In July, 1902 when Willis Carrier submitted plans for what would become the world's first modern day air conditioning system; he sparked an industry that revolutionized the way in which we live, work and play. A few years later in January 1906, Carrier was granted the U.S. patent on his "air conditioning system" which he named an "Apparatus for Treating Air". In later years with further research, design and modifications of his 1902 system; Carrier gave birth to the air conditioning industry with additions to his design incorporating humidity control and ultimately defining the basic functions & controls of all HVAC systems:
- Temperature Control
- Humidity Control
- Air Circulation and Ventilation Control
- Air Cleaning/Purification
Carrier Air Conditioning Company is dedicated to protecting the environment in which we live, using only the most modern production and high quality materials that can be recycled after use. Beginning in 2000 to 2008, in both the U.S. and Europe; Carrier has dutifully reduced its air emissions by 56 percent while simultaneously reducing water usage by 39 percent. In 2006, the company implemented environmental policies resulting in an 18 percent reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases. In 2008, Carrier's Montluel, France, facility became the first industrial site in the country to use 100 percent green electricity from renewable sources.
