My company has been experiencing a long wait for HVAC products like furnaces, air conditioners, and thermostats.
The problem is due to HVAC products being held up at the shipping distributor.
Several employees at the shipping distributor have come down with the coronavirus and they are currently running a single shift instead of three. It means everything is backed up and production will be slower for a while. The wait for products like heat pumps, AC machines, and air purifiers are twice as long as usual. My wife and I have been waiting a week for our new air conditioner. We ordered the new cooling equipment a week ago, right before the coronavirus outbreak. All of the items en route to delivery were sent back to the distributor for sanitization. I’m thankful we ordered the new cooling equipment now instead of waiting until the old machine was done. We still have air conditioning in our home, so the unusually long wait time isn’t a big deal. My neighbor uses the same HVAC company. She has been waiting three weeks for an air purifier to arrive. They ordered the air purification equipment shortly after the start of quarantine. I wonder if the air purifier will arrive before the threat of the virus has completed its cycle. We can’t complain about much, because there are millions of workers pouting their life on the line to keep the country running .These brave souls should be receiving a wage increase for their hard work and dedication. They are just as important as the nurses, doctors, and healthcare professionals on the front line.
