Disappointingly, on June 14th 2021, Pikes Peak Regional Building Department (PPRBD), under pressure by the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) Chief Plumbing Inspector, will remove licensed PPRBD Mechanical Contractors the right to sell and install water heaters. This policy would allow only Plumbing Contractors to do so.

DORA is basing this threat on Colorado Statute 12-155-118 (6) (a) (I). We believe, along with several lawyers, that DORA is grossly misinterpreting the statute. The statute plainly states a plumber’s license IS NOT required to install a water heater.

The majority of water heaters in El Paso County are gas fired appliances; proper exhaust venting, combustion air, gas piping and carbon monoxide are all issues that Mechanical Contractors are trained, tested and licensed for. These are serious safety concerns that have to be addressed on every water heater installation. Stripping Mechanical Contractors of this right is a gross disservice to thousands of our customers, all the residents of this county, our employees, our company and hundreds of Mechanical Contractors. This policy may cost your community members their businesses, their jobs and cause water heater prices to rise, as well as availability to decline. We urge everyone to speak out against this injustice by contacting Governor Jared Polis, Colorado Springs Mayor’s Office, county commissioners, Pikes Peak Regional Building Department and especially the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). Please help get the word out by sharing this, thank you! -Home Heating Service, Inc. Team

Colorado Springs’ Best Water Heater Repair Service

Today’s water heaters are better designed with government-mandated safety features installed. From original storage tank models to state-of-the-art tankless models for endless hot water, the newer models require more upkeep or maintenance than your grandfather’s water heater did!

Your new water heater may need to be cleaned, flushed or tuned for better performance. Or if your old storage tank is more than ten years old, replacing it with a newer, more efficient model may be the better choice. Tankless water heaters are especially beneficial in this case. Instead of wasting electricity by constantly heating 40 or 50 gallons of water at all times, tankless models are “on-demand”. They heat water only when you need it! For the maximum in water heating energy efficiency, definitely go with a tankless water heater!
