As we start enjoying warmer temperatures, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as components get worn down from normal operation. And just as the need for repairs is set to be at its highest around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unwanted surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is impacting the HVAC industry, and that means longer wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re wanting to repair your air conditioning system, we suggest doing this soon. Here’s why.
What’s Causing the Shortage?
We all know how difficult 2020 was, and it's disrupted the supply chain. Many compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have created an international raw materials shortage for numerous companies, including HVAC manufacturers. These critical material shortages will impact the accessibility of many household appliances including washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become scarce.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment in supply than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to major supply networks might have unpreventable problems getting required parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to come.
That’s why we strongly advise any homeowner who is considering getting a new HVAC unit to do it shortly to enjoy the best selection and price.
