7 Ways to hide your AC Unit: Bizarre and Practical

October 23, 2013 | Blog

Are you tired of looking at your AC condenser? There are plenty of ways to hide your ugly air conditioner and allow it to blend into your home. Below are seven bizarre examples of how to hide your AC unit.  There is a range of materials, colors, and styles, some eccentric and others ultra-practical.

Things to Consider

Before we get to the creative examples of hidden condenser units, let’s take a look at some things you should consider if you’re thinking about hiding your AC unit.

  • Material – Metal, Wood, Color, Plants, etc.
  • Cost – What’s in your budget?
  • Location – Would the unit go better in another area of the house? It can be moved.
  • Let it Breathe – Make sure it has enough air to offload heat.
  • Temporary vs Permanent – Some options are basically a divider to help cover the unit.
  • Accessibility – Eventually, this unit will break. Technicians need access in order to diagnose and repair.

Call it Art

This hinged metal frame allows both protection and breathing. Maybe these goodman units are a little too visible for some. However, they look well-protected and are clearly easy to access for repairs. We appreciate how the style of the homeowner shines through!

Wilson’s Air Conditioner

A wood fence is more movable and blends to the color of the house. This classic method can also match the fence around your home if you want it to.

In the Dog House

This creative method matches the house and is well-flanked by bushes. It’s also breathable and looks easy to remove for repairs.


Temporary Teak

The material and appearance are good, but if a strong wind comes this could topple. This is probably better to bring out for backyard parties and other temporary occasions.

Art Deco Teak

Did somebody say Jenga? This look is aesthetically pleasing, it looks studied than the previous teak example.

The Ultimate

Talk about functional! In this example, the air conditioner goes on the bottom, and the gardening tools go up top. As far as accessibility goes, we’re not sure how easy it would be for the technician to reach the unit.

Well, Well, Well

This one might win the most points when it comes to creativity and breathability.
