As we start enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as components get fatigued from routine use. And just as the need for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unwelcomed surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is causing problems for the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re looking to repair your air conditioning system, we suggest doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why.
We all know how hard the previous year has been, and it’s impacted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors plus COVID-19 have created an international raw materials shortage for many companies, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of lots of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for lots of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become depleted.
With less equipment in stock than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to large supply networks may experience inevitable problems getting needed parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to come.
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.
