As we get started enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll be needing repair or replacement as components get worn out from everyday operation. And just as the demand for repairs is set to be at its highest around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unpleasant surprise. A global raw materials shortage is causing issues for the HVAC industry, and that means greater wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re needing to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we recommend doing this soon. Here’s why.
What’s Causing the Shortage?
We all know how hard the previous year has been, and it's taken a toll on the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have led to a global raw materials shortage for multiple industries, including HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of a lot of household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for lots of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become depleted.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment in stock than ever before, more than 125,000 HVAC distributors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to major supply networks may run into inevitable issues getting required parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to arrive.
That’s why we strongly encourage any homeowner who is thinking about installing a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to get the best selection and price.
