Are you looking for the best protection against cigarette smoke, smog, and general allergens? If so, Merv 8 filters are the perfect choice. These pleated filters are made of 100% synthetic media to capture common air pollutants between 3 and 10 microns in size. This includes pollen, pet dander, lint, and dust mites. MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Report Value and 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. If you are looking for the best protection against cigarette smoke, smog, and general allergens, Merv 11 is the best choice. An ideal upgrade to standard disposable panel filters, Merv 8 air filters improve filtration efficiency in your home or office. Although higher ratings (MERV 14-20) capture very small particles, they tend to be much more expensive and place more pressure on heating and cooling systems to work harder.
If germs, mold spores, or even wood burning fireplaces are a concern, Merv 13 is the way to go. To make sure you get the correct MERV rating, check to see if your oven manufacturer has a maximum rating that your oven model can use.
