What is MERV, and how does it affect the air quality in my home?

MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, and it rates how well air filters catch tiny, unwanted particles like pollen, dust, and mold spores. These ratings range from 1 to 16, with higher numbers indicating better filtration capabilities for cleaner breathing air. But there's a catch — not all HVAC systems are built to handle high-MERV filters. Using a filter with a MERV rating that's too high for your system can restrict airflow, making your HVAC work harder, potentially leading to increased energy usage and even system damage. That's why choosing the right MERV rating is crucial; it ensures you're filtering out the bad stuff without compromising your system's efficiency or lifespan. Let's keep your air clean and your system running smoothly by finding the perfect MERV match for your home.
