Beyond Filters and Coils
Changing air filters in your space can only help to mitigate particles of a certain size, while HVAC coils can often play host to the growth of mold, algae, and bio film. During a time in which air quality concerns have never been more critical, give your staff peace of mind by working beyond filters and coils. With the use of UV lights and ionization, we can eliminate harmful elements before they are circulated through your system and into your space.
The negative and positive IONS generated through bi-polar ionization charges even the smallest airborne particulates missed by HVAC coils and filters, causing them to bind together in clusters large enough for capture through filtration.
Add an ion generator to your space as an additional stage in the breakdown of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
UV Light cleans the surfaces of the coil within the HVAC system, as well as the air as it passes through the light beam. This contributes to improved indoor air quality, and a more efficient system, as well as lower electric bills.
• UV lights in ductwork and on HVAC coils to kill microorganisms and increase efficiency of your HVAC system
• Self-contained UV light units to sanitize the air within a space
Elevators and Small Spaces
Many people encounter elevators daily at work, on a trip to the dentist, and elsewhere. These small areas of shared space can be of concern when it comes to air quality and the spread of germs. The installation of a self-contained UV light can greatly reduce risks associated with tight spaces such as elevators, board rooms, conference rooms, and other common spaces by sanitizing the air within.

Indoor Air Quality FAQ
How important is indoor air quality?
Breathing quality air indoors is critical for good health. When the air quality in your working or living spaces is poor, you can suffer from allergies, asthma attacks, and various other health problems ranging in severity from mild to extreme.
How do you know if your indoor air quality is good/safe?
Signs that you could have indoor air quality issues include moisture and mold growth, unpleasant odors, pest infestations, and experiencing any of the following symptoms: fatigue, dizziness, frequent illness, headaches, hyperactive allergies, nausea, respiratory issues, and more. In order to know for sure if IAQ is an issue in your home or workspace, professional air quality testing can be performed.
What are the most common indoor air pollutants?
Carbon monoxide, asbestos, formaldehyde from pressed wood products, lead, radon, and biological pollutants are the most common indoor air pollutants that affect overall indoor air quality.
What are some examples of indoor air pollution?
Indoor air pollution can be caused by mold, pollen, tobacco smoke, gases like radon and carbon monoxide, household products and pesticides, as well as some building materials that contain substances like asbestos, lead, and formaldehyde.
What does Metro Services, Inc. do to test indoor air quality for customers?
In order to assess indoor air quality for customers, Metro Services performs various testing, filtration analysis, mold testing, and introduces commercial air filtration design.
What products does Metro Services, Inc. use to help improve indoor air quality for customers?
Metro Services IAQ professionals use various products to help improve indoor air quality for customers including HVAC filters, UV lights to clean HVAC coils and kill bacteria and other particles, and ionization.
What is bi-polar ionization?
The negative and positive IONS generated through bi-polar ionization charges even the smallest airborne particulates missed by HVAC coils and filters, causing them to bind together in clusters large enough for capture through filtration. This process is facilitated by an ion generator installed in spaces to improve indoor air quality.
Why is it important to address indoor air quality within your building, warehouse, or workspace?
It’s important to address indoor air quality in your building to help ensure the health and safety of everyone who works in or spends time inside the space. Poor indoor air quality can have extremely harmful effects on human health, causing symptoms such as Eye, nose, and throat irritation headaches, dizziness, fatigue, respiratory diseases, heart disease, and some cancers.
How does the use of UV light help boost indoor air quality?
As a sanitation device, UV lights help eliminate bacteria and mold around your air conditioning or furnace coils before air is recirculated throughout your living space. The UV light helps to mitigate common bioaerosols and airborne pollutants that affect indoor air quality including mold, mildew, fungus, and other bacteria.
How can you address indoor air quality in elevators and small indoor spaces?
The installation of a self-contained UV light can greatly reduce risks associated with tight spaces such as elevators, board rooms, conference rooms, and other common spaces by sanitizing the air within.
How does Metro Services track and address issues with indoor air quality for customers?
Our team uses WebLink, an online dashboard for customers, to ensure that every aspect of your indoor air quality program is available to you 24/7. The WebLink Customer Dashboard offers convenience and accessibility with organized work orders, system data, easy service scheduling options, and a list of all your equipment models and series numbers online and readily available any time you need access.
How does HVAC performance affect indoor air quality?
Your HVAC system works to circulate air throughout your building, so if it is not operating at peak, that could have negative effects on the indoor air quality within those spaces. Heating and cooling systems provide filtration that generally removes airborne contaminants from the air, but clogged ductwork and inefficient filtration and overall operation can negatively impact the air being moved throughout the building.
What health effects can poor indoor air quality have on people?
Exposure to poor indoor air quality can have both immediate and long-term effects on people. Some health effects, such as irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue, can show up shortly after a single exposure or repeated exposures to a pollutant. Other long term effects, including respiratory diseases, heart disease, and some types of cancer, can also show up even years after exposure.
How does improved indoor air quality positively impact a work environment?
In addition to improving the overall health of people working inside a building, good indoor air quality generally results in improved morale, less sick days for employees, reduced absenteeism, reduced energy costs, and an overall better quality of environment for all involved.
