It's hot and getting hotter. An easy, homemade - and inexpensive - way to stay cool is this homemade air conditioner.

If you price air conditioners, you can get a new one for about $100. This homemade version runs about $15 and a little bit of labor - it cuts way down on your electrical bill too.

On average, you'll get temps down to about 55 degrees or 13 celsius - perfect way to kick off Canada Day and the 4th of July as temps climb close to 80 degrees or 27 C.

This is ideal for the County and N.B. Save some money and stay cool. At that cost, you can make a few for your place and everybody will be nice and happy this summer.
