Our History

Your Faithful Local Plumber for Over 70 Years 

Jensen Andersen was founded in the late 1940s as the Jensen Company. 40 years later, the company was purchased by Brian Packard, who developed the business’ heating, air conditioning, and plumbing services. Since then, Jensen Andersen has grown into one of the most well-known and trusted plumbing and HVAC companies in the St. Cloud area. Our decades-long commitment to our core values of honesty and integrity has paved the way for partnerships with the industry’s top brands and solidified our reputation as the area’s go-to A/C expert 


Plumbing is a dirty business. When you partner with us, you can expect transparency before, during, and after your project. We prioritize clear communication and keep customers updated on their project’s progressfrom planning and design to implementation and maintenance. 


When customers choose Jensen Andersen for their plumbing and HVAC needs, we do everything we can to show them that trust is well placed. We provide thorough assessments and accurate estimates, and we’ll never try to sell you equipment or repairs you don’t need. 

Community Support

Our local community has done so much to get us where we are today, so it’s only fair we do our part to give back. We support local residents and businesses by providing affordable HVAC solutions and expertise comparable to a large, national chain for a fraction of the cost. What’s more, our internship and apprenticeship programs provide students and novice plumbers the opportunity to develop their skills and break into the HVAC and plumbing industries. 

Our team

Jensen Andersen is more than just an HVAC company—we’re experts in the field with over 50 years of combined experience. Our team, history, and company values are deeply rooted in the Central Minnesota community we call home.
