As we begin enjoying the summer, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems operate, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as parts 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 unpleasant surprise. A global 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 advise doing this soon. Here’s why.
What’s Causing the Shortage?
We all know how challenging the previous year has been, and it's taken a toll on the supply chain. Many compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have created a worldwide raw materials shortage for numerous industries, 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 warehouses are beginning to become depleted.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment in stock 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 may have inevitable issues getting required parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to arrive.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking about installing a new HVAC unit to do it shortly to have access to the choice selection and price.
