As we start enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as components get worn out from routine use. And just as the need 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 needing to repair your air conditioning system, we recommend doing this soon. Here’s why.
We all know how hard 2020 was, and it’s impacted the supply chain. Several compounding factors plus COVID-19 have resulted in an international raw materials shortage for multiple sectors, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of lots of household appliances such as 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 available than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to big supply networks may experience inevitable problems getting required parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to come.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking over getting a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the top selection and price.
