How to Build Your Own Air Conditioner Fan

Water-Pipes-Fan

With the summer heat slowly entering our lives (and homes) this year, all of us are searching for ways to keep us protected. To create a cool ambiance in your home, you not only need a good structure but also good air circulation. At the end, an air conditioner is the best choice when it comes to effectiveness/effort. And with the cleverness of the DIY community, you don’t even have to spend money on a full size air conditioner, especially if it can come at a high price. Instead, build it in your home with things at your disposal.

• a tabletop fan;
• copper tubing;
• flexible plastic tubing;
• fish tank pumps;
• cold water reservoir;

The relatively inexpensive DIY project requires a bit of technical awareness, but the great thing about it is that it can be easily implemented by anyone without a degree in this field. Begin by wrapping copper tubing around the back and front of the fan; make sure you do this in a spiral manner. Be careful to connect the copper coils to the reservoir below with some flexible plastic tubing. This way, the fan will be able to oscillate freely. Now, the pumps will circulate the water from the reservoir up through the coils giving the chilled air you are yearning. Check the images to see if you achieved the same clever result.

    Ingenious, and pretty cheap. All you really need is ice and an electrical power source for the fishtank pump and the electric fan. There are a lot of old people who die in the heat using only the electric fan because it does not cool. This mod does.

    You can also use a swamp cooler pump.

    What do you do with the condensation that will eventually drip off of the copper tubing?

    Fantastically Great and simple idea not rocket science . Use an old cooler box make two holes in the lid . Fill box with water and ice and pump water through tubing allowing it to run back into the cooler box . SIMPLE
