As we get started enjoying warmer temperatures, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems operate, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as components get worn down from routine cooling. 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 causing problems for the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re needing to repair your air conditioning system, we advise doing this soon. Here’s why.
Why Is There a Shortage?
We all know how difficult the previous year has been, and it's impacted the supply chain. Many compounding factors plus COVID-19 have led to a global raw materials shortage for many companies, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the ease of access of lots of household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for lots of HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to become scarce.
How the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment in supply than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to major supply networks may have unpreventable issues getting needed parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to arrive.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking about replacing their HVAC unit to do it quickly to have access to the choice selection and price.
