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

As we get started enjoying summertime, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as machinery gets fatigued from routine operation. And just as the demand for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unwelcomed surprise. An international raw materials shortage is disrupting the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re needing to repair your air conditioning system, we advise doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why. 

What’s Causing the Shortage? 

We all know how difficult 2020 was, and it’s taken a toll on the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have resulted in an international raw materials shortage for numerous industries, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These crucial material shortages will impact the availability of a lot of household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for many HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to dwindle. 

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 big supply networks might have unpreventable problems getting needed parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to arrive. 

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