FACT: Air conditioner cages from AC Security Systems have a 99.8% success rate of theft prevention.
The rising price of copper, declining economy and easy access to air conditioners outside of homes and buildings have ignited A/C copper-theft across the nation. In some states, like Georgia, metro police departments have even developed specialty task-force units, dedicated to resolving and preventing copper-theft crimes. Unfortunately, it’s a crime that has continued to rapidly gain momentum, despite police efforts.
Crime reports suggest that once copper-thieves discover a home or building with unsecured AC units, they tend to sweep the surrounding neighborhood and community for more exposed copper steal before leaving the area.
