As we begin enjoying warm weather, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems operate, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as machinery gets fatigued from routine cooling. And just as the demand for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwanted surprise. A global raw materials shortage is disrupting the HVAC industry, and that means greater 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 difficult the previous year has been, and it's impacted the supply chain. Many compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have created an international raw materials shortage for numerous sectors, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These critical material shortages will impact the availability of lots of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to become depleted.
How the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment in supply than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to big supply networks may have unavoidable issues getting needed parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to come.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking about installing a new HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to enjoy the choice selection and price.
