As businesses open up and our lives start getting back to normal, we’ve encountered a few roadblocks. It’s probably no surprise to you from reading the news that there are supply shortages when it comes to components in the HVAC industry, causing prices to increase dramatically. So far, prices for standard air conditioning units have risen 15% in some areas and they might keep going depending on how long the supply shortage lasts.
First, we’d like to tell you that not all components are increasing dramatically in price, so there’s no need to panic. We urge all homeowners who are in the process of scheduling an appointment with us, or who are even thinking about one in the future, to call us and discuss prices.
We’ll be honest, if there’s a price increase on the specific work you need, then we’ll tell you. Let’s measure the severity of your work and figure out a plan going forward that doesn’t break your budget!
“What Does This Mean for Me?”
All of this information might be interesting, but let’s cut right to the chase. We’ve been notified by our suppliers that things are going to get worse before supplies are replenished, and it could take up to four weeks before certain equipment is available to you.
Here are a few additional ways this shortage could affect you:
- New installations. If you’re looking to buy a new air conditioning or heating system, then we recommend you do this ASAP. Call us for a free estimate and schedule an appointment to discuss financing options.
- Repairs. Planning ahead for your repair appointment could be an immense help. Calling us in advance to schedule repairs will mean that we can make sure we have the right equipment available and can charge you as low a price as possible.
- Replacements. Don’t get scared of an AC replacement just because of these shortages. You don’t want your system to break down in the middle of summer when prices are at their peak. Call us early to schedule your replacement.
- Maintenance. Maintenance is going to be the key to making sure your system doesn’t need to be replaced or repaired. We’ll catch any small issues and fix them before they turn into full-blown part replacements and repair needs.
