In our society, we like controlled environments. We’ve designed our homes to beat back the frigid cold of Winter and the extreme heat of Summer.

Summer is coming on strong. Perhaps you have an area of your home that your central air doesn’t quite reach. Perhaps you don’t have central air at all when a heat wave hits, and all the floor or window AC units are sold out. Or perhaps you simply want to cut back on the main electric bill.

Whatever your scenario, Youtube user “desertsun02” has come to the rescue by making this video. He uses a supplemental, ice-based design that’s not only practical and easy to construct, but only costs $30 to make and is solar powered. How’s that for a simple Summer solution?
