5 Interesting Facts about HVAC

The HVAC industry has a long and interesting history. From the Romans, who were civilized long before people realize, to the first commercial AC installation, people have always used technology to improve their local atmospheric conditions.

The Romans are the first civilization to have furnaces in their homes. This started as early as 1200 years B.C.! It wouldn’t be until 1902 for the first commercial installation of an air conditioning system. Willis Cater was the person to install it.

In the 1930s, people flocked to the movie theaters, but not necessarily for what was showing on the screen. Air conditioning at the cinema may have been as big a draw as any motion picture during the summer. It may have also helped create the idea of a summer blockbuster.

Families will spend, on average, $2000 on energy during a year. Half of that will go to supplying heat to the home or to make it cooler. You can help reduce your energy bills with a more efficient HVAC system and through improving the home’s insulation and caulking windows.

Changing the temperature of a building, especially when it fights against the weather outside, is energy intensive. The United States uses as much energy for air conditioning alone as the entire continent of Africa uses for all of its needs. That’s a lot of energy for a comparatively small area. By having regular maintenance on your HVAC system, you can help reduce that amount of energy, which will also reduce your bills and give you more money to spend on other things.
