How to Cover Your AC Vent in Winter?
AC vents are a must have feature for any home. They keep your house cool during hot summer days and warm during cold winter nights. If you don’t have an AC unit, then you will need to open up the windows or turn on the heat.
You may not like having to deal with the hassle of opening up your window, but it’s better than freezing outside!
However, if you live in a place where there isn’t much natural cooling, such as a desert island or some other location without many sources of fresh water, then it might be necessary to install an AC unit. That’s why you’ll want to invest in one now before the weather gets too bad.
If you’re thinking about buying an AC unit yourself, then you’ve come to the right place because there are plenty of good deals out there. However, if you really want to save money, then you could always just buy an aftermarket device that does all the work for you.
There are several different types of AC units available today. Some of them are simple devices that simply turn on and off when needed; others allow users to adjust their own settings so they can control the amount of power used by the unit. Most of these devices require regular maintenance, which means they cost money.
But what if there was another way? But what if you don’t have enough money to buy one? Don’t worry, you won’t have to spend a fortune either since most of these units are fairly inexpensive.
The problem is, when it comes time to put the AC unit together, you’ll probably run into problems. For example:
You’ll need to drill holes in your walls and floor so that the ducting can go through.
Through an extensive search, I have found a way to save money on your AC bill. You can make your own AC unit at home – and it’s surprisingly easy! You just need to follow these directions:
Buy an electric fan. Any kind will do, although the larger the fan, the more cool air you can produce. Find three large plastic containers.
The rectangular varieties work best. Drill holes in the sides of two of the containers. And unless you’re a professional, you’ll probably end up drilling into the wrong places. When that happens, your house will start to fall apart! You may even cause other problems such as leaking water and other messes. It’s best to leave this kind of work to the professionals because they know what they’re doing.
Even then, there’s still a good chance that your house won’t be compatible with an AC unit. That’s why it might be a good idea just to buy an aftermarket product. These kinds of devices are specifically designed to eliminate hot weather in homes during the summer.
They require little maintenance, too. While they’re more expensive than regular AC units, you’ll definitely save money in the long run.
You can now enjoy the cool air blowing from your newly installed device. You’ll be able to survive any heat wave that comes your way. There should be enough room between the containers for the fan to fit.
Place the containers on their sides and put them next to each other, with their open ends facing each other. The fan should go in between the two containers. Make sure that the fan is blowing air into the innermost container. Put some ice into the container. It will begin to melt and create cold air, which will blow out of the container’s open end. Make sure to keep the fan blowing in the same direction as it was before you attached the containers.
That’s all there is to it! You’ll now be able to enjoy the cold air on those hot, muggy summer days. Who says you need to spend a lot of money just to stay cool? With a little elbow grease and some spare parts, you can make your own AC unit.
Now get out there and enjoy the summer heat!
