As we start enjoying the summer, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as machinery gets worn out from everyday cooling. And just as the need for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unwanted surprise. An international raw materials shortage is disrupting 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 advise doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why.
Why There’s a Shortage?
We all know how difficult the previous year has been, and it's impacted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors plus COVID-19 have resulted in an international raw materials shortage for numerous sectors, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These important 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 stock is beginning to dwindle.
Why the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment in supply than ever before, more than 125,000 HVAC distributors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to major supply networks might have unavoidable problems getting necessary parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to show up.
That’s why we strongly encourage any homeowner who is thinking over replacing their HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to enjoy the choice selection and price.
