"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 convey my WARMEST gratitude for the incredible work you've done. Jason spent the better part of 6 hours at our house, both inside (34 degrees) and outside (-5), working to ensure that my wife and I could withstand this brutal winter. Kevin left and came back with space heaters to make it just that much more tolerable, and I can't thank you both enough. I will be recommending you to all my friends, and will be sure to write a glowing review on Yelp. No need to call me or respond, but please accept our sincerest gratitude for the great work you've done for us. Thank you !"

"Hetter always sends quality people that are polite, knowledgeable, and quick. The only way I would look for another HVAC company would be if they went out of business."
Bob - Upper Arlington
"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
"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
"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
"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
"My wife and I wanted to take a minute to thank you for all your help in getting our air conditioner replaced & running. You and your staff were so polite and respectful, just overall a very professional group. We can't thank you enough for your promptness and efficiency in getting our situation taken care of. We will pass our praises to all our friends. Thanks again."
Jon & Jes - Columbus
"I want to let you know that Chuck did a fabulous job last week when he rescued us just as the January thaw turned into an Arctic blast. We had to call in the evening and Chuck came that same day. Our heat came up quickly, but just for the night (a part was missing) and then Chuck rearranged his following work day to finish the job when it was convenient for us. This guy deserves a bonus!"
Christopher - Clintonville
"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
"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
"Hello, My husband Fritz and myself would like to give a big kudos to Lance who came to look at the furnace this morning! We feel so comfortable with this service as he quickly assessed potential areas that could be a problem, as well as showed us what to look for if the same problem occurs again. Great customer service from him and we will definitely request him should we need service again!"
Peggy & Fritz - Columbus
"This past week a 3 man team from your company installed a new furnace and A/C at my home.
I was greatly impressed by their workmanship, courtesy and work ethic. They worked together as a smooth, united team.
Thanks for sending such a good team."
Lois - Whitehall
"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
"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!

Two Hetter service technicians reach company milestones
Two of Hetter's most talented & trusted service technicians reached milestones this year. 2015 marks fifteen years with Hetter for James Jack; ten years with Hetter for Lance Burgess. They are two of the reasons why Hetter not only continues to win customer service awards year after year, but continues to grow in an unpredictable market. In the words of our customer Phil from Powell "it has been worth every penny working with your company in the last year. James was thorough and found the problem and fixed it," he said. We realize in a nutshell that's what customers expect. James is thorough and gives it to you straight. He is our Go To guy on a lot of the more perplexing service issues we come across. The kinder & gentler version of James is Lance. "Lance makes sure that I understand if t...
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...
