As we start enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as components get worn down from routine use. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unwelcomed surprise. A global raw materials shortage is causing problems for the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re wanting to repair your air conditioning system, we advise doing this immediately. Here’s why.
We all know how hard the past year has been, and it’s impacted the supply chain. Several compounding factors plus COVID-19 have created a global raw materials shortage for many industries, including HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of lots of household appliances including washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for lots of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become depleted.
With less equipment in stock than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to large supply networks may experience unpreventable problems getting needed parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to come.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking over replacing their HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the choice selection and price.
