The temperature is rising...it is hard to breathe and you do not have an air conditioned room to find relief.
So what can you do? Here is a step by step tutorial of how you can build a homemade 5 gallon bucket air conditioner that is portable.
At least you will be able to find SOME relief from the unrelenting heat. Read on...
Let's face it, not everyone can afford to install a home cooling system.
You can always invest in some portable fans or run ceiling fans counter-clockwise, which pulls hot air up and away from you. Windows radiate the sun’s heat into your home, and keeping them covered from 11am through the hot afternoon hours is essential to keeping cool.
Staying cool is particularly important for older adults and children, who tend to be more sensitive to heat. Early symptoms of heat cramps include excessive sweating, severe thirst and muscle cramps. If the heat exposure continues, it can progress to heat exhaustion, which causes nausea and vomiting, dark urine, headaches and dizziness. Signs of heatstroke -- an emergency that requires immediate medical attention -- include rapid breathing, a weak pulse, abnormal behavior and confusion, or even seizures.
Prevent heat emergencies by drinking cool liquids. If you notice symptoms of heat cramps, lie down in a cool place, like a basement, with your feet raised a foot off the ground, and apply cool damp towels to your skin to lower your body temperature, recommends the University of Maryland Medical Center. Lying in front of a fan can also help you cool off.
If you do have an air conditioner or have one and it is not functional, you can find relief with this homemade portable air conditioner.
This portable bucket air conditioner can easily and cheaply be put together and serve as a personal cooling device making life a little more comfortable.
