The Invention Of The Air Conditioner

Imagine it is the middle of July and the temperature outside is over 100 degrees. Fortunately, you are staying nice and cool thanks to the concept of air conditioning, or A/C as it is known today. The modern air conditioner unit is responsible for keeping millions of people comfortable through the worst of summer’s wrath. However, that has not always been the case. As little as 110 years ago, the concept of A/C had not been realized.

The “Father of Modern Air Conditioning” was Willis Carrier. Born in Angola, New York, in 1876, William Carrier grew up understanding how hot it could get working in factories during the summer. After he graduated from Cornell University in 1901, he went to work for Buffalo Forge Company. One day in 1902, Carrier was standing on a train platform in Pittsburgh watching the fog coalesce around the train platform. When suddenly it struck him, if he could dry air by cooling with it with water, then that might create mist and control the amount of moisture in the air. This idea lead to the cooling of warm air and modern air conditioning was born! By 1903, he had the air conditioning system installed into the Buffalo Forge Company.. His “Apparatus for Treating Air” was patented in 1906, and the rest as they say is history.

Without the genius of Willis Carrier, who knows how long people would have had to suffer through the heat of the summer months. Fortunately, his genius struck at the perfect time in history and all of the elements came together at just the right time. So, the next time you are setting in your cool home during the summer, try to give a thought and thanks to Willis Carrier the “Father of Modern Air Conditioning.”
