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 fatigued from routine use. And just as the need for repairs is set to be at its highest around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwanted 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 2020 was, and it’s impacted the supply chain. Several compounding factors plus COVID-19 have resulted in an international raw materials shortage for multiple sectors, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of lots of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for lots of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become depleted.
With less equipment available than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to major supply networks may run into inevitable problems getting needed 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 getting a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the best selection and price.
