How to Hide Your Outdoor HVAC Unit

Your air conditioning unit is essential for the summer months. It works hard to keep you cool, but it can also be a noisy eyesore. AC units can take away from your exterior design, so what can you do?

Today, we’ll share some easy ways to hide your outdoor unit and level up your outdoor aesthetic at the same time.

Wood Fence

Your classic wood fence can be a great way to hide your outdoor air conditioner. If you decide to go this route, start with solid post holes, use a wood that can stand up to outdoor conditions where you live (like cedar or redwood), and maintain it regularly. Leave at least one opening for servicing the unit.

Vine Lattice

Vines can be a great way to conceal your outdoor AC unit. By creating a wood lattice structure and introducing vines, you’ll be able to grow a beautiful addition to your exterior that brings more green to your setting. Expect from vines to grow in a few months, and think about getting evergreen varieties to keep the enclosure full throughout the year.

Flower Planter Boxes

Are you ready to level up your AC unit camouflage game? Grab yourself a planter box and your favorite flowers!

Flowers can be a great addition to any building, and they’re just as useful in concealing AC units. Think about starting with a wood enclosure and adding on some plants to liven up the setting.

Whatever you decide to cover your unit with, it’s important to always keep in mind that you should never cover the actual unit with a cloth or vinyl fabric. Many people don’t realize that covering the HVAC unit may attract outdoor critters to make a home inside the unit. If this has already happened to you, it is best to call your local air duct cleaning company and schedule HVAC system cleaning.
