In 1902, Willis Haviland Carrier in Buffalo, New York creates the first modern electrical air conditioning unit.  While working for the Buffalo Forge Company, Carrier grew bored with his everyday work.  He eventually experimented with air conditioning as a means to solve a problem for a publishing company.

Carrier’s design sought to improve control in a printing plant.  Instead of just controlling temperature, Carrier wanted desperately to control humidity, so that the ink in the printing plant wouldn’t run on paper.  Instead of sending air through hot coils with steam, he used cold water in coils.  The air blowing through the coils cooled the air (due to the cold water in the coil), thus controlling the humidity and the temperature in the surrounding area.  The low heat and humidity allowed for the ink to be properly aligned, allowing for the printing plant to become far more efficient than previously.  By 1928, air conditioning had reached refrigerators, thus changing the way that Americans preserve their food.
