The most popular A/C video on YouTube: “How to make air conditioner at home using Plastic Bottle”

HVAC companies in DE, PA, or MD may go out of business if customers follow the life hack of the most viewed AC video on YouTube. With over 71 million views and 11,300 comments, this video is more interesting to watch than a useful application to keep cool.

Does an HVAC tech recommend this hack?

The video shares the Air Conditioning hack with 3 simple steps.

  1. Take a bottle cut half its bottom and make small holes in its body.
  2. Attach it to the fan and put ice in it.
  3. Switch on your A/C.

Fans don’t cool the room; they cool the body because there’s more air movement. Placing ice in a plastic bottle with holes behind the fan or in front of the fan would work, in theory, because fans could move the cold air.

When we turned on the A/C for the season and realized it was having an issue we knew just who to call! Hillside was out the next day and when it was determined that we needed a replacement unit the work was scheduled and completed incredibly quickly. Everyone who we dealt with was not only professional but also extremely kind and understanding.
