Times have gotten deranged lately. It seems that the rich get richer and the terrible get poorer. With this, things like crime rates have risen too, then when my friends recently purchase a home to flip they never even thought about those things. It is in a rough space of town and that is why they were able to purchase it so cheap, little did they know, it would end up costing them a lot in the long run. They had dreams of doing most of the work themselves and selling the property for twice what they paid for it. All of that was dashed when they had a break in one weekend. Not only did the thieves take the tools from the worksite, they chop all the copper piping and even took the Heating as well as Air Conditioning system. This included the unit itself and all the HVAC duct. The place was a complete disaster; For the life of me I couldn’t figure out what they were going to do with an seasoned oil furnace, air conditioning unit, and all that HVAC duct. It wasn’t as if they could install the seasoned HVAC duct somewhere else because I am sure much of it was destroyed when they ripped it out of the walls. It turns out that it could be sold for scrap metal along with the copper pipes. People are desperate these days I suppose and even the older oil furnace could be sold for aftermarket parts if they knew the right place to buy it. After the break in, my friends put in an alarm method and set to work putting in all new plumbing and a new Heating as well as Air Conditioning system. If there is a brightside to all of this, is the the fact that the new Heating as well as Air Conditioning method will help them get a better price when selling the house. It is far more efficient and the new owners will have the piece of mind that it will operate officially for years to come.
