The History of Standard Heating
“Standard Heating & Air Conditioning started in 1930. In the late 20s, a solicitor knocked the door of our grandmother’s home in her north east Minneapolis. Back in those days, door-knocking was a common business practice. This solicitor asked Mrs. Ferrara if the family needed to have its heating equipment serviced. She agreed to purchase the service with the condition that the company gave her son a job, which they did. And that was the start of a long story for Tony Ferrara and his family in the heating and cooling business. After working for some time in the area, Tony Ferrara went to St. Louis to sell heating equipment with Standard Heating of St. Louis; because he missed his home in the Twin Cities so much, he decided to come back and start Standard Heating & Air Conditioning in his parents’ backyard.”

Today, after more than 83 years, Standard Heating & Air Conditioning is still owned and operated by the Ferrara family. Todd and Ted Ferrara work hard every day to provide the Twin Cities with the highest professional service with the care of a family business.
