Where is your home’s air conditioner located? Is it out in your yard somewhere? In that case, it might be in a spot that affects the beauty of your landscape. One easy way to diminish this concern is to hide your AC unit. How do you go about doing this? We have some suggestions for you to follow!
Use Some Pretty Plant Life
The easiest way to mask your AC unit is to add more foliage around it. How are you supposed to pull that off? Whichever plants, flowers, and shrubs you choose pick ones that are less than twelve inches tall. Plants that grow too high will hamper how well your air conditioner runs. While you might wonder why it’s simple – HVAC units need to breathe, just like we do. Select hastas and lily of the valley – they’re relatively short and help your HVAC breathe easier.
Consider Some Clever Fencing
Another good idea is to use some cleverly placed residential fencing. Although this task may not be easy, it is still a worthwhile project. Either way, give your AC unit plenty of room on every side. This means, of course, that you’ll need about fourteen inches of clearance. Plus, if something should go wrong, there’ll be much more room to move around while conducting repairs. Alternatively, you could use a trellis decorated with climbing vines and blooming flowers, and other gorgeous adornments courtesy of Mother Nature!
Simply Move the AC System Somewhere Else
Sometimes, the best solution is to move your home’s AC system entirely. We don’t mean removing it – as in taking it out, full stop – but merely taking it to another part of your yard. Maybe in the back, where it’ll be harder to spot? That sounds like a good plan. AC lines and electrical lines can be buried so that they run underground instead of disrupting the look and feel of your yard. It could potentially fall into the “out of sight, out of mind” trap.
Moreover, when you compare it to other methods, it turns out that this is the most expensive option. In the end, think about how much you can afford, budget-wise. What does your landscape look like right now? And is it time for an upgrade? Regardless, get in touch with us, and we can help!
