About Us

For nearly three quarters of a century, Governair® has been the industry leader in the design and manufacture of HVAC systems.  From the first window air conditioning units to bear the "Governair" name, to the world-class, integrated systems engineered today; Governair has been both a pioneer and standard bearer in the HVAC market since 1937.  Today Governair is a brand of the CES Group, LLC, which is a subsidiary of Nortek, Inc., a global, diversified company whose many market-leading brands deliver broad capabilities and a wide array of innovative, technology-driven products and solutions for lifestyle improvement at home and at work.

Old Governair BuildingThrough its philosophy of aggressively pursuing robust, custom solutions to real time market challenges, the Governair brand has been associated with cutting edge HVAC design and manufacturing since its onset. As one of the first companies to pursue the idea that a total-system approach was the most efficient and cost-effective method of climatizing a large structure, Governair’s engineers became the originators of the first package concept system. Already nationally recognized for its 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.
 
Governair Patents Today, Governair manufactures HVAC systems for commercial and industrial use throughout the United States and around the world. Governair systems are custom-designed to meet the specific requirements for each application by producing the most efficient and cost-effective HVAC solutions available. By coupling single source responsibility with highly refined and automated manufacturing techniques, Governair eliminates the cost burden typically associated with custom quality.
