This year Aircare is celebrating a quarter of a century as a provider of high quality HVAC, mechanical and refrigeration engineered solutions.

Aircare evolved from a small single office with three staff in 1990 to our current city centre offices and workshops with fifteen employees. Over the years Aircare has seen major changes with the development of heat pumps, alternative cooling and heating systems, and environmental engineering with the main focus being energy use reduction.

“There have been massive changes with technology and market forces, however Aircare has retained the original customer focused service attitude, personal service, high skill base and independence that have been, and continue to be, the key to Aircare’s success”

The client required a drying system incorporating biomass hot water boilers to reduce the drying time of various biomass fuels and provide grain drying during harvest times.

Aircare designed and installed a heating and dehumidification system that is capable of supplying 24 m3/s of warm dry air to the biomass fuel and grain drying areas.  The systems incorporate 100kW heating coils, industrial supply air fans, water pipe work, ductwork, controls and auxiliary equipment.  To ensure minimal energy use the fans are inverter driven and a user friendly control system to optimise operational times.

This new system has reduced energy consumption and operation costs by up to 80%.
