Experts in Building Environments™
The Governair brand has been an industry leader in the design and manufacture of HVAC systems since its founding in 1937. From the first window air conditioning units to bear the Governair name to the world-class, integrated air handling systems engineered today, the Governair brand is both a pioneer and standard bearer in the HVAC market.
We have a strong history of innovating robust, custom solutions to solve real-world challenges. As one of the first companies to pursue the idea that a total-system approach was an efficient and cost-effective method of climatizing a large structure, Governair’s engineers were the originators of the first package concept system. Already nationally recognized for quality products, Governair left a defining mark on the industry in 1942 by patenting the first self-contained, water-cooled air conditioning unit ever built for commercial use. Today the commercial and industrial air handlers manufactured by the Governair brand continue our commitment to flexibility, quality, and value.
The Governair location is also the home of the Nortek Air Solutions Acoustic and Thermal R&D Laboratory.
