Indoor Air Quality Solutions to fight COVID-19

During these unprecedented times it is important to stay as safe as possible. Social distancing, frequent hand washing, and a general awareness of your environment are key when it comes to protecting yourself from COVID-19. However, because the COVID-19 virus particles act as aerosols that can remain airborne for hours, it is important we rethink how we can keep our air clean. The CDC and other governmental organizations have recommended the use of MERV 13 filters to reopen our buildings, but we have discovered through research and experience that MERV 13 filters are not a feasible solution in most cases. Not only are they rarely available, they need to be changed more often, and cost approximately 50% more than a standard pleated filter. The MERV 13 filters greatly restrict the air flow necessary to cool the fan motors,  freeze air conditioning coils, and possibly damage the equipment. This will require more energy, resulting in higher costs. As your mechanical contractor, we suggest an alternate solution to MERV 13 filters. 

Being an Indoor Air Quality specialist, ABSI has found a practical solution to help you fight COVID-19 within your home or building. Global Plasma Solutions (GPS) has been using plasma ionization effectively since the onset of SARS-CoV-2 and reduces various pathogens and mold spores by 99.9%. ABSI has chosen these devices as our main approach to building reopenings because they are readily available, won’t break the bank, reduce particles, kill pathogens, neutralize odors, are low maintenance, and save energy. GPS systems come in all sizes and can install onto varieties of equipment to fulfill your building’s needs.

To better understand how GPS works; these purification devices introduce negative and positive ions into the airstream and are naturally attracted to each other, eventually clumping together. Thus trapping airborne particles between these ions and making them more dense, heavier and much easier for a standard pleated filter to trap. These efficient devices have proven to reduce 99.9% of SARS-COVID-19 surface strain within 30 minutes of installation and caused the virus to be inactivated. ABSI advises you to look to GPS as a solution and truly believe it is the best option to keep your building’s air safe and clean.

Reduces airborne particles like dust, pet dander, pollen through agglomeration. The air filtration system easily captures the larger particles, increasing the capture efficiency of your HVAC system.

During the GPS cleaning process chemical, pet, cooking, and other odors are broken down into basic harmless compounds, leaving the indoor air fresh smelling and free of odor causing VOCs.


During the cleaning process the NPBI Technology attacks and kills viruses, mold spores, and bacteria. The ions steal away hydrogen from the pathogens, leaving them to die, and leaving you with clean and healthy indoor air. 


GPS’s eco-friendly cleaning process allows commercial buildings to significantly reduce the amount of outdoor air required to operate. This equates to a safer, more comfortable environment that requires up to 30% less energy to condition.
