A bucket of about 20 liters with lid (you can recycle a large bucket of paint!)
An inner polystyrene cube
A PVC tube about 3cm in diameter by 30cm long
A 1 5/8 inch (4.1 cm) hole saw
A portable fan of 7 inches (17.7 cm)
A pen or marker
A bottle of cold 3-liter water
1.Place the fan in the bucket -with its lid on- and pointing down, well centered on the surface of the lid. Now, mark your outline with the pen.
2 Use the cutter to cut the diameter of the fan you just marked. If the lid made of a tough plastic, use a saw with fine teeth to perform this task less expensively.
3.If the fan you are going to use has supports or feet, you may have to remove them, with a saw for plastics or metals, depending on the case.
4.Check that the fan adapts well to the hole you have made, is well secured, without falling into the cube.
5.Drill 3 holes in the side of the bucket, with a drilling saw or with a drill bit.
6.Insert the polystyrene cube into the large cube and also drill it through the holes you just made, as in the image.
7.Take the PVC pipe and cut it into three pieces of equal length, with a serrated saw. These three tubes will be the cold air vents of your air conditioning.
8.Insert these three tubes into the holes and make sure they are securely fastened. You can use to fix some glue, or an expansive polyurethane foam, for example.
9.Let’s go with the inner polystyrene cube lid: cut it enough so that the air passes from the fan and is well secured and insulated inside. This step is not essential, but the inner bucket material will ensure that the lower temperature of its interior is maintained for longer and, thus, the cooling effect is prolonged (the author of the project estimates that it can last giving cold air for about 6 hours ).
10.Place the bottle with cold water inside both cubes, close the lid polystyrene, close the plastic lid with the fan embedded in it, and plug your new low-cost portable air conditioner into the electric current to test it.
You will check that the air comes out through the three tubes, dragging the freezing temperature produced by the cold bottle inside.
Safety and maintenance: make sure that it does not produce large vibrations that end up damaging its parts or causing it to fall to the ground, and that at no time the fan will fall into the cold water.
