As we get started enjoying warm weather, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as parts get fatigued from routine use. And just as the need for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwanted surprise. A global raw materials shortage is causing problems for the HVAC industry, and that means greater 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 difficult the past year has been, and it's impacted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors plus COVID-19 have created a worldwide raw materials shortage for numerous companies, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These essential material shortages will impact the availability of lots of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has stalled for lots of HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to become scarce.
Why the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment available than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC distributors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to major supply networks may have unpreventable problems getting necessary parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to show up.
That’s why we strongly encourage any homeowner who is considering replacing their HVAC unit to do it shortly to enjoy the top selection and price.
