On a warm summer day July 17, 1902, the world got a whole lot cooler.
It was this day that inspiration struck Willis Carrier, and modern air conditioning was invented. His concept would evolve to enlarge the climates humans could functionally live and work.
In honor of the miracle of air conditioning, we celebrate July 17 annually as National Air Conditioning Day.
We invite you to sit back in your recliner and toast the 70-degree indoor comfort Willis Carrier invented for you.
