As we start enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as components get worn out from routine use. And just as the need for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwelcomed 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 needing to repair your air conditioning system, we suggest doing this soon. Here’s why.
We all know how hard the previous year has been, and it’s impacted the supply chain. Several compounding factors plus COVID-19 have created an international raw materials shortage for many industries, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of a lot of household appliances including washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become depleted.
With less equipment available than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to big supply networks may experience inevitable problems getting needed parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to come.
That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is considering getting a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the top selection and price.
