Our cages are built to take care of the unit as a whole, however, a few steps can be taken to help further secure your unit!
Get an A/C alarm
Install a residential air conditioner alarm that contains a siren to alert you if the unit is stolen or damaged. These alarms are designed to trigger if the refrigerant line is cut, as well as if a leak develops in the line and refrigerant is lost. You have the option to connect the alarm to your existing home alarm system, which can use auto-dialing to alert security contacts.
Install motion sensor lights
Purchase motion sensor lights that activate when they pick up movement in your yard. Connect them to a floodlight that illuminates the entire area around the air conditioner for extra security, which will ensure that you can easily see potential thieves near to your home. The sensor lights are inexpensive and simple to install yourself, or you can contact an electrician to handle this for you.
Fence your yard
Erect a fence around your entire yard and install a lockable gate. This will increase your privacy and provide a perimeter to deter intruders. They may still be able to enter your yard, but it will be extremely difficult for thieves to lift the unit over the fence quickly or quietly.
Implement one or more of these measures to protect your investment and give yourself peace of mind that you've done everything possible to prevent the theft of your A/C unit.
