How an HVAC Parts and Equipment Shortage Could Impact You Parts and Equipment

As we begin enjoying summertime, 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 routine use. And just as the demand for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unwelcomed surprise. An international raw materials shortage is disrupting the HVAC industry, and that means greater 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. 

Why Is There a Shortage? 

We all know how difficult the previous year has been, and it’s taken a toll on the supply chain. Several compounding factors plus COVID-19 have led to a worldwide raw materials shortage for many industries, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These important material shortages will impact the availability of a lot of household appliances including washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for lots of HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to become scarce. 

Why the Shortage Could Impact You 

With less equipment available than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to major supply networks might run into unpreventable issues getting necessary parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to show up. 

That’s why we strongly encourage any homeowner who is considering replacing their HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to enjoy the best selection and price.
