"Solar" Air Conditioning

Components used : 
2x BIG DC fan
1x Aquarium pump (preferably DC pump)
1x CPU Heatsink
1x copper pipe
1x polystyrene ice box
Nx reusable ice pack 
Solar panels (Optional)

The tools and components were provided by our FYP supervisor Teo Shin Jen.

What makes it solar then??? Well, if the Solar panels are used to provide 12v to the dc fan and dc pump in this setup, isn’t that “solar air conditioning”.

Chill the ice packs.
Design the polystyrene ice box.
Attach the bent copper pipe.
Attach aquarium pump to copper pipe.
Turn on to enjoy!

Step 1: Chill the Ice Pack

Chill the ice packs in the freezer compartment for over 12 hours and place them in the polystyrene ice box.
Wouldn't it be more efficient to simply run an air con unit? If you are freezing the water in a freezer first you are simply adding a layer of inefficiency.
