Equipment Shortage Update, Price Increase
The Western Heating & Air Conditioning team is always upfront with our Boise customers––honesty and integrity are at the core of our business.
Last December, we told you about supply chain issues. As a result, there was an industry-wide price increase on heating and cooling products.
Due to the ongoing HVAC parts shortage, another price increase will begin this July. The drought may also create longer wait times for air conditioning units, ductless mini splits, heat pumps, gas furnaces, and more in the Boise area.
We encourage our Idaho neighbors who need a new system to order it soon. If your AC is 10 years or older, upgrading to a new efficiency unit could save you 20 to 40 percent on utilities, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
New Construction in the Treasure Valley
Take a short drive around Boise––you’ll notice lots of things being built. We’re pleased to see the Treasure Valley booming and expanding, having served this area for over 50 years. However, this also means companies are ordering large batches of HVAC units.
Equipment gets picked up fast. New construction companies are taking residential units and don’t wait around for special types of equipment. Coupled with a worldwide supply chain shortage, this may create limited availability or delays for specific products.
Order now and lock into a price. Create a healthy and comfortable home for your family to enjoy.
How Do I Know It’s Time to Upgrade?
Think your cooling system might not make it through the summer? With proper maintenance, the average AC lasts about 15 years. Here are a few signs you may need a new unit:
- High electric bills
- Frequent repairs
- Humidity in your home
- Spotty or inconsistent cooling
If your gas furnace is 15 to 20 years old, now is an excellent time to replace it. You’ll get ahead of the curve and have it taken care of before winter. Here are a few signs of a soon-to-expire furnace:
- High gas bills
- Frequent repairs
- Strange noises
- Poor heating
- Stuffy home
