Living in the modern times is a blessing in many ways. When we look back at the way our ancestors lived, we certainly feel grateful about the various developments and innovations in technology. Science is indeed a marvellous field.
Every invention that man has ever made has always been done with the idea of making human life easier. The very first machines, be it the blunt stone tools or the wheel, the idea behind every one of them was to reduce manual effort. Several centuries later, the world we live in today has developed so much that we have a machine for anything and everything.
Let’s take a look at some of the most genius inventions that science has given to the average homeowner.
Man’s need for protection against the bitter cold started with the invention of fire in the early stone ages. Today, we have electrically operated Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning units that provide us with the much needed warmth/cool.
HVAC units are large systems which take in air through filters, use coils to alter its temperature and then blow it out through a vent. If you care for your HVAC unit, take a look at our Checklist for HVAC maintenance.
