    This guy has it all figured out. 105 outside and 88 in here


    I can't get it to work neither, oh well. It was supposed to be a clip of some dude making a air conditioner. Using one of those tall osalating fans, quarter inch refer Cu, small water pump and a tub of ice water.

    It was under do it yourself hvac. At you tube.

    Nothing special, I just thought it was creative.

    It said and I'll quote
    The url contained a malformed video id.

    Try again.
    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.

    Something isnt right, the link takes you to a site named "Y8.com", a flash video game site.
    A lack of planning on your part does not constitute a state of emergency on my part.

    Now it's fixed. Had to go to advanced mode to edit your typo.

    Hmm... he claims it uses "a lot less electricity" than air con... Somehow I doubt that. Fan ~100-120 watts, pump ~35 watts, so 155 watts just for the basic part. Add ice to the water: ~200 watts, so 355 watts. A good 5,000 BTU window shaker will draw ~450 watts. Couldn't see what the guy was using to light the room, but if it was a 100 watt incandescent lamp, there you go. No better off than with air con & a compact fluorescent lamp.

    Cold water and ice? He's also not taking into account the electricity he used to make the ice and to cool the water.

    congrats to this guy.....he re-invented the chiller. With that bucket of water,cheap fan and pump,light duty extention cord and copper sounds like a recipe for electricution.

    There are three signs of old age.
    The first is your loss of memory,
    the other two I forget.
