Summer has arrived with its scorching heat, but fear not! With a little brain and creativity, you can make a DIY air conditioner using simple materials like a compact fan, a Tetra Pak, and some ice. Get ready to enjoy some relief from the blazing temperatures with your very own DIY cooler!
- Compact fan (like an old computer fan, or ones from our Esmeris range)
- Empty and clean Tetra Pak
- Masking tape or hot glue
1 – Preparing the Tetra Pak
Let’s begin with the empty Tetra Pak, which will serve as the ice reservoir. Make sure it’s clean and dry. For greater efficiency, you can use those with a screw cap or cut off the top to create a wider opening, but leave at least some of the side walls to maintain its structure.
2 – Assembly
Keeping the Tetra Pak horizontal, with the opening upwards, place the fan on the upper side of the Tetra Pak, the same where the opening is, and cut out the shape. Secure with duct tape or hot glue. Fill the lower part of the Tetra Pak with ice, so that the ice is not in contact with the impeller. Power up the fan and make sure the airflow from the fan passes through the Tetra Pak to cool itself as it passes.
3 – DIY cooler drive
Turn on the fan and feel the magic of fresh air begin to spread. The airflow will pass through the ice block, cooling it down and bringing a nice cool feeling to your room. Done! Your DIY cooler is ready to go.

– To enhance the effectiveness of your makeshift air conditioner, you can add a few drops of essential oil to the ice blocks. This way, you can enjoy a delightful fragrance along with the cool breeze.
