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

As we start enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems operate, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as components get fatigued from normal operation. And just as the need for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unwelcomed surprise. A global raw materials shortage is disrupting the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re wanting to repair your air conditioning system, we recommend 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 disrupted the supply chain. Many compounding factors plus COVID-19 have led to a global raw materials shortage for many industries, including HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of lots of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has stalled for lots of HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to become scarce. 

How Will the Shortage Impact You? 

With less equipment available than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to big supply networks might experience unpreventable difficulties getting necessary parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to show up. 

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