New HVAC Offering from Alphalete Plumbing & Heat

Alphalete Plumbing & Heat Taps 30-year HVAC Specialist as Latest Strategic Partner

Former Technician to Bob Hope and Frank Sinatra now offers same level of leading expertise to Southern Colorado

Colorado Springs, Colo. – January 28, 2021Alphalete Plumbing & Heat, a leading residential plumbing and heat contractor serving southern Colorado, is pleased to announce Bob du Pignac as the newest addition to its team. With several decades of experience, du Pignac offers a wealth of plumbing and HVAC knowledge to all Alphalete customers.

“We are thrilled to add Bob to our team,” said Diego Lujan, founder of Alphalete Plumbing & Heat, who was named the 2020 Hispanic Business of the Year by the Colorado Springs Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. “Bob is a walking encyclopedia. He’s got an enormous amount of skill and talent, and his customer service is absolutely top-notch. Bringing him on board will allow Alphalete to build a whole new division focused on HVAC systems, in addition to the plumbing and radiant heat we’ve always offered.

A multi-talented service technician, du Pignac began his plumbing and HVAC career in Palm Springs, California as a teenager, working as a plumber, which helped him pay for college where he earned a degree in architecture from Cal Poly, Pomona. After graduation, he spent several years designing luxury homes in Southern California.

When the custom home market was affected by Desert Storm, du Pignac went back to the nostalgic work of his youth and reactivated his plumbing license, where he then earned his Master Plumber license and served as “plumber to the stars,” working on the homes of celebrities such as Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Ginger Rogers, and Red Skelton. 

In 1993, he decided to escape the desert heat and relocate with his family to Colorado Springs.

“I am excited to join Diego and his team,” said du Pignac. “Alphalete has a reputation for being tech-savvy, innovative, and truly customer-focused, which was a perfect match for me. People wonder sometimes what it was like providing service for celebrities and my answer is: I’ve always tried my hardest to bring the highest level of service and professionalism to every client, no matter how demanding. Although Sinatra was the best tipper of all of them,” he said with a wink.

Bob du Pignac has the following licenses and certifications:

  • A. O. Smith Certified Technician
  • Carrier Certified Technician
  • Gas Sizing Certified Technician
  • Carbon Monoxide Inspection Certified
  • Licensed Mechanical Contractor
  • Licensed HVAC Contractor (Commercial “A”)

Diego Featured in Colorado Springs Business Journal

Diego Lujan, our founder, was recently featured in an article in the Colorado Springs Business Journal in their “Small Business Focus” section.

In it, he shares an anecdote that keeps him going when times get tough in business:

“I bought a little Dodge Dakota for work and … on the first day fully on my own, I was on my way to a customer’s house and the truck broke down,” Lujan recalled. He called the customer and promised he’d still make it out to the site, but that meant renting a truck.

When all was said and done — after the truck rental and the price of repairing a broken flex plate in the Dakota — Lujan had spent $150 of his own money to finish the job.

Thanks to the CSBJ and Zach Hillstrom for the feature story! Diego is a big believe in supporting the local community, and the Colorado Springs Business Journal is a big part of what helps keep our community well informed.
