I didn’t guess they had a/c 70 years ago.

When Grandpa plus I started talking about Heating plus Air Conditioning, I was interested in hearing more about his father being an Heating plus Air Conditioning serviceman.

Grandpa was almost eighty, so his father had to have been an Heating plus Air Conditioning serviceman almost 100 years ago, however i didn’t even guess they had a/c back then. Grandpa laughed plus told myself and others they had a/c in the 1890s, however no one could afford it. It was originally created to help out in factories. It was to kept the factories cool so there were fewer fires… Many people died because of the heat in the factories, plus ladies were locked in the basement to do their work, but hundreds of ladies plus children were trapped in those basements plus died… Air conditioning helped to cool the machinery plus made it safer to toil in factories. Air conditioning was soon installed in houses of the honestly rich plus influential, however it wasn’t until the early 1900s that it was section of every day life for many, then you could go into movie theatres plus appreciate an hour or so seeing movies, cartoons, or the news plus get some a/c. Many grocery stores installed a/c to keep their products fresh longer. He said Heating plus Air Conditioning wasn’t the same then as it is now, however it was just as important. He was proud that I had chosen to be an Heating plus Air Conditioning serviceman, the more I talked to Grandpa, the more I wished I had gotten to guess him better, not being around him for numerous years, could have cost myself and others never knowing one of the coolest people I have ever met.
