Homemade Air Conditioner DIY – The “5 Gallon Bucket” Air Cooler!

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on July 8, 2020

As the heat of the summer keeps on rolling along hard, we are all looking for measures to keep us cool.While it might seem worth it to just go out and pick up something that will last you a while you want to use, some air conditioning units and other ways of keeping cool might be expensive, however, this time, we check out a homemade contraption that was made for just a couple of dollars and can really spit out some cold air.

Ideally you want something that’s going to last you for a while, something that you won’t have to use ice in, however, a little creation like this might just come in handy for a low-key situation where you don’t need it to last very long and also might not have enough power to provide electricity for a full-sized air conditioning unit. Say you’re out racing and are going to be spending a lot of time in the trailer – this would be about perfect should you want to stay cool.

With nothing more than a bucket, a fan, and some ice, the guy is able to put together something that ends up being pretty unique indeed. By making a precision cut in the bucket and applying the fan to the newfound hole, basically, this contraption works in such a way that the air will flow by the ice and be pushed out the other side, creating cool excretion for whoever needs it on one of these early August afternoons that can tend to get quite hot.

Check out the homemade air conditioning unit down in the video below and be sure to tell us what you think of such a contraction. Is this something that you would take on trying for yourself or are you going to stick to more conventional methods to keep cool this summer?
