How an HVAC Parts and Equipment Shortage Might Impact You Parts and Equipment

As we begin enjoying warm weather, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems operate, the sooner they’ll be needing repair or replacement as parts get worn out from normal cooling. And just as the demand for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unwelcomed surprise. An international 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 your air conditioning system, we advise doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why. 

What’s Causing the Shortage? 

We all know how difficult 2020 was, and it’s disrupted the supply chain. Several compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have resulted in a global raw materials shortage for many companies, including HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the availability of many household appliances including 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 available than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to major supply networks may have unpreventable issues getting necessary parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to be delivered. 

That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking about replacing their HVAC unit to do it shortly to enjoy the best selection and price.
