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.

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.

Chris and the team took on a niche home networking job for me to cable up 12 runs across 5 rooms.

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
