Re: Homemade Deer Cooler
Cut and pasted from website,use foam insulation NOT fiberglass
+Will this work cooling meat?
Yes! We now have thousands of meat folks including over 100 small commercial meat processing facilities using coolbots. Most of our meat folks are a few hunters who got together and invested in one. Obviously you have to size the a/c unit to the size of your walk-in cooler box as per our chart AND you have a walk-in cooler built to industry standard specifications (4" of styrofoam insulation in walls/floor/ceiling.) If you meet those requirements, the CoolBot will keep whatever your want (produce, flowers, meat, prepared food, dead bodies in mortuaries) at whatever you set it at down to 33 degrees. What the CoolBot can NOT do is: 1) Keep things frozen 2) Keep things cold when you have a substandard cooler or too small of an air conditioner.
I think because our units are so inexpensive, a surprising number of people try to approach the rest of the structure in an inexpensive way, too, so they build coolers with standard fiberglas-house insulation or even just use it to try to cool an unisulated storage room. It won't work! The fiberglass actually DOES work for awhile, but outside humidity condenses in the walls making the insulation sag and filling it with mold and mildew. So... use the thousands of dollars you save buying a Coolbot to insulate your cooler with styrofom insulation (it's not THAT expensive!). We sell to a lot of hunters and hunting camps as well as people who make hamburgers and other meat-containing prepared foods and they have been very happy with the performance of the CoolBot.
