    There are 3 different apparatus designed to cool air in buildings:

    -The evaporative drip cooler, invented by Charles Oscar Palmer in 1908, although the history of evaporative cooling dates back to medieval times.

    -The Diffusion/Absorption process, invented by Alexander Langsdorf in 1936

    -and the compressor driven type, commonly used in most countries was invented by Willis Carrier in 1902.
