As we start enjoying warm weather, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as parts get worn down from normal operation. 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 issues for the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re needing to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we suggest doing this immediately. Here’s why.
Why Is There a Shortage?
We all know how hard 2020 was, and it's impacted the supply chain. Many compounding factors plus COVID-19 have led to an international raw materials shortage for numerous industries, including HVAC manufacturers. These important material shortages will impact the ease of access 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 stock than ever before, more than 125,000 HVAC distributors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to major supply networks could have unpreventable difficulties getting required parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to show up.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking over replacing their HVAC unit to do it shortly to get the best selection and price.
