About Hero Plumbing, Heating & Cooling
Offering Reliable Heating, AC & Plumbing in Twin Cities for 100+ Years
Hero Plumbing, Heating & Cooling was founded as Wm. F. Ridler Plumbing, Heating & Cooling by innovative engineer Harry C. Ridler on Grand Avenue in South Minneapolis all the way back in 1914. Along with his sons, Harry started with plumbing and heating installations in new homes throughout Minneapolis, primarily focusing on the area that would eventually become known as Uptown. Now, more than 100 years later, Hero Plumbing, Heating & Cooling continues to serve residents of Minneapolis, as well as St. Paul and the entire Twin Cities region.
The company was sold to Pete Savage in 1982. Pete was committed to continuing the company’s tradition of providing fantastic home services, including heating, air conditioning, and plumbing in Minneapolis and the surrounding areas. In 2010, Wm. F. Ridler Plumbing, Heating & Cooling became Uptown Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, a name change designed to reflect the company’s decades of experience and we are now known as Hero Plumbing, Heating & Cooling. While the technology may have changed, we have remained an industry leader. We are, as always, a family-owned and operated business, committed to top-quality workmanship and unparalleled customer service.

Saluting Our Service Members
Our current owner, Josh Savage, is a Veteran of the Minnesota Army National Guard. After enlisting right after the September 11th terrorist attacks, Josh commanded a combat engineering unit in Iraq from 2007-2008. It was during this time, leading a unit comprising carpenters, electricians, plumbers, and other skilled professionals that Josh gained invaluable leadership and management experience that he would later use as the owner of a small business.
Josh was named a 2015 Veteran’s Voice awardee of the Minnesota Humanities Center, which recognizes veterans who are “thriving and making extraordinary contributions to their communities.” At Hero Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, we salute all of our veterans and service members, including those members of our team that have served our country.
