Minnesota winters can be brutal in so many ways, and just keeping yourself warm as you go about your daily business can be enough of a challenge for the average homeowner. You definitely don’t want to deal with a plumbing disaster and thousands of dollars in repair bills because of a burst pipe.
That’s the danger when pipes freeze, though, and the piping in attics, basements, crawl spaces, and garages is especially vulnerable this time of year. It’s important to stay on the lookout for the warning signs of a frozen pipe and to act quickly if you spot a potential problem.
The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is underway! Although your plate is already full with shopping, cooking, and decking the halls in preparation for visits from family and friends, it’s important to make time for some essential home maintenance.
Keeping your guests comfortable and safe is just as important as feeding them good food and providing clean sheets and towels. You don’t want to risk any heating or plumbing breakdowns, electrical shorts, or gas leaks any time of year, but especially not when the house is filled with people trying to relax and celebrate.
Residents of the St. Cloud area count on us to keep them warm and cozy during the frigid Minnesota winters, and we take that responsibility very seriously. But the team here at Neighborhood Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical cares about more than just your comfort — we also want to keep you safe!
That’s what our “Neighborhood Saving Neighbors” collection drive is all about.

You spent good money for your home air conditioning system. It is in your interest to do everything possible to prevent potentially costly repairs. Though every air conditioning system will eventually require at least one repair, Sauk Rapids homeowners who are proactive will minimize the frequency and magnitude of such repairs. The question is what, exactly, can homeowners do to prevent costly AC repairs? Our Sauk Rapids Air Conditioner Repair Company has the answers.
Air conditioner short-cycling occurs when the system repeatedly turns on and off without much of a delay between the cooling cycles. If your air conditioner is short-cycling in Elk River, do not assume it is occurring simply because the outdoor temperature is high. There is likely something wrong with the system's internal components. Short-cycling is likely to cause your AC unit to wear down much sooner than it should. Adding salt to the wound is the fact that short-cycling will hike your monthly energy bill. These are only some of the problems our AC Repair technicians see on a regular basis caused by AC short-cycling.

Let's take a quick look at the top signs that indicate it is time for an electrical inspection in St Cloud.
