Summer is officially here and with it comes high temperatures and oppressive humidity. For that, it’s a boon to have a home with centralized air conditioning. We have American inventor Willis Carrier for the advent of modern air conditioning, thanks to his creating the first large-scale electrical unit way back in 1902. So while you think about how lucky the civilized world is for Carrier having the wherewithal to come up with such a great device, here are a few Garden City residences whose owners and guests are undoubtedly grateful for the advent of centralized air conditioning.
