How an HVAC Parts and Equipment Shortage May Impact You Parts and Equipment

As we start enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as machinery gets worn down from normal cooling. And just as the demand for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unpleasant surprise. A global raw materials shortage is impacting the HVAC industry, and that means longer wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re needing to repair your air conditioning system, we suggest doing this soon. Here’s why. 

Why There’s a Shortage? 

We all know how challenging the past year has been, and it’s impacted the supply chain. Several compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have led to an international raw materials shortage for many companies, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These critical material shortages will impact the availability of many household appliances including washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for lots of HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to dwindle. 

How the Shortage Could Impact You 

With less equipment available than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC distributors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to large supply networks may run into inevitable difficulties getting necessary parts for repairs. You could 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 over getting a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to have access to the top selection and price.
