As we start enjoying warmer temperatures, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll be needing repair or replacement as components get fatigued from routine cooling. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unpleasant surprise. An international raw materials shortage is disrupting the HVAC industry, and that means longer wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re wanting to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we recommend doing this immediately. Here’s why.
Why Is There a Shortage?
We all know how challenging the past year has been, and it's taken a toll on the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors plus COVID-19 have created a global raw materials shortage for numerous industries, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the ease of access of lots of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to dwindle.
Why the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment in stock than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to big supply networks might have unpreventable issues getting necessary parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to show up.
That’s why we strongly encourage any homeowner who is thinking over replacing their HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to enjoy the top selection and price.
