How an HVAC Parts and Equipment Shortage Could Cause Issues for You Parts and Equipment

As we get started enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems operate, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as parts get worn out from normal cooling. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to peak 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 greater wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re wanting to repair your air conditioning system, we advise doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why. 

What’s Causing the Shortage? 

We all know how hard the past year has been, and it’s impacted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors plus COVID-19 have led to a global raw materials shortage for multiple companies, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These essential material shortages will impact the accessibility of many household appliances including washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for many HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to become depleted. 

How Will the Shortage Impact You? 

With less equipment in supply than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to large supply networks may experience unavoidable problems getting needed parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to show up. 

That’s why we strongly encourage any homeowner who is thinking about getting a new HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to enjoy the top selection and price.
