In this modern age, we live with so much technology that we can control virtually anything in our homes with a smartphone app. Did you know that todays smartphones are more powerful than the computer that first sent man to the moon?
We can control lights, heating and even see who is ringing our doorbell with our smartphones. Technology has also helped us to stay in touch with friends and family over the last year, when due to the global pandemic we have not been able to meet up with them physically.
Life has become increasingly easier in the home thanks to the ingenuity of inventors who have created things which have ended up becoming part of our basic home essentials – here are a few things which changed the way we live our lives at home…
Central Heating – The first heating is thought to have been invented by the Romans who invented underfloor heating. But modern central heating was created by an American inventor called Birdsill Holly. Today we would struggle without our modern heating systems and when it breaks down we simply call someone like this boiler repair Gloucester based company HPR services to come and put it right for us.
Deep Freeze- Many people experimented with lowering temperatures artificially to preserve food, but the freezer as we know it did not start to become a part of the home until the 1950s, when the technology was made suitable for the home.
