COVID-19 Related HVAC Shortages Affecting Service Times and Jobs in Austin

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — As Texans approached the summer months, A/C companies like Abacus Plumbing, Air Conditioning and Electrical , reached out to the community to make them aware of the impending HVAC system and part shortages related to COVID-19 factory shutdowns. That warning is now a stark reality for many A/C companies in the Austin area, causing long delays for repairs and replacements. The impact is so large that it’s causing some A/C technicians to search for employment with companies that were better prepared for the shortage.

To better serve the Austin community, Abacus heeded those warnings and ensured that they had enough parts and units in stock to make sure their customers received the help they needed without having to wait weeks in uncomfortable situations for new parts to arrive. "We’ve had so many new customers come to us saying other companies just can’t get the work done fast enough," said Duane Moore, General Manager of Abacus in Austin.

Many A/C technicians also feel a responsibility to continue to help their community and are even leaving their jobs to join companies, like Abacus, that were prepared for the shortage. "Abacus is always happy to add talented technicians to our team," said Moore. "They want to take care of their clients and their families and are seeking out companies who had inventory, integrity and the means to take care of clients in need."
