There is a parts and equipment shortage impacting the HVAC industry. By now, you’ve heard the rumors. We’re sure you’re wondering how the shortage might affect you if your AC breaks down. Understandably, no one wants to wait long without AC for a repair part to come in or a new unit to be installed. Especially not in the summer heat.

What’s Causing the AC Equipment Shortage, and How Does it Affect You?

Every year in the Sarasota, Florida area and nationwide, with the summer heat comes an increased demand for HVAC equipment. So, some scarcity of parts in the summer is nothing new.

However, supply chain problems, labor shortages and shipping delays – lingering side-effects of the pandemic – have compounded the issue. HVAC manufacturers can’t get ahold of enough raw materials to meet the demand for parts and equipment. This means longer lead times for local companies like us to obtain the part needed to repair your broken AC, or a new unit to replace it.

But while the shortage of air conditioning equipment is a real challenge, we want you to know that as your local HVAC contractor, we have your back. You can count on us for solutions to keep your home cool and comfortable this summer.

What Solutions Can We Provide for You?

AC problems sometimes occur out of nowhere. But if your AC is beyond repair, we have you covered. We now have access to a variety of Ruud residential units. These include straight-cool systems and heat pumps, both split systems and packaged units, ready to install.

Packaged AC systems are primarily found in mobile and manufactured homes. These units are especially scarce, but we currently have a healthy stock. So, if you need your packaged system replaced, give us a call and we’ll be happy to provide you with a free quote.

Plus, we have extended our 10-year labor warranty to all Ruud products we sell. This warranty is among the very best in the industry and was previously exclusive to our York product line. So, you’ll not only receive fast turnaround time, but also long-term peace of mind.

If you’re planning on replacing your air conditioner soon, place your order early.

Is your AC is still running, but you know its days are numbered? In this case, we recommend planning ahead. Placing your order for a new air conditioner before your current system breaks down will give you the benefit of options. You can choose the brand and model you want, and you won’t mind a longer lead time. Call us anytime for a free quote and personalized recommendations for your home: (941) 474-3691

We’re making every effort to stock repair parts, but you can help us – and yourself – by keeping up with AC maintenance.

We are working continuously to get the repair parts from our suppliers to our customers in a timely manner. Regardless, it’s always best to try and avoid an AC breakdown altogether. Especially at a time like this, we can’t overstate the importance of keeping your AC maintained.

Proper AC maintenance involves simple tasks like changing the filter. It also means scheduling regular tune ups, which include a thorough system check and cleaning. We generally recommend once a year. However, your system may benefit from bi-annual or even quarterly maintenance visits. Ask us about our AC maintenance plans.
