DIY Air Conditioner - Boleh cuba di rumah - Malaysia Green Home

There are a variety of ways to make your own DIY air conditioner. As this video illustrates, one simple variant involves some vinyl and copper tubing, an aquarium pump, box fan, zip ties, ice cooler, scissors and a box fan – all things you can easily find at your local hardware, drug and pet stores.

The fan blows against the copper (which keeps in the cold better than most materials), producing cool air while the pump recycles water from the cooler back into the system – repeat as needed! They may not be the epitome of high design, but both of these projects are great illustrations of how common household items can be re-purposed to serve functions that normally require a much more expensive commercial solution.
