Willis Carrier: The Inventor of Modern Air Conditioning
Genius can strike anywhere. For Willis Carrier, it was a foggy Pittsburgh train platform in 1902. Carrier stared through the mist and realized that he could dry air by passing it through water to create fog. Doing so would make it possible to manufacture air with specific amounts of moisture in it. Within a year, he completed his invention to control humidity – the fundamental building block for modern air conditioning.
With Weather Series Rooftop Units featuring EcoBlue™ Technology, Carrier is proving that not all rooftops are created equal. EcoBlue™ Technology includes a more compact vane axial fan, which is an industry first for packaged rooftop units, along with a simplified design that helps lower installation and maintenance costs. Turn to the experts today to learn more and see how we’ve put a whole new spin on rooftops.
