MERV 8 pleated filters are made of a 100% synthetic medium to capture common air contaminants between 3 and 10 microns in size. These allergens include pollen, pet dander, lint, and dust mites. Change your standard disposable filter to a MERV 8 at an affordable price. The MERV, which stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, measures the efficiency with which air filters remove particles from the air.
The MERV ratings range from 1 to 20; the higher the number, the higher the percentage of contaminants blocked by the filter. It's important to replace filters regularly, as an older filter will be less effective at removing bacteria and dirt from the air, resulting in worse indoor air quality and increased energy costs. To make sure you're getting the right MERV rating, check if your oven manufacturer has a maximum rating your oven model can use. While a higher MERV rating means more particles are removed from the air, it doesn't always mean it's the best filter for you.
We recommend replacing the filter frequently to guarantee that the air remains clean, that energy costs are reduced and that the boiler is functioning properly. We offer different MERV classifications not only because different homes and businesses need different efficiency, but also because not all ovens are the same. We have ratings ranging from MERV 8 to MERV 13, covering the efficiency most homes need. Lower ratings (MERV 1-), which are most commonly used for fiberglass filters, provide minimal filtration.
When selecting an air filter for your home or business, consider factors such as your budget, the size of your HVAC equipment, and the age of your HVAC equipment to determine the MERV rating that best suits your needs.
