As we get started enjoying the summer, 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 parts get worn out from everyday cooling. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwelcomed surprise. An international raw materials shortage is causing issues 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 recommend doing this immediately. Here’s why.
Why Is There a Shortage?
We all know how difficult 2020 was, and it's impacted the supply chain. Several compounding factors plus COVID-19 have created an international raw materials shortage for many sectors, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These essential material shortages will impact the availability of a lot of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for many HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become scarce.
How the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment in stock than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to big supply networks may experience inevitable 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 suggest any homeowner who is considering replacing their HVAC unit to do it shortly to access the choice selection and price.
