As we start enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as parts get worn out from routine use. And just as the need for repairs is set to be at its highest around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unwelcomed surprise. An international raw materials shortage is causing problems for the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re needing to repair your air conditioning system, we suggest doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why.
We all know how hard the previous year has been, and it’s impacted the supply chain. Several compounding factors plus COVID-19 have resulted in a worldwide raw materials shortage for many sectors, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of a lot of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to dwindle.
With less equipment in stock than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC distributors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to big supply networks may experience inevitable problems getting necessary parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to come.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is considering getting a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the best selection and price.
