HVAC companies can’t fulfill homeowners’ needs quickly enough — here’s how to be prepared for an AC emergency

If your air conditioning company has said they can’t service your system right now, they’re probably telling the truth.

The summer heat is taking its toll and homeowners across the state are rushing to get their air conditioners fixed in 90-plus degree weather. However, the ongoing pandemic has led to a major shortage in the HVAC industry, according to Abacus Plumbing, which means that companies do not need parts or equipment to repair or replace systems.

Neglecting your system maintenance at this time of year could mean that an imminent failure could take weeks or months without repair.

One of Abacus Plumbing’s heating and cooling specialists has crucial advice for homeowners.

“Have your air conditioning serviced,” says Matt Lopez, air conditioning expert at Abacus. “If there’s any doubt in your mind that you haven’t done any maintenance, or if you’re in doubt about buying equipment, now is the time. Do not wait. Do not hesitate. There is no guarantee, no promise that the equipment will be available by the end of the summer. You may be without air conditioning.”


Trusted in the Houston area for nearly 20 years, the professionals at Abacus Plumbing realized how the supply chain shortage could affect homes and planned ahead.

The Abacus team has enough parts and equipment to get their customers through the summer and has maintained the systems well.

In addition, the home service experts provide reassurance beyond the initial repair or replacement. With the Abacus Lifetime Parts & Labor Warranty, your system can be covered for the rest of its life.


Founded in 2003, the company says it has built a reputation for first-class service and the highest quality craftsmanship. It’s enough that they mean it when they say, “You can count on us!”
