air conditioner

lannegreenelagApril 29, 2005

I would like to hide our air conditior. Hubby is worried about safety, performance, air intake and out ect. Can both our needs be met? How much room around it does this thing need? It is a smaller unit on the coveted, cooler east side of the house, about 5X5.

When we bought our house a couple of years ago, the home inspection guy specifically noted that we would need to clear away all the foliage that had grown up around the air conditioning unit, so we trimmed everything back with at least a foot of clearance on each side--but it's in a particularly dense part of the shrub border that was already here, and I have to trim it back quite a bit, and it can be hard to get to in later summer. I might suggest doing something like one of those trellis things you can get to shield your garbage cans, and using vines to shield it. That way, maybe you can direct the growth up instead of out, where it would have to be whacked back every now and then.

The trellis idea sounds great. Just make sure that air outflow is not obstructed.

Also make it difficult to get in and out. Melt copper has high value on the marketplace today...
