How an HVAC Parts and Equipment Shortage Could Cause Issues for You

As we start enjoying warmer temperatures, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfy. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems operate, the sooner they’ll be needing repair or replacement as components get fatigued from normal use. And just as the need for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unwanted surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is causing issues for 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 immediately. Here’s why.

Why There’s a Shortage?

We all know how hard 2020 was, and it's taken a toll on the supply chain. Many compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have resulted in a worldwide raw materials shortage for multiple industries, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These critical material shortages will impact the accessibility of a lot of household appliances like washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has slowed for lots of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become scarce.

How Will the Shortage 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 large supply networks might experience unpreventable problems getting required parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you wait 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 get the best selection and price.
