Good air conditioners can be pretty expensive, and if you just can’t afford to purchase one you’re in for a pretty miserable summer. That is, unless you can afford to spare $8 and 10-15 minutes, because that’s all you need in order to build your own air conditioner. Best of all, it’s really easy to do.
Here are the items needed in order to replicate the do-it-yourself air conditioner in the video below:
1 Styrofoam cooler
1-2 Dryer vents
1 Small fan
Numerous frozen water bottles (the more the better)
1 pen or marker for tracing
A small cutting tool
A vacuum for clean-up
There you have it. One downside to using a home-made air conditioner is that you’ll have to constantly refill the cooler with fresh frozen water bottles. So, it’s a good idea to always keep some spare bottles waiting in your freezer.
I sure wish I had known about this last year when our air conditioner was out and we were about to pass out from heatstroke. It would have saved us our sanity and money. Let us know if you’ve tried this yourself.
