WHAT’S MERV GOT DO TO WITH IT?
MINIMUM EFFICIENCY REPORTING VALUE is the standard by which air filters are rated, the higher the MERV rating the finer the filtration. All of the home air filters we provide for our customers are of the highest quality, and are perfectly suited for individual applications. We carry 3 different MERV rated filters in a wide variety of the most popular sizes.
Here’s what you need to know about each one:
LOW ALLERGEN: MERV 8
This air filter is perfect for homes with only 1 or 2 people, or homes where the individuals living there either aren’t affected by allergies, or only suffer mildly. Just because it’s the lowest MERV rating it doesn’t mean these aren’t great filters… MERV 8 air filters still provide adequate filtration at a budget-friendly price point.
INTERMEDIATE: MERV 11
The MERV 11 air filter is ideal for medium to high traffic homes with 3+ people. It provides superior filtration to help cut down on allergens in the air caused by pets, dust, pollen, you name it! If you or someone in your household suffer from mild allergies at any point throughout the year, this is the air filter we’d recommend.
EXTREME CLEAN: MERV 13
This MERV 13 rated air filter is our most advanced filter and works the hardest to keep the air in your home as clean as possible. Go with this filter for households with larger families of 4+ people, homes with pets, or especially in homes with smokers. There’s a large upside here for just a few bucks more each delivery.
