Of course, window a/cs are much smaller and more powerful today, but it is cool to know that even our Grandparents could have had a window a/c in their own homes
When I consider new technology, I am often astounded. Because we have come a long way in the last 100 years, and I really can’t wait to see what they come up with in the future. My favorite types of technology are self-explanatory and practical inventions. One of the great examples of this is the window a/c. A long time ago, when something new was invented, only the rich and fancy could afford to have the new thing, and luxuries were only for the wealthy. So when the central a/c was first invented, I would imagine that only the rich had a central a/c; Even this very year, it isn’t cheap to purchase a central a/c, and most of the poor people can’t afford 1 of those a/cs. However, there are still ways for the less wealthy people to have an a/c. Window a/cs are a great example, because you can purchase a ton of cheap window a/cs for your home for much cheaper than a central a/c, and you can still cool your whole home. Even I have a window a/c in my room, and I only paid $120 for it. It is great. I figured that the window a/c was a pretty new invention, but I was surprised to learn that the window a/c was developed in the 1950s. Of course, window a/cs are much smaller and more powerful today, but it is cool to know that even our Grandparents could have had a window a/c in their own homes. I am happy that somebody thought to invent the window a/c.
