A/C Facts We Find “Cool”!

Air conditioners get a lot of attention this time of year. To make sure you know everything you need to have a properly functioning one, here’s three cool facts you should know about A/C!

The First A/C Unit Was Almost TOO Cold!

In 180 AD a Chinese engineer in Han Dynasty China invented the very first proto-air conditioner. According to the Miscellaneous Records of the Western Capital, this man created an insanely large air-conditioning fan consisting of seven 3-metre wide fans, all connected so they would move together with the turning of a wheel. It even cooled a hall of Chinese courtiers so impressively that ‘people would even begin to shiver’. 

A/C Increased Human Life Expectancy!

The invention of air conditioning had a profound impact on human life expectancy. A lot of the medications we use today couldn’t have been invented without a scientific laboratory which has to be equipped with temperature-sensitive tools and equipment and the ability to control air temperature. Which has helped doctors make world-changing advances in medicine, everything from medicines to inhibit bacteria, defeat malaria, and certain cancer treatments… not to mention developments in surgery alone! It’s crazy to think that certain illnesses could have never been cured without air conditioning! 

A/C Maintenance is IMPORTANT!

Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to the development of infections, chronic lung diseases, and worsened allergies. When your HVAC system isn’t properly maintained, dust levels in your home can rise which can also lead to an increased amount of dust mites. Your HVAC system can decrease the amount of dust mites and help improve the quality of the air inside of your home, but only if it’s properly maintained!
