Innovation and location

Nu-Air Ventilation Inc. is a family-owned and family-operated company in Windsor, in the eastern end of the Annapolis Valley region. Nu-Air has been growing its business by supplying an innovative line of indoor air quality/air-handling products for energy-efficient buildings and residential use in Canada and around the world. Nu-Air’s special integrated solutions for heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems are used in the Drake Landing Solar Community in Okotoks, Alberta. The City of Brampton, Ontario, also chose Nu-Air products for North America’s first LEED® Platinum public housing development.

For our people, who are generally from the area, they have access to well-paying jobs with a short, traffic-free commute – from and to affordable neighborhoods.

As well as being innovative, Nu-Air is ideally located, says Greg Caldwell, Vice-President of Operations. “Windsor is the next stop down the road from Metro (Halifax Regional Municipality),” said Greg. “As such, goods, services, and transportation are conveniently within reach in either direction. For our people, who are generally from the area, they have access to well-paying jobs with a short, traffic-free commute – from and to affordable neighborhoods. In fact, I live right in Halifax and, during my always-predictable 45-minute commute to Windsor, I watch the traffic struggle past me every day in the opposite direction!”
