As we start enjoying warm weather, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as parts get fatigued from everyday cooling. And just as the demand 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 longer wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re looking to repair your air conditioning system, we suggest doing this soon. Here’s why.
Why Is There a Shortage?
We all know how difficult the past year has been, and it's taken a toll on the supply chain. Several compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have created a worldwide raw materials shortage for many companies, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These critical material shortages will impact the ease of access of lots of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for many HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become scarce.
Why the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment available than ever before, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to large supply networks may experience unavoidable problems getting needed parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to show up.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking over replacing their HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to access the best selection and price.
