A history of proven success.

Steril Aire LLC  >  About  >  History

Steril-Aire, launched the UVC for HVAC industry in 1994. Microbiologist and Founder, Robert Scheir, Ph.D. found pathogens like molds and bacteria growing on the coils of virtually every Air Conditioning evaporator coil he tested. When he then showed how UVC could solve the problem an industry was born. An ASHRAE/AHR Exhibitor since 1995, Steril-Aire formed what is the UVGI Air and Surface disinfection industry we see today.

Steril-Aire, ISO Certified in both 9001:2015 & 14001:2015, has held multiple pioneering patents throughout the history of the company and developed new and better ways to get the power of UVC directly where it needs to be in sufficient dosage to provide true solutions for the eradication of biological problems. Steril-Aire has always delivered the greatest UVC output in HVAC system conditions and according to the EPA and US Department of Homeland Security testing, generates a 6x disinfection advantage or more over any other UVC offering in the industry, even now almost 30 years after our high powered Emitters were first developed.

A constant innovator developing novel ways to employ UVC technologies, Steril-Aire surged to the forefront again in the fight against the dangers of worldwide pandemics. In October of 2020, Steril-Aire became a member of the Madison IAQ group of companies and continues to make the world safer, healthier, and more productive.

Today, Steril-Aire remains the unrivaled leader in the development of high performance UVC solutions for air and surface decontamination.
