Why Did We Change Our Name?


We started out in Minneapolis over 100 years ago which is why we originally named the company Uptown Plumbing, Heating and Cooling. Since then we have grown tremendously and today we service the entire Twin Cities metro area.

We have found that customers outside of Minneapolis were hesitant to call us because our name implied a geographical service area. As we continued to expand we wanted our name to reflect the company we are today, and customers to call or text us without hesitation.


Why Hero?

On top of that, we really like the name Hero and feel it’s a great fit for our business. Think about it, when your heating system is broken in January, or your AC system doesn’t work on the 4th of July or your toilet doesn’t flush, you want a Hero to come in and take care of your problems. And Hero really describes the people who work here: Talented, caring and hardworking people you would trust to send to your mother’s house.
