What Is a MERV 13 Filter?

A MERV 13 filter is a type of air filter certified to have passed the most rigorous tests to reduce the negative impact on indoor air quality caused by airborne particles. MERV 13 filters remove over 90% of particles down to 0.3 microns in size, making them ideal for use in homes and businesses with occupants who suffer from allergies or asthma.

MERV 13 filters are made of pleated materials to increase their surface area and improve airflow compared to other filters. This allows the MERV 13 filter to capture more particles without restricting the airflow, providing you with cleaner air and reduced indoor air pollution.

MERV stands for ‘Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value’. This is a scale that shows the effectiveness of filters at removing particles of varied sizes. The higher the number, the more particles the filter catches! As a reference, the ratings go from 1 (low) to 16 (exceptionally high filtration).

The MERV-13 strikes the right balance between efficient filtering and adequate airflow within a typical home. Therefore MERV 13 is the best filter for home air conditioning and HVAC use.

What Does a MERV 13 Filter Out?

When it comes to reducing the impact of particles in the indoor environment, MERV 13 filters are among the most effective.

Adding a MERV 13 filter to your air conditioning system is a great way to reduce the number of irritants and harmful particles in the air, including:

Through regular use, these filters can help to improve the air quality in your home or office, protecting you and your loved ones from a variety of health problems.

The MERV-13 filter catches up to 90% of particles in the 1-3 µm range, i.e., where PM2.5 exists. This is perfect for homes where people have asthma, allergies, or any other respiratory illnesses.

Particulate Matter 2.5 (PM2.5) are droplets and tiny particles in the air that are 2.5 microns or less in width. These particles are small enough to travel into our lungs. Long-term exposure to these particles can cause respiratory issues. People with cardiovascular and respiratory health concerns can be particularly sensitive to PM2.5. 

If you’re looking for a way to improve indoor air quality, consider using a MERV 13 filter. 

If you want to start enjoying clean, healthy air, contact the team at Alliance today. We offer a wide range of MERV 13 filters and other indoor air quality products to meet your needs. Call us today for more information or to book a MERV 13 filter installation appointment!

 

What Are the Benefits
of A MERV 13 Filter?

MERV 13 filters are cost-effective, easy to install, and an excellent addition to any home air conditioning system. Using just one filter, you’ll enjoy cleaner air across all living areas, effortlessly removing pollutants like pet dander while increasing your system’s efficiency.

In contrast to other filters, which may work well in the short term, MERV 13 filters help improve air quality over time since they trap more particles and reduce the amount of dirt and dust in your air conditioner.

There is a range of benefits of using a MERV 13 filter, including:

Cheaper Electricity Bills – Because MERV 13 filters are designed to capture more particles, they can help reduce your electricity bills by decreasing the strain on your air conditioning system.

Better Quality Air for Those with Allergies and Asthma – A MERV 13 filter is one of the best filters on the market for those with allergies or asthma, as it can capture a large number of particles without reducing airflow. Airborne contaminants that trigger allergies or asthma attacks will be eliminated, resulting in improved comfort and health.

Less Strain on Your System – A system utilising a MERV 13 filter can work more efficiently because the filter traps particles before they clog up the system. Reducing the number of pollutants in the air conditioner’s inlet reduces strain on ductwork motors over time.

Affordability – MERV 13 filters are an affordable addition to any air conditioning system. They are noticeably cheap, considering their efficiency. They are long-lasting and resilient, reducing how often they need to be replaced.

Ease of Installation – Installing a MERV 13 filter is a breeze—it can be done in minutes with hardly any tools required. This means we can install one as part of our regular maintenance servicing, and it won’t take any extra time or effort.

Installing a MERV 13 filter is a quick and easy way to improve your air conditioning system’s overall quality and performance. Here at Alliance Climate Control, we offer a range of filters designed to meet the needs and budget of any home. So, whether you’re looking for a budget-friendly option or something that provides better quality air, we have the perfect filter. For more information, call us today.

How Often Should I Replace
My MERV 13 Filters?

MERV 13 filters do an excellent job of removing particles from the air, including dust, lint, smoke, pollen, pet dander, and more. However, like all filters, they will eventually need to be replaced.

