Topic of Discussion

Air Conditioning:  A Look Into the Past and a Guess Into the Future

Starting with a brief historical review, and some of the trends in research, predictions are made as to what the future might be in air conditioning for human comfort. The presentation could be considered “technically entertaining.” Suggesting the fallacies of predictions, it shows the historical delays from defining a concept to the marketing of an actual product. The implications to our industry are noted as well.
