Increasingly it is becoming more and more common to find central air conditioners that have been stripped, broken apart and completely ruined. Thieves have been stripping the copper and metal found inside A/C units and reselling the metal for scrap. Their is one very unique way to protect your home’s air conditioner from potential thieves, which is to use a security enclosure. These enclosures are custom made to fit your central air conditioner.
It is estimated that in recent years the cost of air conditioner thefts has totaled nearly a billion dollars. This estimate reflects the cost of the original unit and the replacement unit as well. What makes this crime even more unfortunate is that in comparison there is very little value in the scrap contained in air conditioners, approximately $80.00 per unit.
Call your local HVAC contractor or Home Services contractor to find an security enclosure for your air conditioner.
