The first day of true summer heat is the worst time to discover something wrong with your air conditioner. That’s why scheduling regular maintenance appointments with your HVAC (stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) contractor is important. This is especially true as global supply chain issues and worker shortages have resulted in longer timelines for HVAC installations and repairs.
Acclaimed! Heating, Cooling & Furnace Cleaning in Edmonton provides residential HVAC services. Here are 4 things you should know about replacing your HVAC in 2022.
Supply chain issues
We have all heard “it is on backorder” or “there are supply chain issues.” The HVAC industry has also been affected. Over the last two years of the Covid-19 pandemic, global supply chains have been strained. This remains true to this day. Nearly every industry is experiencing supply chain problems to some degree. For example, there are an ongoing shortage of some particular HVAC parts, materials, and units. Your professional HVAC contractor will do everything possible to ensure you still get the best quality parts as quickly as possible. However, patience is essential right now.
Many industries are struggling with staffing at the moment. They might be having hiring difficulties, resulting in a sparse workflow that cannot keep up with ordinary operations. On the other hand, some industries are booming now that the world has re-opened after Covid. This means business is much busier than normal and lacks sufficient staff to meet this boom.
Residential Furnace and Air Conditioners were used as much or even more over the last 2 years with so many people working and vacationing at home. For many people, they have forgotten to tune up or provide maintenance on these and as result, are breaking down. Furthermore, summer is always a busy time for HVAC companies. As a result, many HVAC companies are busier than ever.
Additionally, workers are still taking sick days due to Covid-19. This also impacts staffing across all industries.
Supply chain issues, the busy summer season, and worker shortages create longer timelines. Thankfully, Acclaimed! ‘s team has done a great job keeping inventory and access to most units and parts. However, Acclaimed! will do everything possible to provide the most timely service possible.
Unfortunately, inflation is impacting every industry, including the HVAC industry. Manufacturers are also increasing the price of parts, equipment, and supplies as their costs go up. In addition, the cost of fuel has increased transportation costs. While Acclaimed! is committed to competitive pricing, you might see a slight increase compared to years past to offset these costs.
Setting realistic expectations
Your professional HVAC company can help you navigate these issues. However, to put yourself in the best position, plan now for the heating season. Tune-up your furnace or get a quote for a furnace replacement soon.
Additionally, order parts and schedule appointments in advance- if you can. You should also keep up with your regular HVAC maintenance. Professional maintenance keeps your HVAC in good working order and can prevent an unexpected breakdown.
