I can’t believe that it’s come to me having to actually lock up the HVAC cabinet outside my house. First it was extra deadbolts and bars for the sliding glass doors. Then, I had to put up surveillance equipment and floodlights with motion detectors. All of this just to keep from having my stuff stolen or worse. And I live outside the city! That was supposed to be the whole point of moving to a bedroom community. It was a safe place to live and the schools were great. Sadly, it seems that all that is being chipped away at a bit at a time. The latest is thieves ripping apart HVAC equipment just to get their hands on a minimal amount of copper fittings. I mean, why not just steal the HVAC equipment inside the HVAC cabinet then? There are thousand of dollars worth of HVAC components inside that HVAC cabinet so why not steal that? Nope, they simply destroy all that stuff just to get to the copper fittings. It boggles the mind, it really does. But then again, I don’t know what it’s like to have to feed an addiction or be desperate enough that destroying HVAC equipment for a little copper makes sense. This is the new fad and it’s happening with greater frequency in our community. So I had no choice but to take action. Trying to fight with my insurance company over the destruction of my HVAC unit was not something I wanted any part of. That led me to go online to find a cage which fits over the HVAC cabinet and then locks down to the concrete pad underneath. Again, I can’t believe it’s come to this.
