Indoor Air Quality Solutions

Healthy Buildings. Green Buildings.

It may come as a surprise to learn that healthy buildings are not at odds with green building goals. Today’s indoor air quality solutions deliver cleaner air without negatively impacting your bottom line.

From bolt-on and built-in bipolar ionization technologies to plug & play mobile solutions, CM3 curates the latest technologies to deliver the best IAQ solutions for total building wellness. Because we are not tied to a single manufacturer or product line, we can recommend the products that work best in your built environment.

Our solutions fall into two categories:

  • Bipolar Ionization Systems – these are installed within your existing HVAC system. We deploy the industry-leading Global Plasma Solutions product line which provide flexibility to work with virtually any HVAC manufacturer or equipment type.
  • Mobile IAQ Systems – these are deployed at the room or area level and deliver up to 500 CFM per unit. We offer both the AstroPure and ISO-Aire solutions – each with unique features and benefits depending on your specific application.

Bipolar Ionization – HVAC System Solutions

As experts in delivering solutions for healthy buildings, CM3 offers the Global Plasma Solutions (GPS) Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NBPI) technology for indoor air quality improvement.

For nearly a decade, CM3 Building Solutions has been integrating Ionization Technology into ventilation systems and has installed more than 50 systems in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

GPS NPBI is a revolutionary technology that fights pathogens and provides safer, cleaner air, as well as helps to deliver greater energy efficiency. This patented technology can be found in more than 250,000 installations worldwide.

Works with Any System in Any Building

The GPS diverse portfolio of products serves the widest variety of system types, delivering the ions via any new or existing ventilation system regardless of type, brand, or size. The product line is modular, enabling larger facilities to build solutions to scale. Easily retrofitted with existing units:

  • Air Handling
  • Ducted
  • Ductless
  • Fan Coil Units
  • Rooftop Units
  • Unit Ventilators

As Good or Better than a MERV13 Filter

Independent laboratory testing demonstrated that using a MERV 8 filter combined with GPS NPBI will have the same or better particle control than a system using a MERV 13 filter without NPBI. This equates to fan energy savings and filter replacement cost savings.

A Proven Process to Clean the Air

This air around us is filled with particles like dust, dander, pollen, smoke, odors, and even pathogens including mold, viruses, and bacteria. The GPS technology cleans the air by introducing ions in the space. The ions are delivered via the airflow in your existing ventilation system.

Once in the air stream, the ions attach to particles where they combine, become larger and are more easily filtered from the air. When ions come in contact with pathogens, they disrupt the pathogens’ surface proteins, rendering them inactive.

  • Particle ReductionNPBI reduces airborne particles (i.e., dust, pet dander, pollen) through agglomeration. The ions attach to the airborne particles. The particles are subsequently attracted to one another, effectively increasing their mass and size. The air filtration system easily captures the larger particles, increasing the capture efficiency of your HVAC system.
  • Odor ReductionDuring 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.
  • Pathogen ReductionDuring the GPS cleaning process, NPBI attacks and deactivates 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.
  • Energy SavingsGPS’ environmentally-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.

Indoor Air Purification – Mobile Plug & Play Units

For the ultimate flexibility, CM3 offers best-in-class mobile, IAQ solutions from AstroPure and ISO-Aire. Each of these product lines has been thoroughly tested by CM3 engineers and is used in our headquarters.

Both units deliver reliability and affordability, making them ideal for small and mid-sized organizations, classroom-level IAQ solutions, and individual users looking for a more robust IAQ solution.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership

While residential air purifiers have a lower initial entry cost, over the life of the product, the total cost of ownership for these products is much lower:

  • Long-life high-capacity HEPA filter life (3-5 year life span)
  • +6-month pre-filter lifespan
  • Lower maintenance costs (filter replacement, vacuuming, automatic scheduling option for AstroPure)
  • ECM ‘motors’ for higher efficiency (vs residential-style air purifiers)
  • Industrial-grade components for longer operational life


  • On-Demand and recurring scheduling
  • LCD interface
  • Industry-wide lowest noise generation


  • Simple operation (less likely to be unintentionally interfered with)
  • Easy pre-filter changes
  • Low noise generation
  • Adjustable directional register fins
  • Optional bipolar ionization and UV features

Our pricing for these units is highly competitive. Please reach out for more information.
