Boost your Curb Appeal: How to Hide your Outdoor A/C Unit

Boost Curb AppealWhen neighbors and friends pass your home, what do they say? While “curb appeal” doesn’t necessarily increase the value of a home, the aesthetics are something that many people take into consideration. Small changes can go a long way. In this case, hiding your air conditioning unit.

Hot Texas days make air conditioning units a necessity. While important to keep you cool, the unit doing the work could be considered unsightly by passers-by, so the need to hide the Air Conditioning unit becomes a priority.

Ways to Camouflage your Outdoor A/C Unit

Shutters that might no longer look good on the home are something that can easily handle this simple, cover-up task. Even if the wear-and-tear has taken a toll on the shutters, it’s likely that a fresh coat of paint will offer an invigorating look to boost your curb appeal.




Artistic Pallets

Most likely, those companies will be happy to have someone take them away at no cost.
