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

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.

That's Cool, man!

Newsman Aba says:

What size inverter do you use for the solar part?

CurGoe says:

Does it bring the temperature of the whole room down? Thanks.

What are the tools he's using called

Christopher Hall says:

If the PCV pipe went lower near the bottom, it would force the air to go directly across the ice making it colder.

I was gonna try it. But our solarpanels got unstalled.

MrSteelepalm says:

I have a hand fan and spray bottle with cool water from the refrigerator, costs me nothing.

TheManFromTheMoon says:

What would it do with Liquid Nitrogen? XD

Doug Smith says:

Air conditioners are always pulling hot air out of an enclosure as well as cooling the area. Just go outside and stand in front of one.

any tips on hooking up a wall AC to Solar PANELS and BATT?

JermaineATL says:

how well does it cool a room?

Dan Grimes says:

I have absolutely no need for this, and I'm still going to build one. Awesome video!

Very cool!! Thanks for sharing!!!

Going Cuckoo says:

Or you could use DRY ice and get it even cooler and lasts longer!

cast390 says:

This is the best most useful info I found on youtube in a long time,thanks for sharing…

abel wayne says:

Very cool, no pun intended. No, really, very ingenious. I am converting a wall AC unit to a portable, but this would be far less expensive and the materials are very affordable. I am going to look into it, you should market this thing, who knows, you could be the next millionaire who made it big with a simple idea.

Mark Rudholm says:

why bother with the box and tube? you'd get the same results just aiming the fan at the ice sitting in a pan.

Hollie Inan says:

mind blown

Winter Winter says:

What kind of fan and battery are you using? Where do you buy it and how much does it cost?

drrobotnikmeanbeanma says:

Can you use a car batter or a motorcycle battery for the fan ?

drrobotnikmeanbeanma says:

ever try dry ice, would it last longer and work better as of making colder temp ?
