How an HVAC Parts and Equipment Shortage Could Impact You Parts and Equipment

As we get started enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as components get worn out from routine use. And just as the pressure 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 causing issues for the HVAC industry, and that means greater wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re needing to repair your air conditioning system, we advise doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why. 

Why There’s a Shortage? 

We all know how hard the past year has been, and it’s taken a toll on the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have led to an international raw materials shortage for many sectors, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These important material shortages will impact the ease of access of a lot of household appliances including washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for many HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to dwindle. 

How the Shortage Could Impact You 

With less equipment in supply than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to big supply networks might run into unpreventable difficulties getting necessary parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to show up. 

That’s why we strongly advise any homeowner who is considering getting a new HVAC unit to do it shortly to get the choice selection and price.
