As we start enjoying warmer temperatures, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll be needing repair or replacement as components get fatigued from normal cooling. And just as the demand for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unpleasant surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is impacting the HVAC industry, and that means greater wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re looking to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we suggest doing this soon. Here’s why.
Why There’s a Shortage?
We all know how challenging 2020 was, and it's impacted the supply chain. Several compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have led to a global raw materials shortage for numerous industries, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These critical material shortages will impact the accessibility of a lot of household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for many HVAC manufacturers and inventories are beginning to become scarce.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment in supply than ever before, more than 125,000 HVAC distributors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to large supply networks could run into inevitable issues getting needed parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to be delivered.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking over getting a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the choice selection and price.
