About Us

Active Air was started in 2001 by Jeff Simon as a sole trader, carrying out work for his own customers and working as a sub-contractor for various companies. Through consistently high standards of workmanship and service and an unfaltering commitment to our customers the business grew steadily, largely by word of mouth and a strong customer base was developed.

In 2010 Tony Brown was employed and the company kept growing at a steady pace, despite the adverse economic conditions. Active Air now employs a growing team of engineers and support staff in the office.

As the company grew the formation of an identity was required and the company logo was extended to signwriting on the vans which also boast custom plates, to make our brand recognisable and memorable.

The 2 senior engineers each have in excess of 30 years’ experience in the industry, and all engineers are F-Gas registered, as is the company. We are client focussed and are available 24/7 with prompt response times to all calls.

We have carried out works from Aberdeen to Cornwall, Wales to Kent, making us a truly national company. Our engineers are qualified and experienced in their trade and receive regular training as part of our program to ensure we are acquainted with the latest developments in the industry.

We install all major brands and have approved installer status with a number of suppliers. We also work closely with all suppliers to ensure that we can offer the best products at competitive prices.

Our mission is to steadily grow our business through satisfied customers who want to refer us to others who appreciate our service, experience, technical knowledge and desire to deliver excellent service.
