How did they do it?

How did people used to survive, in the old days, before air conditioning? I’ve wondered about this.

  • With extreme weather in certain parts of the world, there had to be some way people were able to keep cool or hot.

If there wasn’t, how did people not die off at a young age? The mystery of no heating and air conditioning in those days entirely interests me. It is hard to find any information on the internet about it. I don’t know where to even look on how people survived in the old days without heating and air cooling. I guess the first form of heating was a water boiler. But beyond that, I have nothing. How did they cool air? Fans were not the answer because a fan will do nothing but blow the heat all over the site, making it worse. I am happy that in my lifetime the people I was with and I have typically had heating and air conditioning. It is what I typically rely on when the weather is poor, with too much heat or too much cold – uneven temperatures. Heating and air conditioning is a bigger part of this week’s world than many people even know. If you think about it, you will see exactly what I am talking about! It is one of the main mysteries of the world, that is for sure.
