Did you know that 69% of companies do not have full visibility of their supply chain? 

It’s no secret that supply chain issues are affecting many companies. One industry that’s been hit really hard is construction. It can be really frustrating if your HVAC system breaks and you’re without air conditioning for days in the middle of summer or if you can’t keep your home warm during the winter. 

In order to avoid being without a working AC system, there are a few things you need to do. In this article, we are going to tell you what you can do to stay on top of supply chain issues as Coastal Comfort Air Conditioning does. 


If you’re a homeowner, you need to be prepared. There will always be circumstances that you can’t control. For example, if a storm comes through and knocks out the power, or if a rodent gets in and causes damage. However, there are some actions you can take in order to keep your home air-conditioned. 

Regular Maintenance 

While it may seem like a useless task, scheduling regular maintenance can really help you avoid supply chain issues. A professional from Coastal Comfort Air Conditioning will be able to check every part of your unit and identify potential issues before they become too big. It will also prolong your HVAC system, meaning you won’t have to won’t have to replace your unit as quickly.

Replace Before It Breaks 

Order your new HVAC system before it breaks. While it’s being ordered and shipped to you, you won’t have to be uncomfortable in your home. If you know your unit is getting old, ordering it in advance will allow you to avoid a lot of stress. 

Business Owners

As a business owner, you want to do everything you can to make your customers happy. Even if it’s not in your control, if you don’t have supplies or replacement parts, you’ll likely lose customers. 

Pre Order Equipment 

It’s hard to know how much to order. Overstocking can be just as harmful and costly as understocking.

Preordering can be helpful when there are supply chain issues so you always have stock ready and coming in. Before you start ordering, be sure you have enough money and storage. 

Work With More Suppliers

If you have a supplier that you regularly work with you may not want to begin working with another one, but when it comes to issues with the supply chain you may want to consider it. Every company responds differently to issues and one may be more prepared than the other.

Thanks to Amazon, we’ve gotten accustomed to fast, one-day shipping. However, since equipment and supplies are back-ordered and there’s a shortage of labor, it’s not always possible to get your HVAC system fixed as soon as it breaks. Following the tips above will help you stay ahead of supply chain issues.
