Recycling Providing the Comfort You Deserve...Since 1930


We share an obligation to care for the Earth. While our recycling practices may take more time and effort, we simply see it as being environmentally responsible and doing our part for a greener tomorrow.

Like You, We Recycle

Are you curious about what happens to your old furnace and air conditioner? The recycling process begins right at your home! Before moving your old air conditioner or furnace, our certified technicians safely remove and handle hazardous refrigerant, following strict EPA protocol in order to prevent leaks into the ground or atmosphere. Old equipment is brought back to Standard Heating’s recycling facility, where we dismantle and sort materials.

Refrigerant Recycling Process

Clean refrigerant is stored at Standard Heating’s EPA-approved facility and then sent to a refrigerant reclaimer to be recycled back to its virgin state. Standard Heating completes the recycling process by purchasing the recycled reclaimed refrigerant. Contaminated refrigerant is sent to our partner, Reclamation Technologies, that either:

  • Stores the refrigerant until a technology becomes available to recycle it, or
  • Destroys it following EPA guidelines.

"Standard Heating has one of the most thorough and conscientious recycling programs of all heating and cooling contractors in the Twin Cities.”
– Reclamation Technologies, Inc., EPA-Certified Refrigerant Reclaimer
