Homemade air conditioner DIY - Awesome Air Cooler! - EASY Instructions - can be solar powered!

Published on May 9, 2014 12,165,279 views

Homemade AC Air Cooling unit produces very cold air. 42F air (in an 80F room). items needed: ice chest (hard-sided or styrofoam), pvc pipe, small fan and ice. (small solar panel is optional). great for space cooling. 3 ways to power it: a solar panel, a battery or an automobile (using 12v socket "cig. plug"). this air cooler combines the durability of the "5 Gallon bucket air cooler" with the extra cooling power of the "styrofoam ice chest air cooler". specs: fan: 12VDC 10w 0.8A. solar panel: 15 watt (1 amp). works best in semi-dry or dry climates. (drier air cools down easier/faster than humid). air temperature during testing 80F (4% relative humidity). block of ice lasted 5 hours (larger blocks can last up to 10). to run the cooler 100% off-grid check out my solar ice making/freezer vids.

I've made whole coolers out of it. A cold beer is nice to have after a hard day on the roof.

  • Toaf Loast
    Toaf Loast 2 года назад +Kat Hutcherson yes, but the tinsel is for spreading the air more efficiently
  • Dave XB
    Dave XB 2 года назад Not nearly as well. The tinsel protects the cool air from gamma radiation. So the air stays cooler for longer. It is a key feature of this invention.
  • Ross Mennie

None of you are even slightly qualified to contradict me. If you think you are go to the very bottom of comments and see if you can even comprehend what I wrote there. Why is it always the dumbasses like you who think you are so smart???

    ButterscotchBanana Год назад (изменено) +Ross Mennie No one here was asking about the tinsel's actual function; the OP, and subsequent posters are all making jokes. You are the dumbass, because you chose to direct your snark at people that didn't need the correction in the first place. And your "I'm so smart, look down here" comment is comically simple. Besides, everyone knows the tinsel is there to keep goblins out of the cooler.

The tinsel MUST have a reflective side in order to confuse the senses of the spirits, thus preventing their escape. If you will notice, the tinsel he used is indeed reflective. It is perceptively safe. .. scientific fact.

  • s i l v e r t o n g u e
    s i l v e r t o n g u e 5 месяцев назад So if you cover the open block of ice with salt your ice would last probably about 5 to 6 hours longer before melting and also the salt would drop the temperature of the ice and the air passing over it by almost half again giving much cooler and also dryer air. You can go a step further still by mixing paper or wood pulp or shavings to the water before you freeze it, this can extend the life of the solid ice by as much as a whole extra day although once it does melt it leaves behind a slurry mess if the ice wasn't contained.🤓
