How an HVAC Parts and Equipment Shortage Might Affect You Parts and Equipment

As we get started enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as parts get worn down from routine use. And just as the need for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unwelcomed surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is causing issues for 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 recommend doing this soon. Here’s why. 

Why Is There a Shortage? 

We all know how difficult the previous year has been, and it’s disrupted the supply chain. Several compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have led to a worldwide raw materials shortage for numerous companies, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the availability of a lot of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has stalled for lots of HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to become depleted. 

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 big supply networks may run into inevitable difficulties getting needed parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to show up. 

That’s why we strongly encourage any homeowner who is thinking over getting a new HVAC unit to do it shortly to have access to the top selection and price.
