As we get started enjoying warmer temperatures, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems operate, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as components get worn down from normal operation. And just as the need for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unwanted surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is impacting the HVAC industry, and that means greater wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re looking to repair your air conditioning system, we advise doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why.
What’s Causing the Shortage?
We all know how hard 2020 was, and it's taken a toll on the supply chain. Many compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have led to an international raw materials shortage for multiple sectors, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These essential material shortages will impact the ease of access of lots of household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become depleted.
How the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment available than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to big supply networks may run into unavoidable problems getting needed parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to arrive.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking about getting a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the top selection and price.
