As we start enjoying the summer, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as parts get fatigued from everyday use. And just as the demand for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unpleasant 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 soon. Here’s why.
What’s Causing the Shortage?
We all know how challenging the past year has been, and it's impacted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors plus COVID-19 have led to a global raw materials shortage for multiple industries, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of a lot of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to become depleted.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment available than ever before, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to large supply networks may have inevitable issues getting necessary parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to come.
That’s why we strongly encourage any homeowner who is thinking about installing a new HVAC unit to do it shortly to get the top selection and price.
