I can’t even imagine what it would be like to live here without the comfort of central a/c.
I had no idea that at the turn of the 20th century, basic Heating & A/C was born. Of course, it was not like the residential Heating & A/C or the commercial Heating & A/C that my buddy and I love everyday now. But that was the start of the basic cooling process that our heat pump uses right now, but more than a hundred & ten years ago, cooling was invented. It revolutionized so several things across our industrialized world. First, it was storing food which was indeed revolutionary. But by being able to move heat energy from one point to another to allow colder air to occupy that same space, Heating & A/C was also born. First, there were commercial Heating & A/C applications. I’m in my mid fifties & I can remember my dad telling me stories about a/c. He was a little kid when his mom & dad drove into the nearest town just to experience the commercial Heating & A/C in a store. By the mid 50’s, residential Heating & A/C was coming online & the heat pump era was born anew. These days, I’m still amazed at the combination of physics & engineering that allows me to love a/c this Summer. I live in a region where the uneven temperatures & the humidity skyrocket from July through September. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to live here without the comfort of central a/c. Plus, when the weather gets colder, the heat pump can supply us all the heating my buddy and I need. It simply reverses the refrigerant flow & brings heating energy from the air outside into the house. What’s even more incredible is that so several of us take our residential Heating & A/C miracle for granted all the time.
