Born in St Galen Switzerland in 1942, Adrian Alfred Huber migrated to Australia in 1966 and immediately worked in various areas from accounting to hospitality, but only found fulfilment working for himself. Beginning with ducted floor heating and one installer, Adrian began what would be a long and prosperous career in residential heating and cooling.

Recognizing a gap in the market for the style of hydronic heating he enjoyed in Europe, and the substandard style of ducted endured in Australia, Adrian was one of the pioneers in bringing hydronic heating to Melbourne homes.


With more than 15 apprentice plumbers graduating through Hub-air over 40 plus years (and most going on to establish themselves independently in the same industry) Adrian had a direct hand in bringing hydronic heating and refrigerated air to thousands of homes in Melbourne and beyond.

Adrian was very highly regarded in the industry for his knowledge, ingenuity in work with older and more complex installations and aiming for total customer satisfaction.

Always wearing a smile, charm and a tan, Adrian was admired throughout the industry and left an enduring legacy with Hub-air.

Adrian’s principles of customer service and thorough quality are still the foundations of Hub-air to this day.
