As you’re basking in the cool of your AC while temperatures soar outside, did you ever stop to think about the history of home cooling? The first attempts at building an AC unit date all the way back to the 19th century. In the U.S., a Florida doctor was the first person to build a device that could keep indoor temperatures cool, but his invention died when he couldn’t find financial backers. By 1914, home air conditioning was available, but the high prices of the units made them accessible by only the very wealthy. It wasn’t until the 1950s when air conditioning became the norm in private homes. This infographic, created by our AC repair company in Austin, details the evolution of the air conditioner.
