Reddy’s Whole-house Air Conditioning Ad – 1968

It’s been a rough summer up here on the North Coast, what with all the days above 90º so far. Thank goodness for my favorite invention of all time: air-conditioning. I don’t think I could survive without it. How we kept cool with fans (which I explored in this post from 2011) I’ll never know.

Way back in March of 1968 (when the above ad ran in the Lorain Journal), our old pal Reddy Kilowatt warned us that there’d be days like this. My favorite electric sprite advocated the installation of electric whole-house air conditioning (which ironically is what I have).

Anyway, heres hoping that you are staying comfortable this summer. Hey, maybe it’s time for a Kool-Pop!
