$50 AC Unit Hack
We are pretty excited to bring you our latest build. In our back yard we have an old ugly ac unit. It’s an eye sore like most people’s AC units!
So we decided to hide it with these easy DIY AC shroud.
Here’s what we had to work with... A pitiful bush an a hunk of metal on a small concrete slab.
With a little research we realized we would need certain spacing in order to not suffocate the unit and leave room for breath ability.
We surmised that we needed 54 inches total of an air gap.
We went to the drawing board and came up with this simple design.
We started with four 2x4 posts evenly spaced around the unit.
Then we ran 2x4 on the top and bottom to connect the posts.
Lastly we screwed in the 1x2 slats. We wanted to use slats to again aid in breathability of the unit.
It may look tight but we left enough room! 💪😁
We chose not to cement the posts in case of Maintance or replacement of the unit. Of course we used pressure treated wood.
Just how we planned it!
Hope y’all enjoyed and got some ideals. ✌️
