Don’t let thieves destroy the HVAC

Don’t let thieves destroy the HVAC

It has been one of the weirdest years on record for me.

  • The pandemic and the resulting fall out has turned our lives upside down.

My kids are learning from home. My wife lost her job and I am working from the HVAC comfort of my house instead of my office. There have been all sorts of changes and hazards to deal with. However, I never thought I would have to worry about thieves ripping the copper out of my HVAC. But that is exactly what has been happening lately. Fortunately, it hasn’t gotten to us. Yet, there are numerous reports of thieves who are destroying the entire HVAC compressor and condenser unit outside. They are doing this in order to get their hands on the copper tubing inside. Never mind that in doing so, they are completely destroying thousands of dollars worth of HVAC unit. It’s sort of akin to having your car robbed and then set on fire. It’s just beyond senseless. The instances of this happening forced me to take some preventive measures. With the year we have had I don’t think I could handle some idiot trashing my HVAC unit. If I caught them I’d probably go to jail for assault. Instead, I went online to find a way to protect my HVAC investment. What I found was a cage that fits completely over the HVAC unit outside my house. I put some eye bolts in the concrete pad so I could then lock that steel cage down over the HVAC. Man, I sure hope 2021 turns out to be better. It just has to.
