I don't know that it’s now a criminal trend to rip off residential heating and A/C equipment! And it’s not enjoyable if the thieves are honestly taking costly heating and A/C components either, then no, this crowd of criminals is simply destroying residential heating and A/C units in order to get their hands on small amounts of copper. That seems completely absurd to me; I mean if you are going to go to the trouble of stealing why would you only settle for heating and A/C copper fittings? But as I understand it, these folks are super desperate and are not sophisticated enough to find a customer for stolen central heating and A/C components. Instead, they can take the copper fittings from the heating and A/C unit straight to a black market buyer; then but the thing is, even when they're selling what little amount of copper they get from the heating and A/C fittings, they're still getting pennies on the dollar for what it's worth. I can't imagine being desperate enough to destroy an actual heating and A/C cabinet for maybe twenty five dollars worth of copper. But then again, I do not have an addiction problem and so I particularly can't even begin to understand that perspective. But the problem I do have is trying to make sure that this doesn't happen to our heating and A/C equipment. To that end, I went online and found cages that can fit overheating and A/C units and be bolted to the concrete pad. I ordered a single of these heating and A/C cages and it should be here really soon. It's still hard for me to know that I am honestly having to lock down the heating and A/C unit alongside our house.
