How close can I build a privacy fence to an AC unit without damage?

My partner and I are building a trellis that runs one whole side of our property up to this fence separating our front and side yard.

The trellis is 4×4 posts with 2×4 braces top and bottom with 14 guage wire horizontally every 6". We've been going in 10' sections and have this last 7' section to do.

We'd like to continue the privacy fence around to give a good surface for a specific plant to climb (it needs wood not wire) but we're concerned that the fence would affect the air intake for our neighbors' AC unit. The fence would be ~2' from the unit when finished. Is this sufficient clearance? Would this restrict airflow and damage their unit?

Edit: I have done some research online but I'm seeing anywhere from 1-3 feet being the recommended distance.
