How People Kept Cool Before Air Conditioners
So, what did people use to cool down before air conditioners? Their lives must have been unbearable during long hot summers. Or were they?
As it turns out they got by just fine and used a variety of solutions, as you’ll see. When Willies Carrier invented what we would know as an air conditioner in 1902, it wasn’t his intention to cool your home. These early AC machines were designed for use in industrial quality control. The ever increasing drive for steel and glass skyscrapers soon created the need for AC applications to make them possible to work in.
