Book 8: Chapter 68: Using Magic Air Conditioners will kill you
Another new year went by.
Before the festivities of the new year had gone, there was a piece of news that came from the Candra Empire that attracted everyones attention.
In early February, a small town near Clara City in the Candra Empires northern province suddenly blew up.
The citizens of the town suddenly fainted one day and it took them three days before they woke up again.
Although there werent any problems with these citizens after they woke up, this matter had created a stir in the Candra Empires northern province.
The northern provinces Governor Manor took this matter seriously and under the orders of the empires parliament, they started a detailed investigation into this matter.
Finally after various investigations, they found a surprising result.
The northern provinces Governor Manor had concluded that the reason for this mass fainting case were the Magic Air Conditioners that the families of the small town used.
The findings showed that because those Magic Air Conditioners had been used by those families for a long time, they slowly affected their environment and even changed the air that they breathed.
It was fine normally, but once it reached a certain level, people would temporarily lose consciousness because of it.
The citizens of the town didnt use their Magic Air Conditioners to the point where they reached the degree before, but because it was a long winter this year that was much colder than usual, they used their Magic Air Conditioners even more. It quickly reached a level where it became a problem which caused this mass fainting event.
Many people were still doubtful about this explanation.
According to the investigations, the citizens of the town all used the same brand of Magic Air Conditioners.
Of course it wasnt the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, but rather it was a Candra Empire company named the “Rita Household Magic Machine”.
These Magic Air Conditioners were all Rita Brand Magic Air Conditioners.
The doubts that people had was that the Rita Household Magic Machine Chamber of Commerce was one of the top three household magic machine companies in the Candra Empire. According to the information the Rita Household Magic Machine Chamber of Commerce released before, they sold over a hundred thousand Rita Brand Magic Air Conditioners last year alone, most of which were sold in the Candra Empire.
Because the Rita Household Magic Machine Chamber of Commerce was a local Candra Empire company, they naturally received special care. So in the Candra Empire, there were many places where the Rita Brand Magic Air Conditioner had a monopoly like this town.
The problem was why did the other places not have any problems Why did only this place have a problem
The northern provinces Governor Manor had used an entire month to investigate this to give further details.
It turned out that the reason why the Rita Brand Magic Air Conditioners in this town caused problems was because this town used a new magic energy supply technology.
In most household magic machines that people used before, the household magic machines were loaded with high concentration Magic Crystals to provide the magic energy needed to operate it.
This had been set since the founding of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce and even after thirty years, it was still the standard configuration for most magic machines on the continent.
However, at the beginning of last year, the Frestech Chamber of Commerces magic research facility had proposed a new type of power supplying technology.
This technology used large Magic Crystals as supply stations and then through magic transfer technology, the magic energy would be directly connected to various magic machines through special methods.
There were countless benefits to this new method.
For example, by using this new magic energy supplying technology, people no longer needed to buy high concentration Magic Crystals to power their various household magic machines.
Since the Magic Crystals were in solid form, for different household magic machines, they required different shapes and sizes, so it was quite troublesome to buy them.
With this new energy supplying method, they could save themselves a bit of trouble. They just needed to pay a fee to the magic energy supply stations and they would be able to get magic energy at any time.
Moreover, because the magic energy supply stations have a new method of handling these Magic Crystals, it allowed maximum use of the energy contained within which made Magic Crystals more efficient.
So even if part of it was consumed when transferring the magic energy, compared to the magic energy that was wasted when magic machines werent used, this new method was much more effective in consuming magic energy.
Because of this and the fact that it was cheaper using this method, it would allow people to spend less money on these magic machines.
Other than this, using this new method of magic energy transfer would also increase the operational stability of magic machines. It would avoid harming the lifespan and performance of magic machines because they bought non standard or inferior Magic Crystals.
Although this method had its flaws, such as the magic energy supplying equipment being fixed and wasnt as easy to transport as before, there were far more benefits compared to the flaws.
So after the Frestech Chamber of Commerce proposed this last year, they received praise by everyone like anything else the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had done before.
The Frestech Chamber of Commerce chose to cooperate with several countries and chose pilot spots in these countries, testing this new method of supplying magic energy.
This small town was one of those spots.
After this event, the northern provinces Governor Manor found after their investigation that the main reason for the problem with the Magic Air Conditioners was this new magic energy supplying method.
The investigations concluded that because of the magic energy supplies and the densely crossed magic energy supply lines, it created a special frequency in the magic space. This created this large effect on these Magic Air Conditioners which caused the mass fainting event.
After the northern provinces Governor Manor published this, there was an uproar.
Most peoples first reaction was that they didnt believe it.
Since the Frestech Chamber of Commerce invented the Magic Air Conditioner, over twenty years had already passed. In all these years, with countless people in countless countries using the Magic Air Conditioner, why did such a thing never happen and it only happened this time
So people began looking at the Rita Brand Magic Air Conditioners with doubtful gazes.
Over ten years ago, there was only the Frestech Brand Magic Air Conditioners. Other Magic Air Conditioners like the Rita Brand had only appeared in the most recent years.
When the Frestech Brand Magic Air Conditioners were used by countless people, these problems never happened.
Now that a problem had happened with the Rita Brand Magic Air Conditioner, it had to be the Rita Brand Magic Air Conditioners fault!
But the northern provinces Governor Manors results were published in the major newspapers and dispelled this guess.
According to the investigations, what caused the accident was the Magic Air Conditioner itself and was unrelated to the company that manufactured it.
The reason was that the Magic Air Conditioner had a Magic Air Compressor unit in it. So whether it was used for heating or cooling, the magic energy provided by the Magic Crystals would affect the air, creating the cold breeze or the warm wind.
So what affected the air in the environment was this compressor and not the company that made it.
Even if the town had used the Frestech Brand Magic Air Conditioner, the same thing would have happened.
This created a stir that had even shocked the entire continent.
For most people, the Frestech Chamber of Commerces magic machines were of the highest quality and had the best performance.
Although they would hear about some small problems with the Frestech Chamber of Commerces magic machines from time to time, that was only individual cases and couldnt be blamed on the Frestech Chamber of Commerce itself.
But this time, the biggest problem was the Magic Air Compressor in the Magic Air Conditioner!
It had to be known that although the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had long spread the technology for the Magic Air Conditioner, making it so that many companies on the continent could also make Magic Air Conditioners.
Until now, there was only one company that could make the Magic Air Compressor which was the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
This meant that whether it was a Frestech Brand or Rita Brand Magic Air Conditioner, the Magic Air Compressor which could be considered the core came from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
But now this small part actually had such a hidden danger. There was no doubt that this would have a large effect on the prestige of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
People were naturally worried about this. If the Magic Air Conditioner made by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had this kind of hidden danger, would the other magic machines have the same hidden dangers
If it was like this, wouldnt that mean that they could be knocked out without knowing a thing by using magic machines
Moreover, according to the results of the investigations of the northern provinces Governor Manor, if this had become more serious, lives might have even been lost!
You could lose your life from using Magic Air Conditioners
This terrifying possibility had changed the expressions of everyone who had received this news.
It was only the Magic Air Conditioners that had problems now, but if other problems occurred with other magic machines, what could they do
When choosing between the household magic machines that could make life more comfortable and your own life, what would most people choose-
