Response to Miguelito Loveless (Original post)

7. Heat pumps have been hard to get recently.

Many of the components are made in China, South Korea, and Japan.

Europe, and the United Kingdom especially, have been paying people to replace their gas water heaters, furnaces, and boilers with heat pumps, which has increased demand.

California is discouraging gas appliances in new construction and some of the more efficient heat pumps are largely back-ordered.

U.S. manufacturers tend to specialize in larger commercial units. Most of the smaller heat pumps sold here, even those "made in the U.S.A." use foreign components.
