Our History

In the 1960s, our founder introduced the first mobile heater to a winter construction site allowing jobsites to begin to operate year-round. After excelling at the production of portable heaters for several decades, temporary air conditioners and dehumidifiers were added to TEMP-AIR’s portfolio in the mid-1990s. In the late-1990s, the Thermal Remediation® pest control heat treatment division of TEMP-AIR, Inc. was launched as a spin-off of the company’s construction portable heating business.
