MERV a.k.a. Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, is the rating system designed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers.
Basically the air filters job is to stop air born particles (like dust) and contaminants (like auto emissions) from passing through your HVAC unit and into your home or place of business. The MERV rating represents the level of filtration you are getting when air passes through the filter and into your unit. If you consistently change your filters, you can be confident that the air circulated from your unit is clean, you will save on energy costs, and the unit will last longer! So breathe easy, keep reading, and find out which filter works best for you!
MERV 8 - Our high quality MERV 8 filters are perfect for catching larger air particles (sizes 10-3 microns). MERV 8 filters work best for standard residential and commercial use.
MERV 10 - The mighty MERV 10 filters are a step up from the MERV 8, stopping almost all household particles (sizes 10–1 micron ranges). Our MERV 10 filters are the superior choice for residential and commercial use, and are great for hospital laboratories. The MERV 10 filters will extend the life of your HVAC unit too!
MERV 13 - Our top rated MERV 13 filters offer the highest level of residential or commercial air filtration. Commonly used by hospitals, the MERV 13 filter is the gold standard for combating air pollutants (sizes 10–0.3 micron ranges). Our MERV 13 filters are the top choice for residential and commercial use, and as mentioned early, are the most common filters used by hospitals. So give our MERV 13 filters a whirl and take a breath of fresh air, whether in or out side.
