Three-Step HVAC Strategyto Ensure the Safe Return of Building Occupants and Users

Needlepoint Bi-Polar Ionization (Cold-Plasma)

Reduces or

  • Particulate
  • Pathogens, mold spores and viruses
  • Converts VOCs (odors)
  • Replaces UV Lights to clean coils
  • Allows for reduced ventilation air


By producing positive and negative ions that travel with the airstream and attach to particles, pathogens, and gas molecules. The ions kill pathogens by robbing them of life-sustaining hydrogen. The ions also breakdown harmful VOCs into harmless compounds like O2, CO2, N2 and H2O.


Atlantic Westchester has researched multiple engineered solutions to improve Indoor Air Quality (UV lights, BPI, HEPA Filtration) and have determined that GPS’s ionization technology is the most comprehensive product available at this time.
