Warming Up: A Canadian History of Automated Heating and Social Change

Creator(s): HVACR Heritage Canada Centre

Indoor heating played a significant yet under recognized role in the social and economic life of Canadians over the past 300 years. This exhibit endeavours for the first time to describe the evolution of heating from open fires to automated, enclosed-fire, central systems that began to appear around Canada's first birthday in 1867 - and dramatically changed the family, social, and economic life of this new dominion.
