Trade Industries Slow Due to Covid Fears

While emergency calls are still happening; HVAC contractors in some areas are not working seasonal scheduled maintenance and homeowners are putting off non-emergency repairs and replacements.

See the ‘phones are ringing for HVAC techs’.

We might think with everyone home and HVAC systems getting a harder than typical workout, there would be more HVAC calls. Timing is probably part of the reason why it’s not happening. We’re in the beginning or midst of shoulder season, depending on your area of the country and a lot of folks with underlying health issues are deciding to open their windows and doors and not invite their neighborhood HVAC tech into their home.

This change is not only impacting service calls and scheduled maintenance but also planned replacements. This could very well make a substantial impact on the geothermal heat pump market as a good number of replacements that were planned to take advantage of the geothermal heat pump tax credit may be lost altogether.

We won’t know which way this is going to go until we’re all back to our old gloveless, facemaskless selves and shaking hands with our neighbors.

Stay healthy and stay sanitized!
