As we start enjoying the summer, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as components get worn down from routine use. And just as the demand for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unwelcomed surprise. An international raw materials shortage is disrupting the HVAC industry, and that means longer wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re wanting to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we advise doing this immediately. Here’s why.
What’s Causing the Shortage?
We all know how challenging the previous year has been, and it's disrupted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have resulted in a global raw materials shortage for many companies, 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 inventories are beginning to become scarce.
Why the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment in supply than ever before, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to large supply networks may have unavoidable problems getting necessary parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to be delivered.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking about installing a new HVAC unit to do it shortly to enjoy the top selection and price.
