Looking for a cheap and easy way to combat the summer heat without breaking the bank on electricity? You’ve seen the homemade A/C before, but if you want a more in-depth guide and a heavy-duty variant, then read on. This is a very efficient DIY project that uses about $20 worth of material and takes five to ten minutes to do. Not only is this air conditioner great for using around the house, especially if your A/C goes out, but it can be used outdoors. A couple of people mentioned it was a great camping accessory.
The instructions call for a Styrofoam cooler, a personal fan, pipe fittings, as well as an old paint can and some tape. Of course, this guide is so simple that you could hack together some alternative materials if needed. For example, this woman built hers for $17 and used a dryer duct along with frozen jugs of water.
Want a more advanced version? The video below shows how one guy adapted this design for a larger plastic cooler and even added solar panels! Check out the guide over here.
