HVAC Theft Claims Overview
Theft consistently ranks as one of the top four most frequently claimed perils by homeowners each year. HVAC systems are particularly common targets for theft crimes as they are comprised of valuable metals, such as copper, that criminals can quickly sell. Theft claims are often complicated to settle because there are a variety of factors that can influence the scope of repair including the timeline of the theft and regulatory impacts.
