How an HVAC Parts and Equipment Shortage Might Impact You

As we start enjoying warmer temperatures, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us cool. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll need repair or replacement as machinery gets worn down from everyday operation. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to culminate around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to get an unpleasant surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is causing problems for the HVAC industry, and that means longer wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re looking to repair or replace your air conditioning system, we recommend doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why.

Why Is There a Shortage?

We all know how challenging the previous year has been, and it's disrupted the supply chain. Multiple compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have created an international raw materials shortage for many companies, which involves HVAC manufacturers. These critical material shortages will impact the accessibility of a lot of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has stalled for lots of HVAC manufacturers and warehouses are beginning to become depleted.

Why the Shortage Could Impact You

With less equipment in stock than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC companies will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors without access to big supply networks may have unpreventable problems getting required parts for repairs. You might be without A/C for weeks while you wait for parts to arrive.

That’s why we strongly advise any homeowner who is considering replacing their HVAC unit to do it quickly to get the best selection and price.
