As we begin enjoying warmer temperatures, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems operate, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as components get worn down from normal use. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unwelcomed surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is disrupting 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 recommend doing this immediately. Here’s why.
Why There’s a Shortage?
We all know how difficult 2020 was, and it's impacted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have led to a global raw materials shortage for multiple industries, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These important material shortages will impact the availability of lots of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to become scarce.
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 can’t get access to large supply networks may have unavoidable problems 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 advise any homeowner who is thinking over replacing their HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the best selection and price.
