When Willis H.C. Carrier, the father of air-conditioning designed his first air conditioning system in 1902, his customer was a frustrated Brooklyn, N.Y. printer who couldn't print a decent color image because changes in heat and humidity kept changing the paper's dimensions and misaligning the colored inks.

For nearly two decades, Carrier's invention that allowed us to scientifically control the temperature and humidity of our indoor environment was meant for the comfort of machines or industrial processes rather than people. It wasn't until 1906 that Carrier, then employed by the Buffalo Forge Company, patented his first device - "An apparatus for Treating Air".

 

Southern U.S. textile mills were among the first users of Carrier's new system. A lack of moisture in the air of the Chronicle Cotton Mill in Belmont, N.C created excess static electricity that made cotton fibers become fuzzy and hard to weave. Carrier's system raised and stabilized humidity levels to eliminate the " fuzzies". It conditioned the fibers. The first overseas sale of Carrier system was made to a silk mill in Yokohama, Japan in 1907.

Encouraged by their success, Carrier and six friends scraped together $ 32,600 and formed the Carrier Engineering Company in 1915 - a company whose only product was a guarantee to achieve the temperature and humidity levels their customers required.

Carrier, the company, began manufacturing products in 1922 after the company's namesake developed one of the most significant achievements in the industry's history - the centrifugal refrigeration machine. The centrifugal chiller, or just plain centrifugal as many call it, was the first practical method of air conditioning large spaces. This single achievement paved the way for the upward expansion of cities as well as bringing human comfort to hospitals, schools office buildings, airports, hotels, and department stores.

Thus started the success story behind "Carrier" the company carrying the inventor's name. Carrier remains a pioneer and a leading establishment for air-conditioners for more than 75 years.
