We have lived in the same area for a couple for a couple of years now. We love the neighborhood and we have a great little community that we feel like we can trust. However, for the last six months or so something has been off in our safe little area. I have noticed that there are a lot of break-ins on the cars parked on the street. There has also been one home break-in too. I am worried that it is going to happen to us so I am thinking about having an alarm system installed in our house, just to be safe! Last week, we were walking are dog around the block when we noticed one of our favorite neighbors outside with her head in her hands. When we go closer, we noticed that she was also crying. We went over to see what was wrong and she took us around the back of her house. So one had completely torn apart her outdoor HVAC component. I don’t know why someone would want to tear apart a HVAC system, but she said they were stealing the copper wire inside. I was so upset for her because she was going to have to replace her outdoor HVAC component and that was going to be expensive. I hope she has sometime of insurance that will help, but I am not sure that HVAC systems are covered under you homeowners insurance. I decided that night that I am going to have an alarm system installed right away!
