What you are going to need;

  • Measuring tape
  • Screwdriver
  • Screws
  • Wood
  • Saw
  • Caulk
  • Mesh
  • Your first step;

    Measuring your window.  Now before you even think about making a screen you are going to have to know the size in which you are going to need the screen to be; you are going to have to measure.  You take your tape and start to measure the area of the window but remember to note the area down; try to do this a few times so you don’t make a mistake.  You are going to need to create your frame so that it is going to fit the window perfectly.

    • Your Second Step;

    You are going to have to construct the actual frame.  You are going to need a long piece of wood and cut it into the same length vertically and horizontally but you are going to need two of each length so if you measured out thirty inches by fifteen then you are going to have to measure and cut out two thirty inches of wood and then fifteen inches of wood.  Sometimes you are going to need more than one piece of wood but they are easy to pick up though.

    When you cut the wood try to make it a little bigger and place them up to the window and make sure you can fit them into the frame of the window until they are tight enough.  Take all of your wood and affix them together; you could do this by screwing them into place that would be the easier option.

    • Your third Step;

    You are going to have to cut the mesh once you have constructed the frame together.  You should make sure that the mesh is going to be big enough so that it is going to cover the frame.  You should measure it out and make it a little bigger just in case before you cut; place the mesh over the frame and then cut the amount of the mesh you are going to need.  You want the mesh to be a great fitting for your evaporative air cooler.

    Take your mesh tool and then place the mesh into the frame and make sure it stays there by using screws.

    • Your fourth Step;

    You are going to need to fit the frame; this is simple, pick up your frame and push it right into the window frame as much as you can and then put the mesh over your evaporative air cooler.  You can put it into the frame by using some screws to securely place it; take your caulk and outline all around the edge of the screen.

    • Your fifth and last step;

    Your screen for the evaporative air cooler should be easy to do; you take the previous steps but taking the lengths shorter than before.  You should take the length of the air cooler and work from that.  It could mean that you don’t get any cold air or drafts into your home.
