As we get started enjoying the summer, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll be needing repair or replacement as machinery gets worn out from normal use. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwelcomed surprise. A global 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 or replace your air conditioning system, we suggest doing this soon. Here’s why.
Why Is There a Shortage?
We all know how challenging the past year has been, and it's impacted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors plus COVID-19 have resulted in a global raw materials shortage for multiple sectors, including HVAC manufacturers. These important material shortages will impact the accessibility of many household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become scarce.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment available than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to big supply networks may have inevitable problems getting needed parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to arrive.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking over replacing their HVAC unit to do it shortly to access the choice selection and price.
