Below is a copy of a news story announcing a price increase on Carrier air conditioning equipment. All manufacturers have announced similar price increases to go along with over 20% of increases last year.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carrier, which manufactures products under the Carrier, Bryant, Payne, and International Comfort Products brand names, announced a price increase of up to 9% on North American residential, light commercial, commercial applied, and HVAC parts and supplies effective April 11, 2022.

Air conditioning contractors are going to have to pass these price increases along. If you think you’re going to need a new air conditioning system anytime soon, you should probably try and get it before this new increase.
