Meet the all american teaM
At All American Heating, teamwork is key. We consider ourselves a family and treat one another accordingly. We take pride in hiring – and keeping – the best HVAC and plumbing technicians and office staff around. Our management goes to great lengths to treat our employees well, paying more than competitive wages, and providing excellent benefits. This increases our pool of candidates and lets us be selective about hiring. In addition to meeting the technical requirements, we choose team members who are “All American People” – folks who fit in with our values and business principles, and who believe in doing their best on every job and treating our customers with courtesy and respect. This also helps us build a team that works together and plays together very well, making work a great place to be.
So, meet the All American Team – always here and ready to serve you with great quality work at a fair price, all done with a smile.
Our Fearless Leader, Mark Harrill is the Service Manager and owner of All American Heating. Mark originally hails from Little Rock, Arkansas, but has spent time all over the country. Mark has had a varied and interesting career, starting with a bachelor’s degree in Accounting. He spent more than 30 years in business leadership before giving up Corporate America for the Front Range and a new beginning with All American Heating. Mark is NATE certified and his favorite parts of this job are developing his team, making clients happy, and helping improve the communities we serve. Mark looks to business icon Bill Campbell (Columbia University, Intuit, GO Corporation, Apple) for inspiration, adopting many of Campbell’s philosophies to run the business. A little-known fact about Mark is that he worked in the entertainment industry for 15 years! Mark’s advice to All American Heating’s customers is to remember that your mechanical system is what keeps your home alive.
Tim Greenlaw is our General Manager – but we call him “The Mad Scientist,” because rarely does he come across a system he can’t find a way to fix. With more than 21 years of experience, Tim has remained dedicated to the heating and plumbing industries throughout his career. To that end, he has achieved more than 1500 hours (!!!) of continuing education over the last decade and has too many certifications to list. Tim looks to his father for inspiration and as his role model and does his best to live up to the example his dad set. Tim describes himself as “very outdoorsy” and enjoys hiking, hunting, and numerous other outdoor activities. An environmentalist, Tim enjoys applying his philosophy of conservation to his work, helping his customers live more comfortable and greener lives in their homes by installing more energy-efficient systems, and often gives the advice, “Do it once, and do it right!” We agree, Tim!
HVAC and Plumbing Technicians

He has embraced the mindset of a native Coloradan and understands well the people we serve. Howard has been in the HVAC industry for more than 10 years and has a cumulative total of 45 years of experience in construction – in other words, he knows his stuff. In addition, Howard holds HVAC and Contractor STP certifications. He tells us his favorite part of his job is the company he works for (thank you, Howard!) An interesting fact about Howard is that even with all his experience, he is still very willing and eager to learn. Howard says he doesn’t really have a role model, but rather holds himself accountable for doing his very best, every day. Finally, Howard’s advice to customers is to listen to your salesman or product rep; they have the knowledge to provide the exact product you need.
Mike Lykins (AKA “Mikey” around here!) is a Service Technician with All American Heating. Originally from Fort Worth, Texas, Mike brings 10 years of experience in the plumbing and HVAC industry to the company. His extensive certifications include Confined Spaces (you win the crawl spaces, Mikey!), OSHA 10, Journeyman, Residential Plumbing, and Trench and Shoring. Mike’s favorite part of his job is meeting and learning about his customers, and the experiences he has while in the field. Mike considers his father-in-law to be his role model and works hard to live up to the example he sets. There’s not a lot about Mikey that’s NOT interesting, but we’ll start with the fact that he can say the ABCs backwards! Mike’s advice to his customers is to always maintain your equipment as it if were a luxury car.
Service Technician Gage Pike originally comes from the midwestern town of Morristown, Indiana. After completing his high school equivalency, Gage studied and became a certified carpenter. Gage’s favorite part of this job is that no two days are the same and that he gets to work on something new every day. Gage’s role model and mentor is his dad, and Gage has learned a great deal from him – especially in this business. An interesting fact about Gage is that he likes to “go fast on anything with wheels.” (Yeah, that sounds about right.) Gage advises his customers to keep up with their HVAC system maintenance to avoid issues.

He holds a general certification in equipment services from the EPA. As one of our newest team members, Cory’s favorite part of the job is learning new things every day. Growing up, Cory looked to his grandfather for inspiration and still seeks to emulate him every day. An interesting fact about Cory is that he is missing his first rib on the right side. (You’ll have to ask him how that came to be because we haven’t heard the story yet.) Cory’s favorite advice to offer customers is: “A heating system is like a stool. It needs all the legs, or it will collapse.” He is not wrong.
Service Tech Helper Draven McMillen jumped right into the HVAC and plumbing industry after high school. While he is new to the business, he is learning fast and working toward his certifications. His dad, Jeff (a Service Technician at All American Heating) is his role model, and he is learning from him every day. In fact, that’s what he says he likes best about his job – learning new things! A fun fact about Draven is that he is double-jointed. Draven’s advice to his customers is simple, but powerful: “Listen to the professionals. They know what they are doing…”
