The PPMCA is an association made up of Heating, Air-Conditioning and Plumbing contractors.

It also consists of associate members that include HVACR and  Plumbing Suppliers, Equipment Rental Businesses, Product Representatives as well as the Pikes Peak Regional Building Department, Colorado Springs Utilities and Black Hills Energy Corporation.  We greatly appreciate our Members and Associate Members and encourage all interested parties to complete our application for membership found on this website.

Why should you join PPMCA?

Here is the answer to this question:

Your  membership dues to the PPMCA are important for our industry.  The PPMCA communicates with the Pikes Peak Regional Building Department and our local Utilities as a common voice to help promote and enhance our industry and maintain a continued solid level of cooperation. There are over three hundred and fifty Commercial/Residential Mechanical Contractors listed on RBD’s website. We can strengthen our voice greatly when you join and effect changes more efficiently in the future.  The three General Membership Breakfast Meetings each year are filled with important information relative to our profession and we always have great speakers covering topics from Energy and Equipment Rebate Programs to trending topics and code updates. Maty’s Good To Go Catering has made the breakfast you enjoy worth it alone!  With a national shortage of 40,000 technicians today and projections for this number to double by the year 2020, education is important and finding quality technicians is paramount.  We have just completed the Enhanced Mechanic IV Training Series for 2015 which was made possible by a grant from The Pikes Peak Regional Building Department.  The PPMCA is working with our Regional Building Official and RBD’s operating boards to continue to receive funding and we are looking to develop a new program for 2016/2017 specifically geared to provide our Licensed Mechanic IV’s with in depth combustion analysis training.  This could not have happened had there not been a PPMCA in place to manage the training.  When you consider that it’s your permit money coming back to help train the Mechanics there is no down side realized.  We have a great thing going here in El Paso County and other areas of the country are wishing they could duplicate it.  The PPMCA has gained national attention for it’s commitment to CO Safety in a community by the addition of the Association as a sponsor of the Carbon Monoxide Safety Association, COSA.  Our members and associate members have “given back” to the elderly in the community by participating in the annual Warm Wheels Campaign for over twenty years running!  Leaving out all the past accomplishments, which in themselves are worth far more than $175.00 a year, this list should more than prove it is the best money you can spend to help promote the industry locally.  If you are thinking about becoming a member, please contact Don Piano for more information or complete our Membership Application found on this site under “Members”.   You can Help our trade be stronger by Joining us!  Consider it today.  We can only make it better with more members.  Thank you!

  • The PPMCA Energy Efficiency Incentive Program has ended. Thank you for your interest and participation in the program.
  • We provide training for your Technicians on an ongoing basis at a significant discount to members. In fact you can save enough money on the training alone to cover the cost of the membership, and remember in order to keep your Mechanics IV License, you need to have 6 hours of approved training a year.
  • The PPMCA boards meets once a month to plan for the future, look over problems that can affect our business, and if a major problem should occur we can call a meeting of the general membership in a very short period of time.
  • The PPMCA is a volunteer organization. All the board members and committee members give their time freely because they know that if it wasn’t for the PPMCA in the past most of us would not be in this business today, and the constant threat of losing more and more of our work to the public sector makes the time spent more than worth while.
  • One of the most overlooked benefits is meeting with all the other business owners and vendors. We all learn from each other. Maybe it is a new product or maybe a bad account to be careful about or how to deal with an employee problem. It is all good stuff that we can help each other with and makes us all better business men and women.
  • Warm Wheels is a community service that the PPMCA has created to aid our community to have their furnaces checked and at times repaired if they are unable to afford the service. Our members volunteer their time for this service.
  • We have three General Membership meetings per year where we keep you up to date on all the code changes as well as many other factors which can affect your business. During these meetings we provide you a free breakfast and speakers who can help you with everything from insurance problems to lien laws, and many other topics that can help you in your day to day business operations.
  • We have members on the Regional Building Mechanical Board who work continually with the PPMCA code advisory committee to insure that all of your problems, concerns, and issues are addressed.
  • The PPMCA is considered the “voice of the mechanical trades” in El Paso County and with more members we can continue to influence our governmental agencies for positive changes relative to our businesses.
