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 demand for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for 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 led to an international raw materials shortage for many industries, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of a lot of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to dwindle.
With less equipment in stock than ever before, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to large supply networks may experience inevitable problems getting needed parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you wait 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 choice selection and price.
