Facility Executive: COVID-19: HVACR Organizations Promote Essential Status

We're following this effort closely, and encouraged to see industry organizations lobbying on behalf of businesses and workers in the HVACR and home services sectors, asking state and local governments to classify HVACR and related services as "essential" during the implementation of other policies aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to post updates on this and other efforts to support home services businesses so they can continue to support their customers during this time.