The lifespan of a MERV 13 filter depends on the specific environment in which it is being used and the frequency with which it is cleaned or replaced. Homes with high-traffic areas or pets may need to replace their MERV 13 filters more often. However, on average, a MERV 13 filter should be replaced every 3-6 months.

Each model offers specific instructions about periodic replacement. Following these guidelines will make sure your MERV 13 filter is always up to the task of improving indoor conditions. Using a filter for too long without changing or cleaning it not only circulates pollutants back into your home but also reduces its overall effectiveness.

Having your air conditioner fitted with a MERV 13 filter can often result in significant savings on your energy bill and improve your quality of life. More importantly, it’s easy to do, thanks to the team at Alliance. We stock a wide range of MERV filters and can help you choose the right one for your specific needs. For more information or to get a MERV filter fitted today, call us right now.

Matt and Aaron from Alliance were terrific. They were courteous and efficient and nothing was a bother. As an added bonus, they left my house cleaner than they found it!Alliance are so reliable that we just used them again. Apart from aircon maintenance, they replaced an old and broken video intercom system and diagnosed why our outdoor lights aren't working. An outstanding job - and service! - from Chris, JJ and Vashil.

The team from Alliance installed my split system air conditioner today - and I was so impressed! The guys arrived on time, they came with everything that was needed and clearly knew what they were doing. Andre, Adam and Dragan had clearly worked together many times and their teamwork was evident. Chris looked after the electrical side of the installation and also did a top job. Each of the guys were super polite and worked really hard. They took away the old, broken system and cleaned up at the end of the job. Everything that had been moved to do the installation was put back to the way it was found. These guys are top notch. Would highly recommend this company. From the first site visit to the close of the installation today, every communication was terrific and well organised.

Gabriel was very courteous, polite and professional.He was also very thorough, making sure that he inspected every component (even though it was a struggle in the confined ceiling space). The "booties" for work inside the house was a very nice touch.

Steven arrived well within the promised time, notified us on arrival and proceeded to inspect and advisee on condition of the existing 7 year old unit. He gave professional advice and explained in detail the various options available in a clear and concise manner. He provided detailed written quotations for each option. Very professional approach.

Yesterday we had a replacement Dakin split system installed in the place of our previous Daikin split system which needed replacement after 17 years of use.Whilst investigating to find a suitable supplier I came across Alliance Climate Control.Within a short time of calling them, a qualified expert was at my front door and I received a written quote.I compared this quote and how the installation would take place and I quickly came to the conclusion that Alliance was in a league of their own.The service received both before installation and during installation cannot be faulted in any way. Whatever they promised would happen, happened exactly as they said it would. Apart from having the best make of split system aircondioner supplied, their staff with whom I dealt with cannot be faulted. i Specifically commend BJ, Adam, Benjo, JJ, Vash, Chris D and Jac.They were great.i commend Alliance unreseredly.Ted S.

We had lots of problems with the installation. The agreed upgraded unit did not fit into the existing hole. A new unit arrived and it was the same unit we were replacing that Alex (Alliance rep) told us was not the right unit for our home. Eventually it was decided that the upgraded unit would fit under the house and an under the house unit was then used. After lots of delays Andres and his team were able to rectify all the problems in a very professional manner.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a MERV-13 Filter Eliminate Bacteria and Virus Carriers?

Most viruses (including COVID-19) spread via droplet nuclei, i.e., sneeze and cough particles ranging from 1 to 5 microns. These droplets then evaporate and remain suspended in the air for a long time. The MERV-13 filter can remove up to 90% of contaminants within 1 to 10 microns and up to 50% of 0.3 to 1 micron.

Are Do MERV 13 Filters Restrict Airflow?UV Light Air Purifiers Safe?

Some clients worry that MERV filters will restrict airflow and cause their heating or cooling systems to work harder. However, MERV 13 filters are designed to work with your system, not against it. MERV 13 filters actually improve airflow in your home or office, reducing airflow congestion by removing dirt before it clogs up your system

Which is better: MERV 13 or HEPA filter?

MERV-13 filters are more suitable for home air conditioning and HVAC use than HEPA filters. This is because MERV-13 filters still allow for adequate airflow. Learn more in our MERV 13 and HEPA filter comparison guide
