As we start enjoying warm weather, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems operate, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as parts get fatigued from everyday operation. And just as the need for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unwelcomed surprise. An international raw materials shortage is impacting 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.
What’s Causing the Shortage?
We all know how hard the previous year has been, and it's impacted the supply chain. Several compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have resulted in an international raw materials shortage for multiple companies, including HVAC manufacturers. These important material shortages will impact the ease of access of many household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for lots of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to dwindle.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment in supply than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to large supply networks could experience inevitable problems getting necessary parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to arrive.
That’s why we strongly encourage any homeowner who is considering getting a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the top selection and price.
