As we begin enjoying warm weather, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as components get worn down from normal use. And just as the demand for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unwanted surprise. A global raw materials shortage is causing issues for the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re needing to repair your air conditioning system, we recommend doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why.
Why There’s a Shortage?
We all know how difficult the past year has been, and it's impacted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have resulted in an international raw materials shortage for numerous companies, including HVAC manufacturers. These critical material shortages will impact the availability of many household appliances including washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for many HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to dwindle.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment in supply than ever before, more than 125,000 HVAC distributors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to big supply networks may have unavoidable problems getting needed parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to arrive.
That’s why we strongly encourage any homeowner who is thinking over getting a new HVAC unit to do it shortly to access the best selection and price.
