What’s Causing HVAC Equipment Price Increases?
Some of the main driving forces currently impacting prices in the HVAC industry today include unforeseen events, like the severe February snowstorm in Texas, which caused the roof of Trane Technologies to collapse and resulted in a temporary halt to production.
Prices tend to increase when there is a shortage of supply. Cost increases in components, freight, and labor also contribute to price hikes. Over the past few months, Lennox increased prices on residential and commercial equipment, accessories, and parts up by as much as 6 percent because of these reasons.
Why It’s Important to Replace Your HVAC Now
Don’t wait for shortages to drive the prices in the HVAC industry even further up. There’s nothing more frustrating than needing new equipment and having to wait for products to become available—likely at a higher price.
HVAC systems have a service life of 15 to 20 years, and that’s with routine maintenance. An older HVAC system is less efficient and likely to result in higher heating and cooling costs anyway, so sometimes it makes more sense to opt for an upgrade even before the end of your system’s service life.
According to ENERGY STAR®, you could experience a savings of 20 percent on your energy expenses when you replace inefficient equipment.
