The Unexpected History Of The Air Conditioner

Post by Riddick » 06-27-2019 01:52 AM


The short version of the story is that Willis Carrier invented air conditioning in 1902, founded the Carrier Corporation, which still makes air conditioners to this day, and changed our way of living and dealing with the environment.

The more detailed story of air conditioning is about how long it took the public to believe it, accept it, and then to become dependent on it. That story began way before Carrier. Read all about it here.
