Welcome to TECA!

Provincially registered, non-profit trade society | Setting minimum standards for the residential and light commercial heating, ventilating and cooling trade in British Columbia

Whether you are involved in the hydronic, forced-air or ventilation portion of the residential and light commercial mechanical trade, the Thermal Environmental Comfort Association welcomes you to join our growing association. Our provincially registered, non-profit society was formed in May 2006 through the amalgamation of HVCI and RHWHA whose reputations were built on the technical accuracy, ease of use, inspectability and low cost of their training courses and materials. TECA offers the industry a collective voice in local and provincial issues relating to our trade.

Become a TECA Member now by submitting the Membership Application below. Membership is by company on a yearly dues basis, expiring annually on December 31st. Voting and Associate Memberships are available to all participants in the residential and light commercial heating, ventilating and cooling industry in British Columbia. Thank you for supporting TECA's development of training programs and other initiatives for the betterment of the trade.

Renewal invoices are mailed to the member representative in mid-November. Please keep your contact information up to date with TECA to ensure you receive the renewal notice and invitations to member meetings.

Note: Obtaining a Quality First™ number from a TECA training course is NOT the same as association membership.

Meeting attendance is open to all employees and guests at the member rate. Non-Members will pay a higher registration fee.
