As we begin enjoying the summer, 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 parts get worn down from everyday cooling. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unwelcomed surprise. An international raw materials shortage is disrupting the HVAC industry, and that means greater wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re wanting to repair your air conditioning system, we suggest doing this soon. Here’s why.
Why There’s a Shortage?
We all know how challenging the previous year has been, and it's taken a toll on the supply chain. Several compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have led to a global raw materials shortage for many companies, including HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of a lot of household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for many HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to dwindle.
How the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment in supply than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to major supply networks could experience inevitable problems getting necessary parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to be delivered.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking about replacing their HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to enjoy the choice selection and price.
