What Is Causing Equipment Shortages?
Various industries across the board, from automotive to construction, are currently experiencing shortages here in Mukwonago and throughout the country. Just as there are fewer cars available for purchase on the dealership lot, there are fewer accessible HVAC products and equipment.
HVAC manufacturing companies and distributors are facing equipment shortages for a variety of reasons, including:
- Initial or current slowed production related to the pandemic
- Limited number of available workers
- Supply chain issues
Supply simply cannot keep up with the increased demand due to the HVAC equipment shortage. In a recently published article, the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) noted a shortage in copper, plastics, concrete, wood, and semiconductors. This has significantly slowed down the manufacturing of new air conditioners and furnaces.
In fact, manufacturing has halted in some cases due to the semiconductor shortage, while other companies have created new alternative designs that don’t require this component.
What Do I Do If I Know I Need New or Replacement HVAC Equipment?
There are shortages of other types of heating and cooling components as well. With limited HVAC systems, parts, and equipment, our Midwest Heating & Cooling professionals recommend you act now.
It’s important to opt for any new installations or replacements as soon as possible to avoid unobtainable equipment in an emergency. Be proactive—this shortage could continue for a couple of years.
Midwest Heating & Cooling Is Here to Help
At Midwest Heating & Cooling, we take great strides to prepare for these types of situations and have already taken inventory of brand new systems to help counteract poor supply.
Even so, we recommend you opt for any repairs and replacements now. Once we install our current inventory of new high-efficiency HVAC systems, it could take up to several weeks until we are restocked with new systems.
Don’t wait until your system breaks down to repair or replace it. We don’t want you to experience a moment of discomfort when having to wait on a part or until a new unit comes in. And you certainly don’t want to have to wait anywhere from days to weeks for air conditioning in your home this summer!
Financing Options and Financial Incentives
Opting for a new system is an investment in your home comfort. A new system provides optimal indoor air quality (IAQ) and can enhance your indoor living experience, as well as keep you healthy.
