As we start enjoying warm weather, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll be needing repair or replacement as components get worn out from everyday use. And just as the demand 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 longer wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re looking to repair your air conditioning system, we advise doing this soon. Here’s why.
What’s Causing the Shortage?
We all know how hard the previous year has been, and it's taken a toll on the supply chain. Several compounding factors plus COVID-19 have led to a worldwide raw materials shortage for many industries, including HVAC manufacturers. These essential 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 stock is beginning to become depleted.
How the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment in supply than ever before, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to major supply networks may have unpreventable problems getting needed parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to come.
That’s why we strongly advise any homeowner who is considering getting a new HVAC unit to do it shortly to enjoy the top selection and price.
