AC cages are here to stay

In today’s economy, making an investment for Air Conditioner Security is something that very few people think about, much less budget for. The recent copper theft epidemic has opened the eyes of criminals to a brand new way of making money. Stealing air conditioners will simply not just disappear when the economy returns to normal. In times past, air conditioner theft did occur, but it was typically focused on re-selling the unit to a contractor who then installed it into another home at a dirt cheap price. Now, the untraceable copper in the A/C units can be taken to virtually any scrap yard and turned into quick cash. Although scrap yards have tightened regulations, they are still in the business of buying and selling metal, not catching criminals. This spells trouble for anyone who has a costly investment sitting outside their residence or business. If you are not protected, you are a target. To make things worse, the problem has not stopped at copper. Theft of brass, aluminum, and steel has also been on the increase. Air Conditioner cages are the best way to send a thief down the road. An A/C cage is a physical deterrent that can actually prevent a theft whereas other options cannot. Don't take the chance of leaving these items exposed because the damage is too costly. Property Armor has been in business since 2003 and deals with these situations on a daily basis.
