Many of us love to entertain friends and loved ones outdoors as the weather warms up. But an HVAC unit that’s too visible in your yard can ruin your home’s outdoor aesthetic. Though an essential component of your luxury home, it’s not necessarily something you want front and center.
There are plenty of great ideas and materials to help you hide your AC units. Your local air conditioner repair company is your best bet for guidance on these issues. Today Cooper Brothers, Inc. shares options that can help hide your air conditioner without sacrificing style.
Wicker screens can give your backyard a cottage garden feel while keeping your HVAC unit out of sight. They’re flexible and versatile so you can arrange them in different configurations that fit your home’s exterior. You don’t need to attach a freestanding screen to another structure. Their clean white lines add an eye-catching appeal to any garden or backyard.
Plants and Shrubs
Use the greenery or shrubbery around your home to hide your HVAC unit. Plants, flowers or hedges will not only hide your AC unit but also add color and texture to your exterior. Faux ivy leaf netting can also mimic tall hedges. Keep in mind that you’ll need a fence to attach it to. Your AC repair expert can help you conceal your air conditioner without compromising its efficiency
Cover your HVAC unit with a bamboo screen or surround it with bamboo plants. Bamboo complements a Zen garden or tropical design. It goes well with stone pathways, water installations and garden statues. Bamboo plants, though, grow fast and need more maintenance than other plants. Don’t let them block the air passages of your HVAC unit.
