Teca provides British Columbia's residential heating, ventilating and cooling industry with superior training programs and a collective voice in local and provincial issues affecting our trade.

Through the support of our members throughout BC - contractors, suppliers, manufacturers, utilities, educators, consultants and regulators - and our volunteer board, TECA works to ensure safe, efficient and comfortable HVAC systems are installed in BC homes. We believe that only through the establishment of proper training programs and the enforcement of minimum standards can the public be assured that such systems are indeed installed.
