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 be needing repair or replacement as parts get fatigued from everyday use. And just as the demand for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get 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 wanting to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we advise doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why.
Why There’s a Shortage?
We all know how hard 2020 was, and it's disrupted the supply chain. Several compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have led to a global raw materials shortage for multiple companies, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These critical material shortages will impact the accessibility of lots of household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for lots of HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to dwindle.
How the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment in supply than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC distributors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to large supply networks could have unpreventable difficulties getting required parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to arrive.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking about replacing their HVAC unit to do it shortly to access the top selection and price.
