MERV Ratings

MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, and MERV rating is the primary rating system used for air filtration. Higher ratings remove a larger percentage and broader range of debris from the air.

What is a merv rating

    Why Replace My Air Filter?

    • Removes unwanted dust, dirt, and other indoor particles
    • Lowers the cost of energy in your home or business
    • Prevents triggers of indoor allergies and asthma
    • Lessens mold and mildew growth

    Why Increase Air Filter MERV Rating?

    MERV ratings are designed to measure a filter’s ability to capture and hold particles and pollutants. The higher the MERV rating, the more particles – dust mites, pet dander, air allergens, etc – your filter will capture. Matching the right MERV filter to your needs will improve your home's air quality and will extend the life of your furnace or air conditioner.
