The City of Westerville is known as “The Dry Capital of the World.” In 1859, a town ordinance was passed banning the sale of alcohol within city limits. By the 1870’s, the growing conflict between pro and anti-temperance forces came to a head and turned into what was referred to as “The Westerville Whiskey Wars.” In 1875, and then again in 1879, businessman Henry Corbin attempted to open the doors to his saloon in Westerville, and both times his business was blown up by local supporters of the non- alcohol ordinance. The reputation of this small town’s temperance was so significant that in 1909 the Anti-Saloon League moved its national headquarters from Washington, DC, to Westerville. Westerville remained dry throughout most of the 20th century.
Westerville is also the home of several well-known people including composer Ben Hanby, who penned the songs “Up on the Housetop” and “Darling Nelly Gray,” the story of an escaped slave, Joe Selby, on his way to Canada to earn money to free Nelly Gray. Hanby’s father, William Hanby, was an abolitionist and used their home as a stop on the Underground Railroad. Known today as the Hanby House, the home still stands today in the uptown Westerville area and is open to the public for tours. Businesswoman Cheryl Krueger, the founder of Cheryl & Co, a popular cookie company, headquarters her company in Westerville. Lastly, on the musical TV comedy “Glee,” Westerville is the location of a fictional private school, Dalton Academy, home to a rival choir. Care Heating & Cooling proudly serves the Westerville area.

I am concerned at this point and waiting to see how things turn out. Everything was excellent until I had a service call to re-wrap the outside connection (due to a possible animal chewing the insulation) I understand that a $67.14 charge was due but I had the service person also check a leak on my new furnace, he re-wrapped a connection and I pointed out a brown spot below which he said re-wrapping the above area would solve it. (this is all inside the house) Well it didn't, I had to make another call and have another service man come out and the original caulking was not completed and not enough was used so the leak was coming from where I pointed it out to the first service man. Unfortunately, Joe did not have the caulking needed since he was not given enough info for the call but he is coming back tonight to re-caulk the area and said it should be fine. The service men have been very polite and getting someone out quickly has also been great but being this is a brand new furnace/AC and two leaks I am concerned how well this unit will hold up and of any future problems.
Professionalism at it's best.
