As we get started enjoying the summer, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as components get worn down from normal use. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwanted surprise. An international raw materials shortage is causing issues for the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re needing to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we recommend doing this immediately. Here’s why.
Why Is There a Shortage?
We all know how difficult the previous year has been, and it's disrupted the supply chain. Many compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have led to a worldwide raw materials shortage for numerous companies, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of lots of household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to become depleted.
Why the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment in stock than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to large supply networks might run into unavoidable difficulties getting required parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to arrive.
That’s why we strongly advise any homeowner who is thinking about installing a new HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to enjoy the top selection and price.
