Can you imagine going through an entire summer without the comfort of a cool, air-conditioned room? For many of us, the answer is a big, resounding no. But did you know that man’s attempts to keep his homes cooler than the outside temperature have been going on since ancient times?
Studies have shown that ancient Egyptians used to hang wet cloths in their doorways to keep their houses cool even when it was hot outside. Similarly, wealthy Roman citizens constructed aqueducts in their homes to circulate water and keep the temperature down. However, it was only in 1902 that Willis Haviland Carrier invented the first modern air conditioner.
