HVAC Equipment Shortage: What You Need to Know
A global shortage of microchips and other key supplies has created the perfect storm in the HVAC industry—one we hope will blow over as soon as possible!
Right now, our entire industry is grappling with equipment shortages due to supply chain issues and available workers. While everyone is confident the supply chain will eventually catch up, it is becoming more challenging to meet the demand for new HVAC equipment.
In a recently published article, the Associated General Contractors of America noted a shortage in copper, plastics, concrete, wood—and yes, microchips. That has significantly slowed down the manufacturing of new air conditioners and furnaces.
