As we get started enjoying the summer, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll be needing repair or replacement as components get worn down from routine operation. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unwelcomed surprise. An international raw materials shortage is disrupting the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re looking to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we suggest doing this immediately. Here’s why.
What’s Causing the Shortage?
We all know how difficult 2020 was, and it's disrupted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors plus COVID-19 have resulted in an international raw materials shortage for multiple sectors, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These essential material shortages will impact the availability of a lot of household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has stalled for lots of HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to become scarce.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment available than ever before, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to major supply networks may have unavoidable problems getting needed parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to arrive.
That’s why we strongly advise any homeowner who is considering getting a new HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to have access to the choice selection and price.
