Residents of Southern California love air conditioning. With the climate that we have, it is a staple for living in this region of the country. However, if you have an outside air conditioner condenser, it is important to keep it safe. The units contain copper, and that’s very valuable to thieves. You might be concerned as to how to protect the unit if it sits outside, but there are good ways to ensure that it won’t be tampered with.
- Obstruct the view – One of the easiest and least expensive ways is to use bushes and shrubs to hide the air conditioner from view.
- Use an alarm – If you have an alarm system, connect the condenser to it. The alarm will go off if any cables are cut, hopefully scaring off the thieves.
- Motion lighting – This is another inexpensive option. Installing motion detection lighting can deter thieves as well.
