As we begin enjoying summertime, 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 machinery gets worn down from everyday cooling. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unwanted surprise. An international raw materials shortage is impacting the HVAC industry, and that means longer wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re looking to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we advise doing this immediately. Here’s why.
Why Is There a Shortage?
We all know how difficult the previous year has been, and it's impacted the supply chain. Several compounding factors plus COVID-19 have resulted in an international raw materials shortage for many sectors, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the ease of access of lots of household appliances including washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has stalled for lots of HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to become depleted.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment in stock than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to major supply networks might have inevitable problems getting required parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to be delivered.
That’s why we strongly encourage any homeowner who is thinking about getting a new HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to enjoy the top selection and price.
