|Press Release: U.S. Census Bureau : U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature for July 22: Chilling OutWASHINGTON, July 22, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:CHILLING OUTProfile America - Saturday, July 22nd. With the nation's average hottest day of the year coming up next week, many of us welcome ducking into a cool office, business or home. For this relief, we can thank Willis Carrier, who in the depths of winter in 1906 received a patent for what he called an "apparatus for treating air." He launched his own company 102 years ago this month, and the Carrier name is still prominent among air-conditioning manufacturers. The invention did not come into widespread use until after World War II. Even by 1965, only 10 percent of homes in the United States were equipped, and just 2.8 million window air conditioners were manufactured that year. Today, 93 percent of all new, single-family houses in the United States are air-conditioned.
