  1. TIME says:

    you can do this without having to buy the coolbot. jus put the ac thermostat on the outside of the cooler (or disconnect it all together), then plug the ac into an electric socket timer that you buy for $10, and use a magnetic thermometer on the inside wall of cooler for temperature readings. done.

    hope this helps

    I built an 8' x 8' x8' high walkin cooler inside of a 45 foot insulated refridgerator trailer that is used to haul apples to California. I added 2 inches of insulation to the floor, walls and ceiling and have a 12000 btu unit AC, with Coolbot, and it keeps cool all year round. The larger area of the trailer we store squash in and keep it at 55 degrees with a 1500 watt heater! We have 10 acres so not in a neighborhood like you are. Just south of you at Lake Chelan!

    Another heads up!
    You can reduce the cooling costs associated with opening the door by keeping the cooler at least half full with solids.
    If your cooler is low on stock, store bottles of water or other solids in it.
    These significantly reduce the amount of cold air that escapes every time you open the door.
    It's the same with a domestic fridge. A fridge full of cooled produce loses less cold each time you open the door. So if your fridge is not fully ultilized, store water bottles or similar thermal sinks in it, especially in the lower compartments.
    This is off grid living 101.

    Love your channel and all your ideas unfortunately just be careful due to the fact of you Home insurance if you have it if they see this they can Cancel your insurance due to it it’s not running the proper way as you know there’s lots of little hidden fine print in insurances businesses this is nothing against you just helping like I said love your channel

  5. BOB K says:

    Two questions:
    1. Looks a bit Mickey mouse, any fire hazard from running standard AC too much?
    2. Won't you have to replace the overworked AC more often than a compressor?

  6. L. J. Bush says:

    I saw a video or two a year or so ago on how to do it without having to pay the high price of a cool-bot. Here is one of the videos: Best coolbot alternative diy walk in cooler , it's not neat as the one with the cool=bot but it is a lot cheaper and with a little ingenuity I think it could be made to be neat.

  7. MachineMaker says:

    If you're up for some more challenging diy, automotive ac is a LOT more cooling capacity than residential. A junk yard pull can be reassembled, recharged, and made to run from electric or gas motors.
