How You Might Be Impacted by a HVAC Parts and Equipment Shortage
As we start enjoying warmer temperatures, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as components get worn out from normal operation. And just as the demand for repairs is set to be at its highest around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unpleasant surprise. A global raw materials shortage is impacting the HVAC industry, and that means greater wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re needing to repair your air conditioning system, we recommend doing this soon. Here’s why.
What’s Causing the Shortage?
We all know how difficult the previous year has been, and it's disrupted the supply chain. Many compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have led to a global raw materials shortage for many industries, including HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the ease of access of lots of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become depleted.
How the Shortage Could Impact You
With less equipment in supply than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to big supply networks could have unpreventable difficulties getting needed parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting 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 shortly to access the choice selection and price.
