As we begin 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 require repair or replacement as components get worn out from routine cooling. And just as the demand for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwelcomed surprise. A global raw materials shortage is impacting the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re wanting to repair your air conditioning system, we advise doing this soon. Here’s why.
Why There’s a Shortage?
We all know how difficult the past year has been, and it's impacted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors plus COVID-19 have resulted in a worldwide raw materials shortage for many companies, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These essential material shortages will impact the availability 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 dwindle.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment in supply than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to large supply networks may run into unpreventable problems getting necessary parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to show up.
That’s why we strongly advise 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 choice selection and price.
