FREE ESTIMATES ON HVAC SYSTEM REPLACEMENTS & INSTALLATIONS

Is your air conditioner struggling to cool your home? According to Energy Star – a U.S Environmental Protection Agency voluntary program, most modern HVAC systems or air conditioners are built to last an average of 15 years, completely dependent on make & model, as well as your climate, how often you run the system, and how often your air conditioner is maintained.

Your air conditioner is something most of us take for granted, and never really give any consideration to until it breaks down & leaves us vulnerable to the elements. When this happens, you’ll rush to find an HVAC company to come to your home, and hope they provide a quick & easy fix. However, sometimes these “quick & easy fixes” can’t actually be completed easily, quickly, or even cheaply.

When this happens, you have a pretty big decision to make: repair or replace your existing air conditioner system? How can you know what the best decision is for you, your home, & your wallet?

HVAC Prices in 2022 Going Up - Air Conditioner Manufacturers Announce Price Increases

Many HVAC manufacturers have already announced price increases going into 2022, making headlines as another round of price increases go into effect.

Across the board, we are already seeing manufacturers raise the cost of equipment, parts, and supplies prices. Many manufacturers have made these announcements public, with increases ranging anywhere from 3% up to close to 20%

The reasons for the increases are due to a multitude of factors, including raw material costs, increased labor rates, fuel and transportation costs, and changes to processes.

price increase graph

Some additional considerations for the most recent price increases may include:

  • R-410a refrigerant costs are 4x higher than 1 year ago and have limits on availability
  • Increased oil and gas prices that impact transportation of heating and cooling products from manufacturers and distribution channels.
  • Trans-EuroAsia Logistics (railway) impacted due to conflict in Ukraine & Russia which is affecting resources and goods required for critical components in heating and cooling products.
  • Increases in commodities prices and logistics

With the recent COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve seen many people transferring to remote work, or spending more time at home in general. This has led to an increased demand for effective indoor air quality and home comfort systems. Many consumers have chosen this past year to make investments in their home, one of them being upgrading their HVAC equipment. Over the last several years, we have regularly seen manufacturer price increases once per year, but COVID-19 has especially hit the industry hard, as many of us have witnessed price increase announcements of major suppliers and brands at least once per quarter.

The HVAC industry, however, is not unique to these price increases. Similar trends can be seen in the construction industry as the demand and price for raw materials increases.

Simply put, the price increases manufacturers face are cascading through the supply chain and are just beginning to show up for the end consumer.

Dear valued customer,

The widespread toll of the global supply chain issues and inflationary pressures continues to impact business and industries around the world, including ours.

Our Trane teams are managing the situation closely and working proactively to help prevent and mitigate the impact of these rising costs and shortages. Unfortunately, we must implement additional pricing actions to offset these excessive rising costs.

Trane is implementing a price increase of up to 18% on select Trane unitary, applied and controls equipment with some items subject to additional price increases. The increase will apply to new and unreleased orders as of May 16, 2022.
