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

As we get started enjoying warm weather, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems run, the sooner they’ll be needing repair or replacement as machinery gets worn down from routine cooling. And just as the pressure for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unwelcomed surprise. An international raw materials shortage is impacting the HVAC industry, and that means greater wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re needing to repair your air conditioning system, we advise doing this soon. Here’s why. 

Why There’s a Shortage? 

We all know how difficult 2020 was, and it’s disrupted the supply chain. Several compounding factors on top of COVID-19 have resulted in a worldwide raw materials shortage for multiple sectors, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These essential material shortages will impact the ease of access of many household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has stalled for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become depleted. 

How Will the Shortage Impact You? 

With less equipment in stock than in previous years, more than 125,000 HVAC distributors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to large supply networks might experience unpreventable issues getting required parts for repairs. You could be without A/C for weeks while you wait on parts to come. 

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