The invention of the portable a/c is entirely interesting.
- I know all about it because my good Grandfather is the one who built the first prototype.
My Grandfather was one of the few Heating plus A/C professionals of his time. In those days, only the wealthy had an a/c, plus most homes were either heated by a fireplace or a wood stove boiler. My good Grandfather was a superb acquaintance of the Heating plus A/C professional who built the first window a/c plus he wanted to contribute to the Heating plus A/C industry in some way. He built the first portable a/c prototype, plus it was liked by Heating plus A/C designers. His portable a/c design began being built, plus sold in markets around the world. My good Grandfather also built plus contributed to several other Heating plus A/C units like the portable space heater, the hydronic heating system plus later in his life, the first smart thermostat. My Grandfather saw the rise in the Heating plus A/C industry, plus knew there would soon need to be a special business dedicated to the sale of Heating plus A/C units, so he started the first cooling plus heating company where he sold portable space heaters, a/cs, parts for wood boilers, plus even air filters. His cooling plus heating business became the model for all cooling plus heating companies that started after. By the end of my good Grandpa’s life. He had started six heating plus cooling businesses, plus invented a portable a/c, new central a/c, plus the first simple smart thermostat. There is an Heating plus A/C museum with an entire section dedicated to my good Grandfather.
