As we get started enjoying warm weather, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll be needing repair or replacement as components get worn out from routine use. 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 unwelcomed surprise. An international raw materials shortage is impacting 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 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 on top of COVID-19 have led to a worldwide raw materials shortage for multiple sectors, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These important material shortages will impact the availability of many household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for lots of HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to become scarce.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment in stock than ever before, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to big supply networks could run into inevitable issues getting needed parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to show up.
That’s why we strongly advise any homeowner who is considering getting a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the best selection and price.
