What Caused This Heating and Cooling Equipment Shortage?

Slowed production from the pandemic and extreme weather conditions contributed to the parts shortage. Copper rods, resins, microchips, compressors, and coils are particularly behind in production, preventing critical heating and cooling components from being manufactured and delaying the production of furnaces and air conditioning systems.

A shortage of workers in the industry has also contributed to this issue. At the same time, the pandemic has more homes and businesses purchasing indoor air quality (IAQ) products to create a clean and germ-free environment.

Why Are Equipment Prices Increasing?

The cost of various materials—such as copper, steel, and plastic—has also increased, forcing manufacturers to raise prices to keep up with demand. On top of this, annual manufacturer price increases are likely to occur by the end of the year, so the cost of HVAC equipment will continue rising.

When Will Product Availability No Longer Be an Issue?

There’s no way to know for certain when inventory will return to previous levels. The demand for products remains much higher than supply. Don’t wait—opt for the equipment you need today. With autumn weather on the way here in Oregon, the demand for efficient HVAC products is likely to continue. Prepare yourself now!
