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 be at its highest around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unwanted surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is causing problems for 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 advise doing this immediately. 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 resulted in an international raw materials shortage for many companies, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of lots of household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for lots of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become scarce.
With less equipment in stock than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to major supply networks may have unpreventable problems getting necessary 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 thinking about getting a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the best selection and price.
