When Grandfather plus I started talking about Heating, Ventilation and A/C, I was interested in hearing more about his father being an Heating, Ventilation and A/C professional, but grandfather was almost eighty, so his father had to have been an Heating, Ventilation and A/C professional almost 100 years ago; I didn’t even guess they had air conditioner back then.
Grandfather laughed plus told me they had air conditioner in the 1890s, however no 1 could afford it.
It was originally created to help out in factories. It was to kept the factories cool so there were fewer fires, then many people died because of the heat in the factories, plus men were locked in the basement to do their work; Hundreds of men plus children were trapped in those basements plus died; Air conditioning helped to cool the machinery plus made it safer to work in factories. Air conditioning was soon installed in houses of the genuinely rich plus influential, however it wasn’t until the early 1900s that it was area of every day life for many, however you could go into movie theatres plus love an hour or so watching movies, cartoons, or the news plus get some air conditioner. Many grocery stores installed air conditioner to keep their products fresh longer. He said Heating, Ventilation and A/C wasn’t the same then as it is now, however it was just as crucial. He was proud that I had chosen to be an Heating, Ventilation and A/C professional, then the more I talked to Grandfather, the more I wished I had gotten to guess him better. Not being around him for several years, could have cost me never knowing 1 of the coolest people I have ever met.
