Hiding the window unit AC

When you live in a house with a window unit AC, you can’t help but look at it and think “that sure is an eye sore.” Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of pros to having a window unit AC.

For example, our energy costs are below average each month because the window unit AC doesn’t take up too much energy to operate.

When we are not home, there is no need to cool the house so we turn the window unit AC off for most of the day. When we are home on the weekends and at night, we often only use the window unit AC in the bedroom and the kitchen, if it is a really warm day. For the most part, having a window unit AC in a small house in a warm region is fine. There’s nothing that I feel like I am missing from having a central heating and cooling system. I like being able to control the amount of energy we use on a daily basis. The biggest downfall of the window unit AC is the way that it looks. I am always trying to subtly hide the window unit AC with a curtain or a piece of art that can be easily moved around. I don’t know why the window unit AC has to be so ugly, but it ruins the theme in any room. With some attention to detail and a little creativity, you cover that ugly window unit AC for when you’re not using it or having people over.
