As we get started enjoying warmer temperatures, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as components get worn out from normal use. And just as the need for repairs is set to be at its highest around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unpleasant surprise. A worldwide 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 advise doing this immediately. Here’s why.
What’s Causing the Shortage?
We all know how hard the previous year has been, and it's impacted the supply chain. Many compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have led to a global raw materials shortage for multiple industries, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These critical material shortages will impact the availability of a lot of household appliances including washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for many HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to become depleted.
How the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment available than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to big supply networks might experience unpreventable difficulties getting necessary parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to arrive.
That’s why we strongly advise any homeowner who is considering replacing their HVAC unit to do it shortly to enjoy the top selection and price.
