Air conditioning is something that has been around for a while now. What people do not know is that there is a complete history behind how this technology had come to be. It is important to learn its history and the events that led up to the creation of this to better understand how it works and why it was created in the first place. Now, that the internet is growing there is more information online to help people learn about this topic. Scholars and researchers have dabbed a little bit on the historical impact that this technology has had around the world and still does to this particular date. Below, are some brief facts and information regarding this technology for anyone who is interested and is wanting to know.
What Is It Used For?
Air conditioning has been utilized for the exact same purpose from when it was created which is relatively rare because often what happens is that technology is designed for something else, but then gets innovated and is used for an entirely different purpose. However, when it comes to the A/C, that is not the case at all. “It was always designed to cool air and make it easier for people who were living in warm weathers. The technology would take the hot air and cool it. Then it would project it into the room to cool the entire room which is something that they were able to do with the technology as there was a progression in engineers and the systems they were using to build this.” states Sam Christianson of Air Conditioning Vancouver.
The A/C to this date is still utilized for the same purpose, which sets it apart and makes it very different in comparison to other technologies that were created around the same time.
What Was It Inspired By?
Not many people know this, but the A/C was inspired by technology that had already existed in its time. People back in the day did not use an A/C because they did not have such a thing that was created. However, the creators of it were inspired by wind towers that were placed around their time. They took into consideration how those were made, which motivated them to try their project and see if they could domesticate that. They were able to do it, which made it so popular as it was effective.
What Year Was It First Used In Homes?
The year that people started to learn more about it and install it on their homes would be 1902. Before that there were a lot of tests that were going on, people were trying to figure out how to use and were mainly using it for commercial purposes. However, due to it not being very expensive and quite affordable over time, more and more people started to place these in their home making it very simple and easy. The affordability and convenience are why even though the A/C was introduced a little before 1902 it took some time to come over into the homes.
Overall, this is just a brief history of how air conditioners were made and how they came to be. These are one of the few technologies, which are still used for the same purpose that they were first made for. A lot of times technologies change their meaning over time as the target market changes, events and situations change. This is not the case with this, which is why it is so interesting to learn more about it and how it came to be. To learn even more you can do so online as there is so much information about A/C’s on the internet.
