As we begin enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll be needing repair or replacement as components get worn out from normal use. And just as the need for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwanted surprise. A global raw materials shortage is impacting 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.
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 on top of COVID-19 have led to a global raw materials shortage for multiple companies, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These critical material shortages will impact the accessibility of many household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has stalled for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to dwindle.
Why the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment available than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to major supply networks could experience unavoidable issues getting necessary 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 considering replacing their HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the top selection and price.
