Even if June gloom is keeping things a little cooler for a little longer we know we are headed into summer. And while that is great for your outdoor activities, it may prove a little harder on your AC. Why? Because, courtesy of COVID-19, there are supply shortages and price hikes to contend with this season.
As temperatures rise, the demand for air conditioning systems and services does too. But thanks to a multitude of factors including the production slow-downs caused by the pandemic and the Texas Freeze, along with an increase in home building, there are shortages that will make getting your hands on parts and even full systems harder and far more expensive.
What does this mean for you? Well, if you are in the market for a new AC it may mean that getting that system can be more expensive and it may take longer than usual to arrive. It can also mean that getting your current air conditioner serviced will be more expensive than usual too.
Tips to Handle the Shortage Situation
Here are a few ways that you can make things a little easier on yourself this summer:
- Hop on that new system: If you need a new air conditioner in your home, don’t delay! Get started on your installation or replacement ASAP to avoid being without an AC in the high heat of summer.
- Opt for ductless options: These systems are easier and more affordable to install. They can also save you a lot in electricity costs.
- Get repairs or maintenance NOW: Have a working air conditioner? If you want to ensure it gets you through the summer, schedule maintenance or repairs as soon as you can to avoid needing to wait later on.
