What does MERV or a MERV Rating mean?

Your filters’ MERV Rating is a good way to help judge the effectiveness of the filter.

MERV means Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value which was developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioner EngineersASHRAE.

MERV values vary from 1 to 16.

The higher the MERV value is the value the more efficient the filter will be in trapping airborne particles. Another consideration is air flow through the your HVAC system. Leaving a dirty air filter in place or using a filter that is too restrictive may result in low air flow and possibly cause the system to malfunction.

ASHRAE recommends MERV 6 or higherUS Department of Energy recommends MERV 13 LEED recommends MERV 8 at a minimum
