As we start enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as parts get worn down from everyday operation. And just as the demand for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unpleasant surprise. An international raw materials shortage is causing problems for the HVAC industry, and that means extended 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 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 global raw materials shortage for numerous industries, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These critical material shortages will impact the accessibility of many household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for lots of HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to become depleted.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment available than ever before, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to large supply networks may have inevitable difficulties getting needed parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to arrive.
That’s why we strongly encourage any homeowner who is thinking over replacing their HVAC unit to do it shortly to have access to the best selection and price.
