As we get started 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 be needing repair or replacement as parts get worn out from normal cooling. And just as the need for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwelcomed surprise. An international raw materials shortage is impacting the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re wanting to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we advise doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why.
Why Is There a Shortage?
We all know how challenging the previous year has been, and it's impacted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors plus COVID-19 have resulted in a global raw materials shortage for numerous industries, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the ease of access of many household appliances including washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to become depleted.
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 can’t get access to big supply networks might experience inevitable problems getting necessary parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to come.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is considering replacing their HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to get the choice selection and price.
