As we start enjoying warmer temperatures, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll be needing repair or replacement as machinery gets fatigued from routine operation. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get 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 needing to repair your air conditioning system, we advise doing this immediately. Here’s why.
What’s Causing the Shortage?
We all know how difficult the past year has been, and it's disrupted the supply chain. Many compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have resulted in a global raw materials shortage for numerous companies, including HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of many household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has stalled for many 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 large supply networks could experience unpreventable difficulties getting necessary parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to be delivered.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking about replacing their HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to enjoy the choice selection and price.
