ProAir is an Irish owned company founded in 1995 by Galway native David McHugh in a small office and workshop in Cummer, Co. Galway. There are now 3 locations; with the head office and the manufacturing facility in the Polkeen Industrial Estate in Castlegar, Co. Galway, the Dublin office, Greenogue Industrial Estate, Rathcoole and the Cork Office, Millennium Business Park, Youghal, Co. Cork.

ProAir’s early beginnings were in service, way back in the early nineties. Requests were coming in for better ventilation solutions and heat recovery ventilation was the obvious solution. This prompted the development of the ProAir range as seen today.

In 2004, before ProAir as we know it today was born, the first units were manufactured from a moulded plastic and installed in customers’ homes. This unit became known as the PA600. The following year its sister product, the PA300, was developed for smaller installations.

An upgrade of the units was undertaken in 2011/12 utilizing the highly insulating, sound resistant, strong and easily workable material, expanded polyethylene.

Due to nationwide demand for the innovative range of ProAir Systems, the Dublin office was opened to more easily serve the nationwide footprint established today.

In 2016 after much testing and perseverance, the PA600 PLI achieved the prestigious mark of Passivhaus certification.

In 2018, we proudly saw the production of our 5000th MVHR unit here at our new facility in Castlegar Galway and with our newly remodelled PA 600LI unit.

ProAir are looking forward to working closely with you the customer to not just provide the optimum solution, but also to contributing to the local and national economy with Irish manufacturing jobs.


We service what we sell. Because of our background in the service industry, we have a deep understanding of our customer’s needs, whether these are home-owners, builders or developers. The end-user can be assured that their MVHR system will work away silently in the background, keeping them healthy and comfortable in their ultra-low-energy private space.

Builder / developer clients can be happy that their clients understand and appreciate the valuable system that has been provided and that with the ProAir after-sales process in operation they never need to expect a complaint related to indoor environment.

This will be the case, as the system will have been specifically designed for the application, professionally installed and diligently maintained. It is this end-to-end service which makes ProAir unique among manufacturers of these units.

It is our intention to maintain this level of customer focus as we grow into the future and greatly expand the large circle of friends (customers) we currently have throughout Ireland, the UK and Europe.
