What Is an Air Filtration System?
An air filtration system, or "air filter," is a tightly woven fiber mesh stretched across a frame and installed in your ducts. As air flows through the filter, any contaminants that it carries will become snared in the fibers. This is an extremely popular method for clearing a home’s air, as it’s passive and doesn’t require any sort of power. The filter does have to be removed and either cleaned or replaced every few months, in order to prevent it from becoming clogged. However, it’s still a great method for removing the majority of contaminants from your home’s air. Which air filter you choose, though, should depend on a number of factors.
How MERV Affects You
All air filtration systems are sorted by MERV, which stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. The MERV rating determines how tightly woven the mesh in the filter is. The more tightly woven the mesh, the more and smaller contaminants that the filter can capture. The MERV rating ranges from 1 to 25+, with 10–12 being around the average for residential filters. Now, you may be tempted to go for the highest MERV you can, but you shouldn’t. The higher the MERV, the more effort it’s going to take to force air through the filter. Filters with a very high MERV rating tend to be used in industrial buildings, as residential HVAC systems are not powerful enough to circulate air through them. It’s best to consult with a professional before installing any air filtration systems, though.
