There are all kinds of DIY air conditioners you can make at home. Some are easier to make than others, but they all work quite well.With winter at least six months away there has to be some way to cool down without spending all your hard-earned shekels on a pricey new air conditioner. Luckily, there is. You can make a DIY air conditioner using materials that you probably have in your house.
Here’s a nice instructional video by Coverrise showing how he made his own air conditioner out of a few spare parts.”1 fan,1 ice cooler,1 water pump,a few feet of copper tubing,a few feet of plastic tubing,a few zip ties”
Here’s his explanation:
“The fan blowing against the copper produces cold air. Copper was used since it can stay cold for longer periods. The water pump then pumps water throughout the fan and back in the cooler. The cycle repeats.”Copper is a great conductor of heat.
When ice-water is pumped through the copper tubing, the heat within the warm forced air from the fan tries to equalize with the cold water in the tubing.In a sense the ice water in the tubing steals the heat from the air and delivers it back to the ice box. In doing so, it melts the ice, but if you have enough, you can keep this effect going long enough to get to room feeling comfortably cool again.(mobilerik)
