As we get started enjoying the summer, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as components get fatigued from everyday use. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to be at its highest around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwanted surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is disrupting the HVAC industry, and that means greater wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re wanting to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we recommend doing this soon. Here’s why.
Why There’s a Shortage?
We all know how difficult the previous year has been, and it's disrupted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors plus COVID-19 have resulted in a global raw materials shortage for many sectors, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These important material shortages will impact the availability of a lot of household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has stalled for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become depleted.
How the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment in stock than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to major supply networks might have unpreventable problems getting needed parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to show up.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is considering installing a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to get the choice selection and price.
