Before You Install, Check the MERV Rating
Air filtration systems don’t necessarily come in sizes, but there is a way to tell the capacity of a given type of air filter: the MERV rating. This rating provides you with critical information about the kinds of particles a particular air filter can trap. The MERV scale ranges from 1–20, with 1 being the lowest and 20 being the highest. Residential air filters typically fall into the 5–12 MERV range. Air filters with a MERV rating higher than 12 are HEPA filters, which can severely restrict the airflow in your system. You don’t have to navigate the world of MERV alone, though. Just start working with one of our professionals, and we’ll help guide you to the right air filter for your home. Once you have chosen your air filter, we’ll go ahead and install it for your so you can start to enjoy fresher, cleaner air!
Do Air Filters Need Repair?
Typically, air filtration systems do not need repair because they are fairly simple and dependent on the actual filter – but they do require maintenance in the form of regular changing. Upgraded air filters trap many more particles than standard air filters do, so it is recommended that you change your air filter every 2–3 months. If you need help learning how to change your air filter, or need an expert hand to handle the job, we are here to assist you. Changing your air filters regularly ensures you will continue to gain all the benefits your air filtration system has to offer.
How Does an Upgraded Air Filter Help My HVAC System?
The standard air filter that comes with your HVAC system will have a MERV rating between 1 and 4, the lowest on the scale. Your HVAC system doesn’t like dust any more than you do, and while your system may not sneeze, it can malfunction or operate in a stressed state when its components and air ducts are covered in dust. Upgraded air filters capture particles as small as three microns, so they capture far more dust than a standard air filter does. This means far less dust infiltrates and coats your HVAC system.
