Fresh Air came into being as a result of many building projects requiring much needed ventilation solutions in the late 1980’s. It began with the installation of the world famous ‘Whirlybird’ turbine ventilator on labourer’s cottages to prevent the formation of fungal growth, the yearly treatment and repainting thereof. This method solved the problem and with it began the evaporative cooling method of cooling space and cleaning air. ‘Fresh Air’ was launched.
The natural progression was involvement with conventional air conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation. From these disciplines came the dehumidification, humidification and central vacuum systems. There is more than a single solution to many of the cooling, cleaning & heating challenges, resultantly we investigated the high pressure misting systems for cooling and dust removal and the Thermoshield heat barrier method of insulating, finding both methods efficient and well suited to specific applications.
Ozone treatment of both air and water has become more widely used, due to it’s economic and physical properties. We use these systems to prevent ‘Sick building’ syndrome within our larger air conditioning systems. A number of projects ranging from nature reserves to provincial hospitals and larger retail outlets country wide followed. We were instrumental in the design stages of many of these projects which have come to successful completion and are in constant operation.
We have trained local, previously disadvantaged labour from zero knowledge to current status where they are able to not only carry out the installation, but also to plan the methods of installation & trouble shoot many problems which may arise. The training education also focuses on the importance of conservation and social responsibility, stressing the need to achieve our goals with least impact on our environment. We strive to find eco friendly ways in which to improve the working conditions of our customers and ourselves, by constantly embracing new technologies which are being developed.
