Hiding your Air Conditioning Unit

In our area of the country the spring and summer seasons are approaching. You may need to have service done to your air conditioning unit before the warm weather comes. You also may already have an AC unit outside and you just hate looking at it.

Lets face it, some units just do not look appealing to the eye outside and you need to take matters into your own hands to make it. There are a number of different ways to do this just look on Pinterest – LOL! I am going to go over my favorite which is a very simple.

I say simple becuase it is, but you do need the appropriate tools and knowledge. Anyone is able to make this will a little bit of determination.

Simple HVAC trick for your backyard space

The simple fix is to make an enclosure around your air conditioning unit. This can be made with simple wood materials from your local hardware store. Here is a picture example below.

Now this is just one option. As you see in the above image, the air conditioner is not completely enclosed. This option is not only less time consuming and less work but, it can also serve the purpose if you are only needing to hide you AC from a certain angle. Now lets look at another option that is totally enclosed.

This way does have more intensive work to be done. There are different ways of going about this though as you see both photos are completely different styles. If you plan out how you want your enclosure to look, the hardware store should be more than willing to cut your wood however you see fit. This is amazing if you do not have all the power tools to make the cuts yourself. The first photo was made more with paneling and the second with lattice if I am correct. Which ever way you go about hiding and covering your unit to make it look better on your property, any means you take will be simple once you have your plan of attack and style you are happy with.
