Make a homemade air conditioner

When your air conditioner stops working, you SHOULD call Kohles & Bach to come fix it. But sometimes it’s more fun to get creative.

With that said, here are three creative ways to cool your house when your air conditioner breaks down (we still think it’s easier to call us).

1. Frozen bottles and a fan


You probably already have a fan? Just fill some bottles with water and freeze them. Attach them to the back of your fan, and you’re in business. Your house will be cold in no time.

2. Cold water and a fan


This one is a little more complicated, but you won’t have to keep re-freezing bottles. You’ll use a fish tank pump to circulate cold water in front of a fan. Here are the full details.

3. Cooler thanks to a cooler


This one uses a cooler (or a storage bin), ice and a fan to circulate cold air through the house. Seems like the perfect solution, if you have an unlimited supply of ice. Full instructions.
