As we start enjoying the summer, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems operate, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as parts get worn down from routine operation. And just as the demand for repairs is set to be at its highest around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unwanted surprise. A global raw materials shortage is disrupting the HVAC industry, and that means longer wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re looking 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 challenging 2020 was, and it's impacted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have created an international raw materials shortage for many industries, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These important material shortages will impact the availability of many household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for lots of HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to become depleted.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment in supply than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC distributors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to large supply networks may experience unpreventable problems getting necessary parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to come.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is considering getting a new HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to access the top selection and price.
