You can't afford a large air
conditioning unit or the one you can
afford is so crapolicious that you may
as well take hits off of it to keep cool.
This product will give that budget a
The larger model, is a tent in which
you can fit your bed (mattress, air
etc.) and shelf for the
TV. The air conditioning unit has a
fitted opening for it in the tent that
adjusts to different size units and
also comes with an adjustable size
pipe with plastic expanse so you can
keep the AC unit on the floor and run
the exhaust to the window instead.
tent opening also leaves room for as
many electric cords that you want to
use since it is adjustable. Being a
breathable tent some leakage will
occur but it will raise the efficiency of
your unit. Large size, 240 cubic feet,
any AC unit will be considered a
Smaller size, is a tent in which you
can fit a sleeping bag or mini cot.
Straps onto a mini fridge. (Mini
fridge is cheaper to buy because
college seniors are always looking to
get rid of their mini fridges.) Less
adjusting, close door and turn off fan
when you no longer need cold air.
Keeping freezer packs helps the

||Fog, I was actually thinking along
the lines of one of my other tent
ideas along with my actual
working AC unit. I know it's
working, because the fool thing is
C Trebor, I'm talking about a
simple idea that is affordable or
makes your existing idea more
||I don't know exactly where I read it but it is the same thing, but completly different: I live in Sweden and during winters it can be very cold. If you have a longer powerout during winter, then you will loose your indoor temperature quite quickly.
These days we rely quite heavily on electric heating, and many houses and apartments do not have oilheaters or fireplaces.
So, rather than freezing your ass of, rise a tent indoor so you have a much smaller volume of air to heat up with your body and candles.
||C Trebor, the size of the tent you
are talking about is way larger, it's
material is different, the AC
unit is waaaaaayy more powerful
(because the temperature you are
talking about is 0º C,) and it's
Waaaaayyy*10^4 more expensive.
My idea is much more cost
effective. Let me translate the link
you sent me for you. The cost of
the unit you are talking about is
(according to your link) 65k US
dollars or 50,000 CHF.
If you wanna sleep in a multi-
thousand dollar freezer, then be
my guest but don't say that I told
you to do it. My idea is the
warmer region of what Noss was
||I have to say, I fell for that line
"chill out" hook line and sinker,
perhaps 'cause its really hot here
and I wish that AC unit of mine
would really work.
Actually, if I had the monitary
funds I would totally love one of
the tents that you linked to. And a
couple of those microprosessor
