The benefits

The short answer? YES!

What is the MERV-13 filter?

MERV is an acronym that stands for Minimum Eefficiency Reporting Value. It provides a scale that shows the effectiveness of filters at removing particles of different sizes. The higher the number, the more particles the filter catches!

The MERV13 catches up to 90% of particles in the range of 1-3 m (which are really, really small!).

The MERV-13 is designed to keep your air fresh, your home safe, and your lungs clean and healthy. If you suffer from allergies, or you are concerned about pollution and viruses getting into your home, then the MERV-13 is a fantastic option for your Air Conditioning unit.

Benefits of home air filters

A good quality air filter can make all of the difference in the air quality of your home and the environment that you live in. Your health, wellbeing and quality of life are all impacted by the air that you breathe.

Filter with a low MERV rating doesn’t catch contaminants that are on a smaller scale. For example, a MERV-8 won’t catch smog, smoke, virus carriers or cooking oil and kitchen pollutants.

Not only that, but the MERV-13 comes in a range of sizes to fit your unit properly.

Can the MERV-13 really stop dilated viruses and bacteria carriers?

Yes, absolutely. One of the main draws for the MERV-13 is its ability to catch the smallest particles and stop them from circulating in your home. Whether you’re worried about bacteria, viruses or bacteria carriers, the MERV-13 will stop them all. Not to mention it also does a fantastic job on all of the usual contaminants, like pollen and dust.
