technology & communication centre

Thermaire and Ampair have a joint Technology and Communication Centre located in Johannesburg, South Africa. From here, all critical buildings and fleets are monitored 24/7, giving customers peace of mind in knowing that any critical areas and equipment are always monitored.

Field Technicians make use of tablets to log maintenance report cards remotely, enabling real-time data transfer between the site teams and the Technology and Communication Centre. A history is saved to the specific client profile and can be accessed at any point. This drastically reduces reporting time and the time it takes to order spare parts.


We are specialists in the design, supply, installation and maintenance of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems (HVAC) for the commercial property, industrial, hospitality, retail and healthcare industries.
