As we start 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 need repair or replacement as machinery gets fatigued from normal operation. And just as the need for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unpleasant 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 looking to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we recommend doing this immediately. Here’s why.
Why Is There a Shortage?
We all know how challenging the past year has been, and it's disrupted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have led to an international raw materials shortage for many companies, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the ease of access of lots of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to become scarce.
How the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment in supply than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to big supply networks could have unpreventable issues getting required parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to come.
That’s why we strongly advise any homeowner who is thinking about getting a new HVAC unit to do it shortly to enjoy the choice selection and price.
