Stolen Outdoor AC Units

Posted on: February 9, 2012

There has been a rash of outdoor air conditioner and heat pump units stolen. The cost of scrap copper is what is driving the thefts. Stolen units are cut into pieces and the metal is sold at the scrap yards. Many of the buildings being targets are unoccupied or occupied only part of the time. Outdoor units that are in an accessible place are easy picking for thieves. One of our customers that had their unit stolen said his homeowner’s insurance gave him 90 days to have protection installed on his replacement unit or it would not be covered by the insurance. There are several things that can be done to protect your unit. A steel condensing unit cage can be installed as a deterrent. If you have a monitored security system we can supply a device to tie into it to signal the police of someone tries to take your unit. If you are interested I protecting your investment, please call and we will be glad to help you protect your unit.
