How an HVAC Parts and Equipment Shortage Could Affect Your Comfort This Summer

As we get started enjoying warm weather, 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 machinery gets worn down from everyday cooling. And just as the demand for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unwanted surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is impacting the HVAC industry, and that means longer wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re wanting to repair your air conditioning system, we suggest doing this soon. Here’s why.

Why There’s a Shortage?

We all know how hard the previous year has been, and it's taken a toll on the supply chain. Several compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have resulted in a worldwide raw materials shortage for multiple sectors, including HVAC manufacturers. These critical material shortages will impact the ease of access of lots of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for many HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to become scarce.

How Will the Shortage Impact You?

With less equipment available than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC distributors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who can’t get access to major supply networks might have unpreventable difficulties getting required parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to come.

That’s why we strongly advise any homeowner who is thinking about installing a new HVAC unit to do it quickly to enjoy the choice selection and price.
