Please note that filters with a MERV rating higher than MERV 11 may be too restrictive for your residential system and negatively impact your home heating & air conditioning systems. Please consult your HVAC professional before installing any filter with a MERV rating higher than 11.

MERV Rating, or Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, is an industry standard for measuring the efficiency of air filters. The lowest possible MERV rating is a 1, while the highest efficiency rating is 20. Lower MERV rated filters will trap larger particulate in the air while filters with higher ratings will trap smaller particulate. Generally speaking MERV 8 filters are recommended for most residential use as are MERV 11. Again, the higher the MERV rating the greater the filter’s ability to trap finer airborne particulate.
