HVAC systems play a significant role in creating and maintaining indoor comfort levels, especially during extreme temperatures. However, with global supply chain shortages, the HVAC industry is experiencing shortages, delays, and restrictions in essential parts, materials, and equipment, causing increased service costs and extended service times. As summer stretches on and outdoor temperatures continue to rise, HVAC usage within homes and buildings is increasing, resulting in the need for HVAC maintenance, repairs, and in some instances, replacements. If you need any HVAC services, we suggest doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why.
Global supply chain shortages have significantly impacted the HVAC industry. Many of the parts, equipment, and raw materials necessary for making, repairing, and transporting HVACs are in high demand but in short supply. Unfortunately, consumers needing HVAC repairs and replacements must wait weeks and sometimes months for specific components to arrive before their home’s HVAC can be repaired or replaced. However, to combat these issues, it’s recommended to schedule HVAC services and repairs immediately and continue upkeeping your HVAC system with routine maintenance to ensure it continues functioning efficiently during supply and labor shortages.
Extended Service Times
Along with parts shortages, the HVAC industry is also experiencing a labor shortage, which has resulted in extended service times. However, many HVAC companies, like Crockett Facilities, are working hard to ensure quality customer service and accommodate customers’ needs with a lack of workforce. Communication between HVAC contractors and consumers is critical during these times. It’s also important to schedule HVAC maintenance, repairs, and installations ahead of time to ensure your system is serviced as soon as possible.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment in supply than before, thousands of HVAC distributors are affected. Smaller-scale contractors without access to large supply networks might encounter unprecedented problems getting necessary parts for repairs. You might be without air conditioning for weeks while you wait for parts to be delivered. That’s why any homeowner considering getting a new HVAC unit must do so sooner rather than later to have access to the top selection and price.
Preventative Maintenance is Key
Regular maintenance is your first line of defense against supply chain disruptions and equipment shortages. If you can avoid preventable issues, you’ll be okay for a bit longer. Although some breakdowns can’t be avoided, HVAC preventative maintenance goes a long way to keep your system functioning.
