So where did air conditioning for cars originate? Over a hundred years ago, AC was the last thing on auto makers’ minds. Simply manufacturing automobiles for the masses at relatively affordable prices was an accomplishment in itself. All the “modern conveniences” we take for granted today – power steering, heated seats, Bluetooth audio, navigation, tire pressure monitoring, and yes, air conditioning – were still a long way from becoming a reality.
But after a few decades, two things happened to automobiles that required automakers to consider air conditioning.
- They became more widespread. Essentially, cars migrated from their northern (Detroit and other rust belt cities) roots to other areas in the United States, including the hot & dry southwest and the steamy south.
- A closed cabin design became popular. The first vehicles were open air, so air conditioning wasn’t even a possibility during the 1910s through the 1930s. But as cars became larger, safer and better-equipped to handle families, the first thoughts of car AC were born – and with it, a revolutionary new system was about to change the way we viewed cars forever.
