Did You Know? Air filtration enhancements are integral in mitigating the risk of disease and infection. Typical pre-filters are a MERV 8 pleated filter. It is recommended that these be upgraded to a MERV 13 filter for optimal efficiency and up to 85% increase in removal of airborne particles. In addition, a typical final filter (if part of your HVAC system) utilizes MERV 14 filters and higher. It is recommended that filtration be upgraded to MERV 16 filters to increase removal efficiency of airborne particles to up to 90%.
