As we begin enjoying warm weather, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as machinery gets worn out from everyday use. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwelcomed surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is causing problems for the HVAC industry, and that means longer wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re wanting to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we recommend doing this soon. Here’s why.
What’s Causing the Shortage?
We all know how hard 2020 was, and it's disrupted the supply chain. Many compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have led to a worldwide raw materials shortage for many sectors, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These important material shortages will impact the availability of lots of household appliances including washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for lots of HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to become scarce.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment in supply than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC distributors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to major supply networks may experience unpreventable problems getting required parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to come.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking about getting a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to enjoy the choice selection and price.
