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 machinery gets worn out from routine cooling. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unwanted surprise. An international raw materials shortage is causing problems for the HVAC industry, and that means longer wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re wanting to repair your air conditioning system, we recommend doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why.
What’s Causing the Shortage?
We all know how hard the past year has been, and it's impacted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have led to an international raw materials shortage for numerous 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 slowed for many HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to become depleted.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment in supply than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to big supply networks could experience unavoidable problems 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 advise any homeowner who is thinking about replacing their HVAC unit to do it shortly to enjoy the top selection and price.
