We recently began offering an exciting new product here at Titan—a bipolar ionization system by Global Plasma Solutions (GPS). This system removes pathogens (including COVID-19) from the air using your existing HVAC system. It has become an important part of health protection protocols in thousands of offices, airports, hospitals, schools, and other community spaces worldwide, and now you can have this system installed in your home as well!
How the GPS Bipolar Ionization System Works
GPS uses a patented technology called needlepoint bipolar ionization (or NPBI™) to purify indoor air by reducing airborne particulates, odors, and pathogens. To accomplish this, NPBI™ creates and releases ions into the airstream using an existing HVAC system. These ions disperse throughout the home, forming bonds with particles in the air through a process called agglomeration.
This process forms large clusters of particles that are more easily filtered out of the air by your HVAC system. In addition, the ions themselves have a microbicidal effect on pathogens, rendering them inactive. Even better, NPBI™ technology accomplishes this without producing ozone or other harmful byproducts, so it’s safe to use in your home.
(Please note the disclaimers on GPS’s website stating that this technology is not intended to take the place of other precautions to prevent disease transmission, and that compliance with health authorities and CDC guidance is still important.)
A New Way to Clean the Air in Your Home
Since NPBI™ technology uses your existing HVAC system, it can be easily implemented in your home. Even beyond preventing the spread of infectious diseases like COVID-19, creating cleaner, safer indoor air will always be a part of maintaining a healthy home.
In the past, homeowners often relied on UV lights to address their indoor air quality concerns. And UV lights can certainly be effective against bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens in the air. However, those systems require their bulbs to be replaced yearly, and those costs can add up. The GPS Bipolar Ionization System achieves the same effect as UV lights without parts that need to be cleaned or replaced. This means cleaner air with fewer ongoing costs for you.
The Benefits of Using a GPS Bipolar Ionization System in Your Home
Having cleaner air to breathe is a significant benefit in and of itself, but NPBI™ technology can do even more. The GPS bipolar ionization system can:
- Trap bacteria and viruses, helping to prevent the spread of germs.
- Trap dust and dust mites.
- Trap pet dander, mold spores, and other allergens.
- Reduce odor-causing Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
These things are especially beneficial to those who suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems. In fact, if you are someone who suffers from one or more of these health issues, a bipolar ionization system could prove to be an indispensable part of maintaining your health.
If you have pets or smokers living in your home, you likely understand how difficult it is to manage odors and keep your indoor air fresh. And even if you don’t, cooking, garbage, smoke from a fireplace, and more can quickly fill your home with unwanted odors that are difficult to remove. With a NPBI™ system, the struggle for fresh indoor air could be a thing of the past. Imagine having clean, fresh air throughout your home without the air fresheners, cleaners, and other products typically needed to remove smoke and odors!
Titan Brings GPS Bipolar Ionization to You
Here at Titan we have installed GPS’s NPBI™ technology in local schools and universities over the past several months, as they work to create safer indoor air for students during the pandemic.
We have installed many NPBI™ systems in homes throughout our service area, as homeowners are beginning to take advantage of this new technology to clean the air in their homes. Because it destroys pathogens without producing ozone or other harmful byproducts, NPBI™ is safe to use in any indoor space, including your home. For more information about NPBI™ technology, check out our recent blog post about it.
