As we get started enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as machinery gets worn down from routine operation. And just as the need for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwanted surprise. An international raw materials shortage is causing issues for the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re needing to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we suggest doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why.
Why There’s a Shortage?
We all know how challenging the previous year has been, and it's disrupted the supply chain. Several compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have resulted in a worldwide raw materials shortage for multiple sectors, including 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 ceased for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become scarce.
How the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment available than ever before, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to big supply networks might experience unpreventable issues getting needed parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to be delivered.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking about installing a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to have access to the top selection and price.
