Proper filtration will help to decrease airborne allergens such as pollens, mold spores and animal dander. MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) ranges from one to sixteen, and measures the effectiveness of an air filter. The higher the rating, the less dust particles and other contaminants are able to pass through it. MERV 13 to 16 is average for hospital and surgery settings. Higher MERV isn’t always better. Higher ratings mean smaller pores for air to pass through on an HVAC filter, which creates more resistance. High MERV filters also need to be changed more often, and if they are a custom size, expect to pay more.

Changing your filter before activating your cooling equipment in the spring is the key to dependable performance and stable air quality. The filter of your furnace is its primary defense against dust contaminating the interior. Change or clean filters monthly to prevent dust from reducing airflow, which leads to much higher energy costs and overworked components.
