With our luck, now that we have an Air Conditioner the summer will be over, no more heat and we will have no use for the Air Conditioner we bought yesterday but the fact that it physically sucked the humidity out of our living areas in less than one hour yesterday is truly a testament to modern technology. While A/C may not be a technology that I would ever really think about…after the sweltering heat this week I wanted to give a great big shout out to those who have helped make this 109 year old technology both affordable and capable of changing our lives!
Thank you to the men and women who build, design, repair and service the A/C Units for all of us. Your efforts and skills may go unnoticed most of the year but on those HOT days of July and August…forever more I will remember your story.
If you would like to see the abridged history of the Air Conditioner or other great engineering achievements of the 20th Century, head over to http://www.greatachievements.org/ an interesting site.
