How an HVAC Parts and Equipment Shortage Could Affect You Parts and Equipment

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 components get worn down from routine use. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwelcomed surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is causing problems for the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re wanting to repair your air conditioning system, we suggest doing this immediately. Here’s why. 

Why There’s a Shortage? 

We all know how challenging the past year has been, and it’s impacted the supply chain. Several compounding factors plus COVID-19 have created an international raw materials shortage for many sectors, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of lots of household appliances including washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for lots of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become scarce. 

How the Shortage Could Impact You 

With less equipment in stock than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to major supply networks may run into inevitable problems getting needed parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you wait on 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 top selection and price.
