Actually Real DIY Air Conditioning

You might have seen articles describing cheap, simple DIY air conditioning devices. We've seen pictures of cold soda bottles taped to fans, buckets stuffed full of ice with a hole cut for a fan, and other variations of cold thing + fan = air conditioner. Those are all gimmicks that will last for about 10 minutes.

Here's some DIY air conditioning that's really real.

Legit DIY Air Conditioning from MRCOOL

Like we said, the DIY air conditioning equipment you will find online are mostly gimmicks. Most of them are some kind of cooler stuffed with ice and a fan stuck in one end. Yes, they will blow cold air. Yes, they won't consume very much electricity. No, they don't last for very long. No, they won't really decrease interior temperature all that much.

Is DIY air conditioning an impossible dream?

Not if you you're talking about the MRCOOL DIY ductless mini-split heat pump. This DIY air conditioning product is a versatile, easy to install ductless air conditioner that you can put in without special tools or training. As far as we know, it is the only real do-it-yourself cooling solution available. At least, it's the only one that will last longer than 15 minutes.

How MrCool DIY Air Conditioning Works

The MRCOOL DIY is specifically designed to minimize the complexity of typical HVAC installation. A regular mini split or conventional split system needs to be vacuumed and properly charged using specialized equipment. All parts of the MrCool DIY comes already charged with refrigerant and sealed. There is no need for vacuuming or charging. Position the equipment and plug in the lines. That's basically it.

Are There Downsides to MRCOOL DIY Air Conditioning?

Yes, it's not all perfect, but then nothing is. Due to the nature of the design, the DIY mini-split is only available with a 25' line set. You can't make it shorter or longer. It's going to be 25' whether you need that or not. However, for many homeowners, the ability to be able to do the work themselves, save money, and get great air comfort is more than worth that tiny hiccup.
