HVAC Copper Theft Prevention

copper theft


Aluminum and copper are just some of many materials used in the construction and operation of HVAC units. Non-ferrous metals like these are strong, malleable, lightweight and rust/corrosion resistant. Copper is particularly desired.

As the demand for this type of metal increases, thieves are targeting the copper components in HVAC units everywhere. Therefore, it is worth every effort to protect your equipment, since copper theft is a crime of opportunity. Luckily, there are solutions to protect your property.
• Motion sensor lighting: These are particularly distracting for thieves because they can’t work as discreetly.
• HVAC alarm systems: These are designed to detect interruption and tampering by emitting a loud siren.
• Security cameras paired with motion lights: These solutions go the extra mile in that they help police identify a suspect if they get away.
• Metal air conditioner cages: These cages are built with thick metal making them nearly impossible to remove or damage.
Remember, the cost of prevention is much less than the cost to replace. If you need assistance with protecting your HVAC unit, give us a call at 317-859-4270. We’d be happy to help consult with you on the right option for your unit and property type.
