As we begin enjoying warm weather, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as components get worn down from everyday operation. And just as the need for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unwanted surprise. An international raw materials shortage is causing problems for the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re looking to repair your air conditioning system, we recommend doing this soon. Here’s why.
What’s Causing the Shortage?
We all know how hard the past year has been, and it's taken a toll on the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have created a global raw materials shortage for many sectors, including HVAC manufacturers. These crucial 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 lots of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to dwindle.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment available than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC distributors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to major supply networks may have unavoidable difficulties getting necessary parts for repairs. You could 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 replacing their HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the top selection and price.
