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

As we get started 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 components get worn down from everyday use. And just as the demand for repairs is set to be at its highest around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unwelcomed surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is causing issues for the HVAC industry, and that means longer wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re looking to repair your air conditioning system, we advise doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why. 

Why There’s a Shortage? 

We all know how challenging the past year has been, and it’s disrupted the supply chain. Several compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have led to an international raw materials shortage for numerous companies, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These essential material shortages will impact the ease of access of lots of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and inventories 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 experience unavoidable difficulties getting necessary parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to show up. 

That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking over replacing their HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to access the top selection and price.
