As we start enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems cool, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as components get worn down from routine use. And just as the need for repairs is set to peak 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 wanting to repair your air conditioning system, we advise 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 a worldwide raw materials shortage for numerous industries, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the accessibility of lots of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for lots of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to dwindle.
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 large supply networks may experience inevitable problems getting required 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 over installing a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to access the top selection and price.
