We're in the process of buying our first house. We got a good deal on one because it was slightly messy inside, but all of it was cosmetic none of it structural. So we've been repainting and getting ready to lay new laminate flooring and the like. Yesterday I headed to work and dh headed over to the house to get to work on painting the kid's room and was wondering why the a/c wasn't working. When he went out to check on it he found out the whole unit was gone Someone had come during the night and cut all the wires and hauled the thing off. It happened to two other houses in our neighborhood as well (the only two empty ones). We filed a police report and the like, now we're just debating whether or not to claim it on our home owners (we have a 2k deductible) or eat the cost out of pocket for it. Does anyone have any advice on getting a new a/c unit?
