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

As we start enjoying the summer, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems operate, the sooner they’ll require repair or replacement as components get fatigued from routine cooling. And just as the need for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unwanted surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is disrupting the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re looking to repair your air conditioning system, we recommend doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why. 

Why There’s a Shortage? 

We all know how difficult the past year has been, and it’s impacted the supply chain. Many compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have created a worldwide raw materials shortage for numerous companies, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These essential material shortages will impact the availability of many household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has ceased for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become scarce. 

Why the Shortage Could 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 may experience unavoidable problems getting necessary parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to come. 

That’s why we strongly suggest any homeowner who is thinking about replacing their HVAC unit to do it soon rather than waiting until later in the summer to have access to the choice selection and price.
