14 Creative Ways To Hide Your Air Conditioner Unit

Your air conditioner unit works hard all summer to keep us cool and most of us could not be with out it in the summer months. But if you are like me the last thing you want to do is look at it in your backyard. There’s really nothing pretty about an air conditioner unit.

Unfortunately, for all of their technological wizardry, AC designers haven’t figured out how to keep AC units from being an eyesore. You work so hard to keep your lawn and the exterior of your home beautiful. But there it is, that ugly looking AC unit, ruining your hard work.

Two rules for hiding your outdoor air conditioner

RULE #1. DON’T BLOCK THE AIR FLOW.

RULE #2. MAKE SURE THE EQUIPMENT IS ACCESSIBLE FOR SERVICE

Here are 14 ways to hide your Air Conditioner Unit

Two-By-Four Fence

If you prefer a more modern look then this project may be for you this is also good because the wood slats are threaded with a steel rod at the corners creating a hinge – allowing it to fold up when you have to store it in the winter. Source: house-pet.blogspot.co.uk
