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 need repair or replacement as components get fatigued from everyday cooling. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwanted surprise. An international raw materials shortage is causing issues for the HVAC industry, and that means greater wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re needing to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we suggest doing this soon. Here’s why.
Why There’s a Shortage?
We all know how challenging 2020 was, and it's taken a toll on the supply chain. Several compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have created a global raw materials shortage for numerous industries, including HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the ease of access of a lot of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has stalled for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to dwindle.
Why the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment in supply than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to big supply networks might have inevitable issues getting needed parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to be delivered.
That’s why we strongly advise any homeowner who is considering installing a new HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to have access to the choice selection and price.
