Sanitize the Air in Your Home with UV Lights

Fight back against pathogens, viruses, bacteria, mold, & fungus with a UV light.

What are UV lights?

Ultraviolet (UV) light is a component of the electromagnetic spectrum that falls in the region between visible light and X-Rays. UV light includes the wavelength range of 100 nm to 400 nm and can be further subdivided and categorized into four separate regions:

  • 100 nm to 200 nm: Far UV or vacuum UV (these wavelengths only propagate in a vacuum)
  • 200 nm to 280 nm: UVC – useful for disinfection and sensing
  • 280 nm to 315 nm: UVB – useful for curing, tanning and medical applications
  • 315 nm to 400 nm: UVA (or “near UV”) – useful for printing, curing, lithography, sensing and medical applications

How does UVC disinfection work?

With the right intensity, Ultraviolet energy is able to kill any kind of bacteria or virus. Testing still needs to be done to determine the specific kill rate for this virus, but by proactively treating your home with UVC, you will sterilize and disrupt the Coronavirus' DNA. This means that the Coronavirus becomes deactivated and can no longer reproduce. As evident by multiple research studies and reports, when biological organisms are exposed to deep UV light in the range of 200 nm to 300 nm it is absorbed by DNA, RNA, and proteins. Absorption by proteins can lead to rupture of cell walls and death of the organism. Absorption by DNA or RNA (specifically by thymine bases) is known to cause inactivation of the DNA or RNA double helix strands through the formation of thymine dimers. If enough of these dimers are created in DNA, the DNA replication process is disrupted, and the cell cannot replicate.

UV Light Whole Home Air Purifier

We have products that been tested and validated to reduce microorganisms in your home's air by 99.999996%. The UV light whole home air purifiers that are installed within the Home Comfort System. Unlike the standalone air purifiers, whole home air purification systems are designed to disinfect the air as it circulates through your ventilation system, cleaning the air moving through your home as the air goes through your Home Comfort System. This not only keeps the air in your home cleaner, but it also keeps your system running more efficiently and extends the life of the system.

Microorganisms are so tiny that most filters do not effectively filter them out of your home's air. UV lights have been shown to reduce molds and pathogens found within the Home Comfort System and drain pan that would otherwise be introduced back into the air circulating in your home.

Make your home your sanctuary.

  • Sierra Air is a first class company.

    “Sierra Air is a first class company. It is a pleasure to do business with Sierra, after dealing with other outfits that don't return calls, or call late to cancel/reschedule service. Their communication skills are outstanding; they call to confirm appointments, and then call an hour before the tech shows up. Their techs are in uniform and always polite, and very conscientious and knowledgeable.”

  • Our technician Darryl was very thorough, honest and informative.

    “Our technician Darryl was very thorough, honest and informative. He did a great job maintaining our unit and showed us before and after photos. He was on time and cleaned up any mess before he left. I would definitely recommend Sierra for all of your HVAC needs.”

  • I signed up for another year of service maintenance with Lou today so that I can continue getting the best Air Conditioning and Heating service Las Vegas has to offer. It gives me great comfort to be a part of Sierra Care.

    “Once again Luis Rivera has exceeded my expectations. During my Air Conditioning service appointment he taught me how to check my condenser "receive" and "return" pipes so that I can ensure the system is functioning properly. And while Jacob, his partner on this trip, checked the attic for battery strength (all were strong) and potential vent leaks (there were none) and cleaned my drip pan of any potential rust to ensure no rusty air in the return air, Luis conditioned the outside fan/condenser unit so that it literally gleamed like brand new. Lou always takes the time to describe why things happen the way they do. Today when I had a question about noise on startup he described how the unit I have is very high efficiency and that their are circular plates in the motor housing that keep that gassy part of the refrigerant separated from the liquid refrigerant. He told me that on startup and shutoff these plates make a little extra noise so that the gas and liquid do not comingle. It is wonderful to have such a knowledgeable and caring service person. Lou treats me like a member of the family. I signed up for another year of service maintenance with Lou today so that I can continue getting the best Air Conditioning and Heating service Las Vegas has to offer. It gives me great comfort to be a part of Sierra Care.”

  • I would highly recommend these folks

    “Sierra Air and Jason Thack (30 years’ experience) are the BEST in Las Vegas area. First of all, my AC stopped working at about 4p on a Friday and to make matters worse, I live in a manufactured home and there are essentially, only 2 companies licensed to work on manufactured homes. I was very pleasantly surprised when the dispatcher, Michelle called and set up the service call last night and I asked about the service contract they offered on their website if I would be able to apply the reduced discounts and benefits to being a member for this repair job and the answer YES. I was told to expect a call from dispatcher about 30-45 min before they would arrive (between 8a-10a) and at 715a, they called to say he was on the way. He arrived at 8a and within 10 minutes, had diagnosed the broken fan motor....by 9a, had cool air blowing through the vents and he went ahead and did the 'spring' maintenance on the unit. Overall, a very pleasant experience and I was expecting a big $$ amt, being the weekend and July in Las Vegas and, all total work done including parts and warranties came to $1000....that included changing 3 capacitors to eliminate a near-future service call or two. I am grateful, cooled off in my house, and would highly recommend these folks (who discuss actual fees and costs PRIOR to any work being done).”

  • I appreciate the care they take in your home

    “I am impressed with Sierra Air. I have received service twice from their company. I appreciate the care they take in your home--wearing shoe covers and placing a drop cloth on the flooring before setting their ladder down. (And they bring their own ladder! I've actually had an HVAC technician ask to borrow one :) Tim D was extremely polite and professional. He was patient in taking the time to discover the problem I had called about. 'Cause wouldn't you know, the sounds I had been hearing weren't happening when he got there. He really took the time to figure out what might be causing the concern I had. I'm glad he didn't give up because he finally got to hear what I had been talking about. He had assured me that the problem we were having would be resolved that day. He also addressed another smaller concern. And he gave me tips on setting my thermostats and the types of filters I should use. Give Tim a bonus! :)”
