The History of AC Installation

At what point can we officially consider the winter weather to be gone? If two week’s worth of 60 degree weather doesn’t do it, then I don’t know what will. As the temperature outside increases, the temperature in homes across the country slowly decreases. And since it never really felt like winter in Northern Virginia, it seems that most folks around here will have no problem welcoming the warm summer months.

Fortunately, with the use of modern AC installation, those summer months are bearable. But where did AC come from?

The earliest forms of AC installation can be dated back to 1758.

Benjamin Franklin was one of the first to test the modern AC by using evaporation methods to extract the heat from various liquids. While his discovery never quite formed itself into real air conditioning, it did pave the way for AC installation and future inventors. In 1820, Michael Faraday use cooled ammonia as a form of air conditioning, but when his main financial backer passed away, he was left penniless and the pursuit of domestic AC installation would be left untouched for another 50 years.

Finally in 1902, Willis Carrier created the first working AC unit and installed it in a printing plant to help control the quality of his paper and the consistency of his ink. As demand grew for AC installation, The Carrier Air Conditioning Company of America was born, and the 1950s saw a surge in modern AC installation across America.

Modern AC installation has come a long way since the 1900s and continues to evolve into more efficient and more powerful methods of cooling.
