How To Make An Air Conditioner In 5 Minutes

This summer has been filled with record breaking heat all across the U.S. Rory put together this little guide last month and I wanted to share. I can't stop thinking, "Wow!"





Let's do it!


Step 1:
Get your supplies together (the drill is optional because you can easily cut the styrofoam with a knife.)

Supplies -
1 personal fan ($10) or use an old one
1 styrofoam cooler ($5)
Strong tape (I used gorilla tape)
Pipe fittings (I used a 2" connector piece ($2)
Old paint can







Step 2:
Drill or cut a 2" hole on the top/side of the cooler (or anywhere toward the top)







Step 3:
Screw the PVC pipe fitting so half is inside and the other half is outside of the cooler.



Step 4:
Place a paint can on the top (this can be matched almost perfectly to the fan size) cut it like you are carving a pumpkin; at any angle so the top doesn't fall through.)






Step 5:
Put the fan inside this hole, use your tape to secure it in place.



All done! Now, simply add ice or frozen ice packs!


I used frozen ice packs (as we have tons from my cysteamine eye drop shipments from the NIH in Maryland) and they do not create a mess when they melt. As an added bonus you can store drinks inside too! Great for camping, picnics, etc. You could even use a fan that runs on batteries. :)

Happy Monday!
We hope this helps you stay cool this summer.

  3. We still had to use cotton swabs to wipe and scrub surfaces on the blower and enclosure, which is almost impossible on some models. You can't disassemble them enough without separating welded parts.furnace service and repairs

  4. Sometimes you can get an inspection done for free if you just ask about it. Remember that if they do find a problem, it's best to ask about what is going wrong so you can then see about pricing from other places, for more information click here air conditioning replacement pine crest.

  10. Wow, you're a genius :) Fast, easy and cheap. I'll try to do something similar. I think it would be fun. Last year I called masters http://myairmatics.com. They repaired to me all my air conditioning. I'm very grateful for that. While I was waiting of their visit, I would have come in handy this air conditioner.
