We’re very proud of our Haier Thermocool ACs range and like to think that they are fairly amazing and innovative (hopefully you’ll agree!). We can’t quite go as far as to claim that we invented the air conditioner though. No, that impressive claim belongs to former New York native, Willis Carrier.
In 1902, a 25 year old Carrier found himself working at the Sackett-Wilhelms Lithographing & Publishing Company, where a recurring issue of ink running due to heat inspired him to submit initial designs of what would become the modern day Haier Thermocool AC, which one can now find mounted on a wall in many properties across Nigeria.
In many ways, we like to think that we’re carrying on his great legacy by providing solutions for businesses small and large.
Chilling at the Movies
The AC wasn’t a common feature in most homes overnight though. In fact people used to escape to the cinema during the very hot summers to enjoy the ACs that some of the bigger cinema chains of the time could afford. As a bit of trivia for you, this is where the term “Summer Blockbuster” comes from. Summer was a brilliant time for films, in large part because people needed to stay cool.
Luckily, with our Haier Thermocool ACs , you can stay cool from the comfort of your own home whilst taking in your favourite film using one of our energy saving Thermocool TVs.
Keeping School Cool
And you know those long summer holidays that your kids enjoy? That tradition also began due to heat. Schools were seen as being far too hot for kids to endure, and a break was given until the cooler September/October months. Although, oddly enough, despite vast technological advancements, this is one tradition that teachers and students alike don’t seem as keen on moving on from.
