The history of “creature comfort” has progressed extensively throughout the ages. The caveman could probably never even fathom an automated system, and “auto-fire,” that would automatically turn on and keep his corner of the earth, his cave warm to his liking. Even in more modern times, drafty homes were typical and battling to stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer was a day’s work. Lucky for us postmoderns, most of us enjoy comfortable warm homes in the winter and cool homes in the summer due largely to HVAC systems and building automation.
As an HVAC company, we are hyper-aware (obviously) of how greatly building management HVAC systems affect all us on a day to day basis. As with many of our modern conveniences, the significance of even having an HVAC system and automated system is greatly overlooked because it is commonplace. The HVAC automated system is the “child” of years of innovation by multiple people.
