As we start enjoying summertime, 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 components get worn down from routine use. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unwelcomed surprise. An international raw materials shortage is causing problems for the HVAC industry, and that means extended 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.
We all know how hard 2020 was, and it’s impacted the supply chain. Several compounding factors plus COVID-19 have resulted in a worldwide raw materials shortage for multiple companies, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of a lot of household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become scarce.
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 may experience inevitable problems getting required parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you wait on 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.
