Stay informed: Parts and Equipment are Limited, and Prices are Spiking

Remember Spring of 2020 when you couldn’t find a roll of toilet paper anywhere? Have you tried to order a refrigerator or washer/dryer lately? Still missing Lysol on store shelves? The same thing is happening in the HVAC supply chain!

Watch the video of Good Morning America unpacking this shortage resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic here. As the weather gets hotter and hotter, the demand for ACs, be they new or a replacement, increases drastically. And facing factors such as COVID production delays, a worldwide shortage of semiconductors, the Texas freeze, and an unprecedented demand for copper and plastic piping supplies, parts and equipment to suit your HVAC needs are becoming harder and harder to find.

We urge you not to put off the decision making process if you are thinking about a replacement or upgrade to your HVAC systems as manufacturers are low on equipment and parts choices! In addition, consider scheduling a clean and check sooner rather than later to make sure that your system will last you the summer, and you won’t be left out in the heat.
