Copper Thefts-Marking A/C Units

Area: Zone 3

Date: 9/21/2011

To deter copper thefts: Turn off the unit and use fluorescent rustoleum paint on the a/c coils. One can spray on the address or phone number (something identifiable) and keep a record of serial numbers of a/c units, and take photos of them in case of theft.  Property owners should check vacant properties often to ensure they are secure.

Another deterrent is to install a pressure switch which will activate the alarm in case the unit is tampered with.

We encourage neighborhood watch programs and please report suspicious activity via 911 immediately.
