If you’re strapped for cash and need a quick way to cool down a room in your house… this cool little DIY AC unit from HouseholdHacker is exactly what you need. The setup will only cost you about $8 for a Styrofoam cooler and two dryer vents. Now, if you don’t have a small portable fan lying around you will need to buy one…. don’t worry though they’re maybe like 10 bucks.
Trace around the vents
Trace around the fan. His is square, but a circular one will work fine as well
Use a knife to cut out the holes
Freeze some water bottle or ice packs to stick in
Once you do that, just pop the lid back on and turn your fan on
I made one, but I will actually be using it for backyard use around the pool and grilling out with family. What’s even better is filling it with ice and beer… BOOM! You have a drink cooler and an AC. Let us know what you think and make sure to give this a share on Facebook before you go. (h/t MetaSpoon)
