According to a news story in HartfordBusiness.com (a publication of Hartford Business Journal) dated July 3, Farmington heating and cooling manufacturer, Carrier Corp, is celebrating the 110th anniversary of the invention of air conditioning.

Willis Carrier, the founder of Carrier, invented the first way to control humidity in a New York printing plant on July 17, 1902, the news story elaborated.

Carrier, a research engineer at the time, finalised the design to keep humidity in the air constant at the Sackett & Williams Lithography and Printing Company in Brooklyn, it added.

To celebrate the milestone, Carrier, the company, reportedly, launched a new web site – www.WillisCarrier.com – about the inventor’s life and work.
