  1. HVAC Protection: The WHIP

    Leave a Comment

    How Does It Work?

    The WHIP is a theft detection device that connects to an electronic security system and the service valve of the air conditioner or heat pump to be protected. It triggers the security system whe the pressure inside the refrigerant line of the air conditioner or heat pump drops below an acceptable level. This Drop in pressure happens very rapidly when the thieves cut the copper refrigerant line. Your security system will also be activated if the cables connecting the WHIP and security system together are cut, shorted, tampered with or removed.
