As we start enjoying warmer temperatures, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems operate, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as machinery gets worn out from everyday operation. And just as the need for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unwelcomed surprise. An international raw materials shortage is causing problems for the HVAC industry, and that means longer wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re wanting to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we recommend doing this immediately. Here’s why.
Why There’s a Shortage?
We all know how difficult the previous year has been, and it's impacted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have resulted in a worldwide raw materials shortage for many industries, including HVAC manufacturers. These important material shortages will impact the accessibility of a lot of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has stalled for lots of HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to dwindle.
How the Shortage Could 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 may experience inevitable difficulties getting necessary parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to come.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking about replacing their HVAC unit to do it shortly to access the best selection and price.
