Things are heated – and not just politics, the pandemic and social unrest. It’s the weather. In August’s dog days, many in the northern hemisphere give thanks for air conditioning. There’s an engineer to thank for this life-changing innovation. In 1902, Willis Haviland Carrier invented the first modern AC unit.
AC’s gotten even “cooler” since then, thanks to technology.
American Society of Mechanical Engineering’s Executive Director/CEO Tom Costabile, says smart home tech is keeping us cooler with less effort. “Basic artificial intelligence is being built into home thermostats which can optimize home HVAC use based on user behavior.”
