Every filter at Your Filter Connection comes with a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) rating. At our store, you can find ratings all the way to 13, a perfect solution for those with severe allergies and the highest quality you can find for home or office applications. The MERV rating measures the ability of the filter to pull debris out of the air. The medium rating will be a sufficient solution for a common residential air filter, but if you suffer from major allergies, a higher rating is more appropriate. Higher rated filters actually slow down the air flow via electrostatic mechanisms. This way, it can catch more debris. The higher the rating, the higher the price, so it may better your budget to stick to a medium rating. However, it is highly recommended that you purchase the best filter that your unit can support and that your budget will allow. Remember, an air conditioning or furnace filter needs to be changed every three months, and every month during high seasons of use. A clean filter help keep sensitive components in your heating or cooling unit working smoothly. When too much dust collects on your filter, the motor has to work harder. This causes the motor to burn out faster. It's actually cheaper to replace your filter every three months, than it is to wear down your motor prematurely. Filters are relatively inexpensive and easy to install Our store has a complete filter selection. If we don't have what you need, we can custom order it for you.
