As we get started enjoying warmer temperatures, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as parts get worn out from normal operation. And just as the demand for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get 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 looking to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we recommend doing this soon. Here’s why.
Why Is There a Shortage?
We all know how hard the past year has been, and it's taken a toll on the supply chain. Several compounding factors plus COVID-19 have resulted in a global raw materials shortage for multiple companies, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These important material shortages will impact the availability of lots of household appliances including washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has stalled for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to become scarce.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment in supply than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to major supply networks could have inevitable issues getting needed parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to show up.
That’s why we strongly encourage any homeowner who is thinking about replacing their HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to have access to the best selection and price.
