As we begin 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 components get worn out 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 unwelcomed surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is impacting the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re needing to repair your air conditioning system, we advise doing this soon. Here’s why.
Why There’s a Shortage?
We all know how hard the previous year has been, and it's impacted the supply chain. Many compounding factors plus COVID-19 have resulted in a global raw materials shortage for multiple companies, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of lots of household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for lots of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to dwindle.
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 without access to major supply networks might run into unpreventable problems 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 suggest any homeowner who is considering getting a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the top selection and price.
