Safeguarding The Outdoor AC Unit With An AC Cage Would you have thought it? ac units are a prime target for robbers looking to cash in quick on the valuable copper-containing components. (No, we’re not recommending that you make money this way.) The crook receives about $40 to $50 for every ac unit they manage to collect and the householder incurs between $700 to $5000 from the damages while having to repair or replace essential equipment. You may need to consider purchasing an AC cage if you happen to be concerned about the possibility of your air conditioning system being stolen. Copper is a rather valuable commodity nowadays - averaging nearly four dollars per pound - and one of the most common reasons goods are stolen is that they contain copper. All over the nation, copper theft has become a serious issue. Copper is used in the manufacturing of electrical equipment, and as smart phones and other gadgets reach a broader consumer base, this malleable element just keeps climbing in importance. Air conditioning units are a very easy target for copper crooks because they are quick to remove and include a fair amount of the desired metal. The need for a criminal to get out fast means that she or he will likely do a lot of damage to your property along the way, and you will be left to cover the bills. In addition, you won’t have any air conditioning for as long as it takes you to replace the unit. Most likely, your air conditioning unit is stored in a remote area of your property, potentially outdoors. This minimizes the potential for the thief to get caught, where they're able to get in and out pretty quickly with the copper. For anybody with the right tools and the criminal frame of mind, you are in essence leaving a $1000 box exposed and unprotected. Although an AC cage may appear like money you don’t need to spend, you'll save hundreds to thousands of dollars if you are the target of copper robbery. A cage will be a substantial impediment to any thief who expects to take advantage of your out-ofthe-way Air conditioning unit. The in and out in five minutes is impossible once the AC unit is protected by a sturdy cage the thief cannot penetrate. The cages are easy to adjust and are capable of accommodating most residential and commercial air conditioners. Affordability is a key factor especially since they eliminate more costly damage if robbed and some companies offer flexible payment arrangements. With a simple installation, you are left with a well-protected AC unit that looks nice also. If it is necessary to remove the cage for maintenance reasons, you as the owner (but certainly not the crook!) will be able to do this without any hassle. Installation is not difficult where you place the cage over the Air conditioner and mark where the anchoring bolts have to be. Then, after taking the cage off again and placing it to the side, dig holes in place of the marks. The holes should extend approximately 16 to 20 inches into the ground, and since you could encounter tree roots within this distance, have a small saw available. Once the holes are made, the anchors must be attached to the cage bottom which you will need to place the cage upside down in order to do this. The cage can be lowered over the unit once more with the four anchors covering the four holes. Once the cage has been positioned evenly, with care pour in mixed concrete into the holes around the anchors. Thieves cannot steal parts from your air conditioning system with top quality AC cages.
