Constantly giving back to the community

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.

WHAT IS WARM WHEELS?

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.

WHAT DOES WARM WHEELS PROVIDE?

The following services are provided to qualified applicants:

  • A licensed Mechanical Contractor will perform a 37- point system inspection on the heating system.
  • Problem areas are noted and minor repairs are made.
  • If the furnace fails the inspection and needs to be replaced or is in need of significant repairs, the Warm Wheels Program Adminstrator will call member supply houses to determine if they would be willing to donate a new furnace or parts that are needed for the repair.
  • After receiving the donation the Licensed Mechanical Contractor or Mechanic IV will replace or repair the heating system.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU QUALIFY FOR WARM WHEELS?

  1. Senior Citizen 60 + years old and/or physically and/or mentally disabled and/or are in financial need
  2. Meet predetermined income levels and have a financial need
  3. Own their own home

OUR DESIRE IS TO KEEP YOU WARM AND DRY

This year we will begin to work with the roofing association in Colorado Springs to provide, for those in need, new roofs. The PPMCA will provide vent jacks, caps and venting material when needed. It is important to us that along with being safe and warm our clients are also dry and secure under their roofs.

HOW CAN WE AID YOU AND/OR HOW CAN YOU AID US?
