What is an OHPBA Member?

Thanks for visiting our website! Members of OHPBA and HPBA are typically retail stores or service companies in the hearth, patio and barbecue business. They typically sell and service wood, pellet and gas stoves and fireplaces. Some are HVAC contractors or service companies providing natural gas or propane services. Other members sell outdoor room products such as barbecues, patio furniture, umbrellas, spas and patio heaters. Some are chimney sweeps that both sell appliances and install and repair chimneys and venting systems. The "location/store" is listed as the member and a person (usually the owner/manager) is assigned as the main member contact. Members of OHPBA automatically become members of the national association, HPBA.

Government Affairs
If we let up on our presence at the Oregon legislature, we can expect troubled times ahead. Last session, there were proposals to require a plumber’s license for running fuel gas pipe and an HVAC license for venting and fuel gas piping related work – and we expect to see these proposals again at future Oregon legislative sessions. Your membership in OHPBA will help us achieve our goal of defending our industry from the undue burden we would face if other licensing programs were enacted that only partially captured our work. Only OHPBA members receive updates on how changes in building codes affect the hearth industry. Also, only OHPBA members receive help from the OHPBA office on codes related problems. OHPBA is your representative with air quality agencies, like DEQ. Only members receive updates on proposed air quality rules in Oregon that affect hearth and barbecue appliances.

HPBA provides leadership in developing and implementing strategies to meet legislative and regulatory challenges. The Association successfully tackles major safety and environmental issues and delivers solutions that avoid unwarranted regulations while preserving the reputation of the hearth products industry. Member companies are involved in designing the industry’s strategies, and can take early advantage of resulting opportunities.

Media Exposure
Your association is your voice to the media! OHPBA sends press releases to local papers on your behalf to highlight trends in the industry, to promote clean burning appliances, and to offer home owners seasonal safety tips. When the OHPBA office gets a call from a newspaper, radio, or TV station, only local members are referred to the reporter.
