Las Vegas Indoor Air Quality
Start Breathing Easier in Your Home
If you or your family suffers from chronic congestion, fatigue, nausea,
or restless sleep, poor indoor air quality may be to blame! Did you know
the air inside your home can be
4-5 times more polluted than the WORST outside air? This can be alarming, especially for those that suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory conditions. Considering we spend up to 90% of our time indoors, your indoor air quality can seriously impact your health. If you can’t control the air quality outside, you should definitely have control inside of your home!
Sierra LLC Air Conditioning & Heating offers solutions to make sure you and your family are breathing clean air inside of your home. After all, your home is your sanctuary and your family should be safe and protected inside your home.

Causes of Poor Air Quality
- There are many culprits that cause poor air quality, but the most common are:
- Airborne bacteria and illness, including viruses
- Mold spores
- Radon and carbon monoxide
- Dust and mites
- Volatile organic compounds found in many household items
- Cleaning agents
- Air fresheners
- Pet dander and hair
These common complications can significantly reduce your quality of life, but our experts can help restore air quality to your home.
Every spring when plants start to bloom, allergy-sufferers experience the same exasperating symptoms that plague them like clockwork every year. Depending on the severity of your allergies, it may become challenging to go anywhere without a full box of tissue to stop your nose – which has turned into to a faucet – or eye drops to soothe your itchy, watery eyes. Unfortunately, allergy symptoms may become much worse, leading to hives and even the onset of asthma.
With Southern Nevada’s allergy seasons peaking March through June, and then again September and October, we can safely say that suffering six months out of the year is inconvenient and uncomfortable to say the least.
Common Allergens in the Las Vegas Valley
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America ranked Las Vegas as the 36th most challenging place to live in the United States for those who suffer from spring allergies. Las Vegas was even ranked as the worst city for spring allergies by Pollen.com because of the large amounts of mulberry, ash and juniper pollen in the air. Las Vegas was also ranked as the second worst city in the U.S. for ragweed allergies, one of the most common causes of allergies in Southern Nevada.
One of the biggest issues with pollen and allergens in the valley are the strong winds, which spreads allergens to every part of the valley, even those which do not house many of these weeds, trees, or grasses to begin with. With so much pollen, mold, dust and other allergens constantly blowing throughout the valley, the only place you can escape is your home.
But is your home really safe from allergens? The answer is no.
The SOLUTION? Make Your Home Your Sanctuary!
Older homes may experience issues with more outside air coming into the house through window and door seams. On the other hand, many of the newer homes in Las Vegas are built more airtight, which traps outside air and allergens inside of your home. Either way, air from outside is coming into your home and becoming trapped there. Not only can outside air get into your home, bringing with it pollen and dust, but your pets, your clothes, and even your hair can bring allergens into your home.
The problem that all of this presents is that you are bringing more and more allergens into your home and it is staying there! Even if you clean your home religiously, dust still accumulates and outside allergens will still get in and stay there. So what is the solution? An air purification system for your home.
We’re not talking about the air filters that you can purchase at the store for $50. These whole-house air cleaners integrate with your Home Comfort System to actually purify the air within the walls of your home. The air is actually cleaned before it enters your Home Comfort System so it not only helps you breathe easier, but it benefits your equipment as well. There is significantly less dust build-up for your Home Comfort System to filter, extending its life and giving you more efficiency. So protect your family from allergies today!
