Here’s how you can make a DIY air conditioner:


  • Table fan
  • Bucket
  • Bucket lid
  • 1-1/2 in. PVC(cut into 3-inch segments)
  • Mint spray paint
  • Gold spray paint

  • Drill right through the insulation and bucket together with a hole saw, while holding the two tightly.

  • Hold the bucket against the wall or ground to exert more pressure. Repeat the step to make three holes in one line across the bucket, about 2 inches apart.
  • Take apart the fan, and unscrew it from the base. You can use an electric drill to unscrew the base as it can be very tight.

  • Remove the front face of the fan too and remove the extra screws too.

  • Trace a circle on the bucket lid using the front panel of the fan. Ensure that the circle is big enough for the fan to sit inside the lid.

  • Using a box cutter, cut the inner part of the lid.

  • Spray paint the bucket and your pipe fittings in the color of choice.

  • Paint the fan and the bucket lid in a complementary color.
  • Allow it to dry completely.

  • Arrange the pipe fittings into the holes. Use hot-glue to keep them straight if they are loose.
  • Insert the frozen gallon of water into the bucket, and put the lid on.
  • Reassemble the two sides of the fan back together. Fit the fan front-first into the hole in the lid.
  • Your DIY air conditioner is ready to drive away from the heat.

The DIY air conditioner might not be very effective in bigger spaces but for a small area, it can be a game-changer, blowing ice cold air for your comfort!
