New trend leads myself and others to locking up the Heating plus A/C

These are actually odd times from my perspective.

I’m in my early fifties so maybe it’s just myself and others getting older plus less comfortable with the way things seem to be heading.

And it entirely doesn’t help that I have just spent the better section of a year inside the Heating plus A/C of my home due to the pandemic. Whatever the deal is, I don’t like some of the trends that I am seeing. Even living out in a rural section is no longer the assured safe space that it once was. Not that any locale is totally safe but, I living in a small rural town consistently felt much more safe. Now I am waking up to details that honestly worry me. In fact, some thieves around here are so desperate that they are targeting the Heating plus A/C equipment. And they aren’t even stealing stuff like compressors or condensers. Those are costly components of heating plus cooling equipment. No, these crooks are simply after the copper fittings used in the Heating plus A/C equipment. Those copper fitting are housed in the Heating plus A/C cabinet that sits alongside your home. The thieves are splitting power to the Heating plus A/C cabinet to then simply ransack the thing. They toss all these expensive pieces of Heating plus A/C component aside like trash just to get to the copper fittings. Then they leave. It’s a total smash plus grab thing. And they then get pennies on the dollar from whomever is willing to take this copper. I can’t believe that I have had to order a protective cover for my Heating plus A/C equipment. It’s like a cage that I lock the Heating plus A/C cabinet down. That is a troubling sign for me.
