I swear, it seems like each day that passes brings more stuff that I never thought I would see here where I live. And not in a good way. While I try to be very grateful for the life I have and the community I’m a part of, there’s a lot of strange things happening. It would be nice to come home, sit down in the air conditioning and turn on the TV without some new threat being discussed. It’s just getting to be a bit overwhelming really. The latest thing that is happening in our community is really disheartening. And it’s an attach on an essential to our lives in our heating and cooling equipment. There are now thieves who are so desperate that they resort to ripping of stuff from an HVAC unit. Now it would be one thing if the thieves were taking valuable heating and cooling components. But that is not the case at all. In fact, it’s nearly the opposite of that. These people are destroying the HVAC cabinet and all those valuable components just to get to some copper. And HVAC unit has copper tubing and other copper pieces that have cash value. This is what the thieves are ripping out of the HVAC cabinet. It’s really kind of crazy when you think about it. Thousands of dollars of HVAC technology is left tossed along the yard for a few handfuls of copper. And then, these people are only getting pennies on the dollar when they sell it on the black market. What a shame. Now, I have had to lock down my own HVAC cabinet to ensure that I’m not a victim of this insanity.
