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

As we begin enjoying warm weather, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems operate, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as parts get worn out from routine cooling. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are in for an unwelcomed surprise. An international raw materials shortage is impacting 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. 

What’s Causing the Shortage? 

We all know how difficult the past year has been, and it’s disrupted the supply chain. Several compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have led to a global raw materials shortage for numerous sectors, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These critical material shortages will impact the accessibility of lots of household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for lots of HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to dwindle. 

How Will the Shortage Impact You? 

With less equipment in stock than ever before, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to large supply networks might experience inevitable problems getting needed parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to arrive. 

That’s why we strongly advise any homeowner who is thinking about getting a new HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to access the best selection and price.
