As we start enjoying the summer, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as parts get worn out from routine cooling. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to be at its highest around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unpleasant surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is causing issues for the HVAC industry, and that means greater wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re looking to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we suggest doing this immediately. Here’s why.
Why There’s a Shortage?
We all know how hard the past year has been, and it's impacted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have created a worldwide raw materials shortage for numerous sectors, including HVAC manufacturers. These essential material shortages will impact the availability of lots of household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has stalled for lots of HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to dwindle.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment in stock than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to major supply networks may have inevitable issues getting needed parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to be delivered.
That’s why we strongly encourage any homeowner who is thinking over getting a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the choice selection and price.
