Clean Air's experience and expertise in evaporative cooling technologies is immediately obvious.


Clean Air Group, a UK leader in the design, installation and maintenance of HVAC systems, announced today that it has been appointed the Official UK distributor for AirGroup Australia, manufacturer of Cool Breeze Evaporative Systems.

Endorsing the decision, Dion McConnell, General Manager, Air Group Australia said:

“The choice of Clean Air as the sole UK distributor for Cool Breeze was actually very easy for us. Clean Air's experience and expertise in evaporative cooling technologies is immediately obvious. From the earliest days Clean Air has been a leader in the UK and, justifiably, they have earned a formidable reputation not just for the sheer number of units they have installed, but also for their exacting standards on site. As important is after sales care. Outstanding service and support is an essential element in our choice of partner. Clean Air simply set such exemplary standards others are left to follow.”

Welcoming the announcement, Marie Wren, Managing Director of the Clean Air Group, said:

“When it comes to cooling large open spaces, nothing compares with Evaporative Cooling. Not only is it incredibly effective, but it is a fraction of the cost of air conditioning to install and then run. We chose Cool Breeze unit for it’s outstanding power, efficiency and reliability. Quite simply Cool Breeze units deliver on its promises and this is a good match with Clean Air’s very same ethos.”

Few cooling technologies in the workplace have been as revolutionary or Important as evaporative cooling. Clean Air were one of the first HVAC companies in the UK to recognise how this simple technology would change the world of cooling - be it for factories, warehouses, offices, server rooms or sports centres. The story began back in 1998 with Clean Air’s first installation. Since then it has perhaps installed more evaporative cooling units than any other HVAC company in the UK. The head start provided Clean Air with advantages. Not least the opportunity to work with various manufacturers and assist in the development of evaporative cooling technologies. This culminated three years ago in the choice of Cool Breeze as it’s preferred supplier, and today the formalisation of its status as the sole UK distributor for the brand.

Manufactured in Australia, the Cool Breeze QAD230 unit is the only evaporative cooler available in the UK with performance results supported by published BSRIA testing. The results speak for themselves - an airflow of 11,000 m3/hour and, at typical velocities of 1.7m/sec, a pressure drop of just 20Pa through the Cool Breeze cellulose pads. The QAD230 unit boasts many unique features such as a unique powerflow fan with ‘golf ball’ dimpled blades for improved airflow performance and a patented Magna Sensor drain valve to electronically regulate water levels. No Magna Sensor installed by Air Group has ever failed, testimony to its outstanding reliability and maintenance free long life. QAD230 units also feature high capacity motors mounted after the fan blade to ensure highest air velocity over the motor and a greater cooling medium area for maximised evaporative effect.

How evaporative cooling works

Air is blown over water held in saturated cellulose pads. As it evaporates it absorbs heat, which is carried away, and so the surrounding temperature falls. The temperature of air is reduced proportionally to the amount of evaporation that takes place, with a maximum theoretical dry bulb reduction equivalent to the difference between prevailing wet and dry bulb temperatures.
