colors. He kept saying, 'What nice work. Look at the beautiful work. What a nice job.' I would also like to add my compliments re the courtesy and professionalism of the gentleman who installed my water heater. Excellent workmanship and courtesy -- an unbeatable combination. Kudos! "

"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."

"My name is Sandra C. and I had a real problem with my air conditioner in my home on June 30. I had another company come into my home and in 90 degree heat they put a unit in my home. I wasn't very happy with it as it never cooled my home. My son came home from out of town and he called them to come fix it. After three days with men coming to my home he told them to come and remove the unit. They did a very bad job. He called Trane and we got your company. I can't praise your men enough. They were very professional and very nice. They promised myself and my family we'd be happy with the service and this is to let your company know just how right they were. I'd like to say THANK YOU to Walt and Kevin. They were GREAT. I will recommend your company to all my friends. Again I say GOD BLESS YOU ALL."

"Anne & I are warm on a cold weekend thanks to your team's extraordinary customer service and professionalism! Starting with Rick - he pulled together the most comprehensive proposal and list of options I have ever seen in less than 24 hours - then somehow managed to pull a great crew together to get our HVAC system installed Friday. Walt & David were terrific - worked hard and did a beautiful job. Anne fell in love with them (Made them cookies - she never makes me cookies!) Please pass on our appreciation to them!
Yes - transitioning toward retirement - I am 68 and have 39 years with Columbia. Cant believe I have been president of COH since 2003. We are so fortunate.
I hope all is well with you and your family - you certainly are running a blue chip company. If you need a reference, don't hesitate to call on me."

"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."
Judy & Roger - Lewis Center
"Thanks again for sending a very capable technician to our home. James was thorough and found the problem and fixed it. It's been worth every penny working with your company the last year. Thanks again."
Phil - Powell
"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
"Our furnace was installed yesterday and we are looking forward to a toasty winter in our home! I wanted to pass along our appreciation for the outstanding job that Rick & Jason did on the install. As you anticipated, they came up with an alternative exhaust route by re-routing some of the interior ductwork. The location of the exterior pipes is perfect - hidden directly behind the bush and it did not require the fresh air intake to be re-routed. They were very professional, explained everything and took measures to protect the floors, etc. Please pass along our thanks and note their job well done. Thank you and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Hetter !"
Jodi - Upper Arlington
"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."
J. J. - Worthington
"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!"
Hal & Wanda - West side
"To whom it may concern: I would like to commend your technician Lance. He was recently here to check my furnace for winter. He has always been very professional, polite and neat. He makes sure that I understand if there is a problem and gives me options for correcting or replacing the equipment. Your company is fortunate to have such a competent employee. It is a pleasure to do business with him. P.S. Please be sure to compliment him for me."
Barbara - 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."

"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
"Really can't say enough. I brought four HVAC companies into my home for estimates on replacing my old furnace (and potentially adding AC). The initial phone call to your company to set up an appointment was pleasant and brief. The Hetter visit was the most productive, thorough and professional of the four. Pricing options were presented and the most appropriately sized furnace was verified, all without pushing a sale. Once my decision was made to have Hetter take the job, the installation was started within days. Adam & Walt were the technicians. They were pleasant, professional and it was obvious that they not only liked their job, but were very good at it. I felt like they did their work in my home in the same way they would have done it in their own homes. Overall pricing was absolutely comparable, but the confidence and stellar service was definitely the reason for my selection of Hetter Heating & Cooling. Would recommend your company in a heart beat and hopefully will have the chance to do so."
Julie - Clintonville
"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 !"

Expect your electric bill to go up this summer
AEP Ohio has been on a path the past several years to sell off its power plants and become a middle man distributor that delivers electricity to you. The plan - which is expected to be complete this summer - is to allow AEP Ohio customers to seek the lowest price in an open market from electric suppliers who compete against each other through periodic auctions. These auctions are overseen by the PUCO. How does that affect your bill? In the long run, the natural conclusion would be this is good for the consumer...and it hopefully will be. In the short run, however, your electric bill is still up. Why? Since AEP Ohio is now a distributor of electricity and not a supplier, off-peak discounts have been discontinued as has special rates for customers who use less kilowatt-hours than a specified...
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...
