As we start enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as components get worn out from routine use. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unwelcomed surprise. A global raw materials shortage is causing problems 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 this soon. 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 multiple industries, including HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of many household appliances including washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for many HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become scarce.
With less equipment in supply than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC distributors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to large supply networks may experience inevitable problems 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 suggest any homeowner who is considering replacing their HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the top selection and price.
