The Warm Wheels program is operated by the PPMCA. The PPMCA was formed after a Carbon Monoxide tragedy that happened in Colorado Springs during the winter of 1990. PPMCA was created in 1991 and shortly after the PPMCA created Warm Wheels in conjunction with Silver Key to avert another potential tragedy due to a homeowner not having the resources to have a simple inspection and service of their heating system. Each year the PPMCA members donate company resources, equipment, and service technicians time to perform heating system inspections for qualified Colorado Springs and El Paso County residents.
Our objective is to perform heating system inspections for the elderly, physically and mentally disabled and those that are low income and cannot afford to have their heating systems checked. Our goal is to perform 125 inspections a year.
We work closely with Silver Key and Habitat For Humanity in order to serve their clients that are in need of our services. In 2015, we will also be working with Colorado Springs Utilities to be introduced to other local partners who work with people that may qualify to receive Warm Wheels services.
