Heating Equipment Makers Ramp Up Production to Fill Post-Sandy Surge

HVAC producers in the United States have upped production to meet a surge in demand after Hurricane Sandy. The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute said its members increased production of residential and light commercial boilers, furnaces, and heat pumps.

In a typical season, much of this equipment is already produced and has been shipped to distributors. Manufacturers and parts suppliers this year, AHRI said, have quickly ramped production back up again to meet an unexpected and unprecedented need for heating equipment.

"Manufacturers could not have predicted this spike in demand during what is typically a slower manufacturing period for heating products," pointed out AHRI President and CEO Stephen Yurek. "But they are making every effort to provide these products to consumers and small businesses as quickly as possible so their lives can begin to return to normal," he said.

"We understand the importance of getting heat back on in people's homes all across the most hard-hit areas in New York and New Jersey, and we are doing everything we can to accelerate our manufacturing to meet such a significant spike in demand," one manufacturer told AHRI. "We are shipping every piece of equipment we can manufacture as quickly as possible."
