It would work, however you need to make sure you are not in an enclosed room.В When the dry ice melts it gives off CO2 and this could suffocate someone.
Lol I made a miniature version of this is by using a laptop fan
LOL . . . . LOL
have u tried using dried ice inside your cooler? I wonder if it would work better, because dried ice dont melt.
This is how millionaires are birth American ingenuity!!!
I'd like to know what year the Toyota Terce was that you got the blower motor out of. -thanks
will u make one with a compressor like a real AC
Okay, it's a swamp cooler. Neat idea!
that is a great idea :)
Really nice video. Great idea using a blower motor from a vehicle. It's already matched to run on 12v. I'm using videos like yours to make one for my Durango as the A/C is shot. $1200.00 to fix it! What I'm doing a little different is along with frozen 2 liter soda bottles(8) I'm also laying in some metal lathe to act as like a coil to collect the moisture in humid air and let it condense leaving dry cool air to be blown into the vehicle. Thanks again for your ingenuity.
VERY NICE!!! WHY IS YOUR VIDEO SO DAMN LOUD???
Hello how much will it cool a room? in Celsius ? aprox, thanks !
I liked this idea :)
My opinion, switches are a dime a dozen. He should give it a shot and see if the switch gets warm -.-
Not bad sir. The New Macgyver :D
you'll be fine, but i guess you figured that out already. You'll also only have "high" setting, or if you want to get really fancy, you can rig up 3 switches, one with a single ballast resistor (chrysler electronic ignition style) in series with the motor, and one with two ballasts, and then one straight from the battery. the 2-ballast will give you low speed, the single medium, and no resistor=high speed. they will also add a good bit of heat to your air, so mount the resistors outside the duct
Well he mentions 100 F and many of the viewers are in those climate zones
Does this guy SOUND like he's in one of those climates?
Watch the video but don't talk shit like you expect him to assume YOUR environment. Figure out your OWN solution or adapt HIS. Don't ask him stupid questions.
Have you heard of different countries and different climate zones? Did you know that some countries ONLY have summer and what they call " winter" is heat with lots of rain?
365 days? Do YOU run your A/C during the fall? How about the winter?
The freezer will continue to be cold wither he is using the ice from it anyway. He is simply using the ice that is already made to further cool his house. Please stop hating, especially considering your not good at it.
Add sugar to the ice so it doesn't melt as fast
The funny thing is that if the Freezer you use to make the ice is in the same house as this type of cooler you are actually heating your house not cooling it.
That's a lot of power and wiring. But I bet that SOB blows some air.
I came across your video & I was hoping you can help me. I cannot find the short in my truck blower wiring. If I run the blower straight from the 12v battery with a toggle switch will I be at risk of fire?
hey man this is cool as a mutha i like it alot that was a good idea
so you gonna stop every 2 hrs to get a bag of ice? $2 for a bag of ice, 4 a day,$8 a day , in 365 days is $2,920 not worth it
A/C & a place for cold beer.
Looks nice ! But i wonder can it cool down a normal room? and does the room temperature actually gets lower?
u can use a high output air compresser if u want
If you used dry ice would it displace oxygen indoors or would it be too little to matter? Just curious, my dorm doesn't have AC and we can't have AC units so I'm planning to make something like this for next year.
you should have paid an extra 15$ and bought the whole toyota tercel that fan came out of, chances are that car had ac..
@hutchtransfer hey im building a swamp cooler also! i used a large ice cooler for drinks, beer ,(ect) and cut some holes in it. got a nice blower fan from a slim pedistal fan. and a pump from goodwill thats for a fountain. ive got the blower, pump and wiring done in this thing all im waiting for now is for the pads to arive in the mail
does it keep your car cold!
Great vid! and when the jugs melt down you can just toss them back in the freezer and refreeze them then exchange them for prefrozen jugs. Very good idea!
Thanks for your detailed feedback and thanx for responding so quickly..
Is there any reason you couldn't use a regular plug in fan for an apartment room? Does the battery make it safer avoiding electrical problems or something??
Neat idea! How long does the ice last?
