Only Cover the Condenser in the Winter

I guess neither my husband noticed that the cover was still in place when we called it a night

I love when the long cold winter shows signs of being over. Then, spring and summer are right around the corner. The tending of the yard can begin. I have always enjoyed maintaining the yard. My husband has always seen it as such a chore. Where I find it to be relaxing and rewarding. The more the years go by, the more I have focused on our backyard. It has become a bit of a pet project for me. Each year brings with it a new wrinkle or idea. While my husband sits on his butt in the air conditioned house, I am creating a beautiful environment outdoors. It has progressed from simple landscapes to full installations. We now have a wonderful are to entertain. One thing that I still just can’t stand is that darn HVAC unit on the side of the house. My husband won’t let me plant a hedge around it because it needs to be accessed easily. I understand that but it is just so ugly. There’s nothing worse than sitting down to enjoy my backyard vision only to move my gaze to that HVAC eyesore. I thought I had come up with a great plan. Just before a dinner party I threw outside, I used a cover that normally sits on the condenser cabinet during the winter. It helped hide what I consider a real nuisance. I guess neither my husband noticed that the cover was still in place when we called it a night. The next day the HVAC system had been choked out because of that wintertime cover. When the A/C is on, that cover has to stay off. Maybe when we get the new condenser, the HVAC men can put it on the other side of the house!
