This man made a very important invention for his beloved dog. He has a 13 years old Labrador who is facing a big problem in summer because of the high temperature, so his owner invented an Air Conditioned bed, and luckily, he pictured every step, and he documented it in his own words. You can now follow the steps so you can make this bed for your dog.
First Step: He used 1 x 6 boards for the frame, and then he cut out the holes, fit the 4″ PVC piping for the air inlet. The fit is very snug so he didn’t need to use anything to fasten or glue the pipe to the frame.
Second Step: He took an old PC power supply and mounted to the frame, and then he added the fans to the inside of the air inlet. Also, beer
-Third Step: Frame/plenum, power supply, fans, and cooling duct inlet in place
– Fourth Step: He finished the cooling duct by using a T fitting and wrapping it around the corner of the frame. He drilled a couple of holes and used some long zip-ties to hold the pipe to the frame, then he got some mesh plant shade material from the local big box home improvement store and some fabric fasteners to secure it to the frame
-Fifth Step: He stretched the fabric really tight across the frame and secured with the fabric fasteners. My dog is over 100 lbs. so the fabric had to be super tight. Also, it will stretch over time and it has to suspend the dog off the ground. Staples won’t work. Don’t even try. Use the fasteners.
– Sixth Step: Using the T fitting on the corner gave me a second cooling port from which to load the tube with frozen water bottles. The fans draw air through the port with the slots; the ice bottles cool the air. It’s a simple swamp cooler
Finally it works pretty well. Surprisingly this bed can cool the air by about 10 degrees and provides a nice breeze for the dog’s tummy. This bed is comfortable for old aged dogs.
What he did is pretty amazing, it’s very kind of him how he made such effort to make his dog feel happier and more comfortable, he is a great inventor, and he loves his pet very dearly. Share this amazing invention now.
