As we start enjoying warm weather, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems operate, the sooner they’ll be needing repair or replacement as components get worn down from routine cooling. And just as the demand for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwelcomed surprise. A global raw materials shortage is causing issues 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 immediately. Here’s why.
Why There’s a Shortage?
We all know how hard 2020 was, and it's taken a toll on the supply chain. Many compounding factors plus COVID-19 have led to a global raw materials shortage for multiple sectors, including 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 depleted.
How the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment in stock than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC distributors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to big supply networks could have inevitable problems getting needed parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to come.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking over installing a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the top selection and price.
