MERV Air Filter Chart

How does it Work?

The MERV Rating System for Air Filters




What does MERV Rating have to do with choosing an air filter?


MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Rating Value. This is an industry standard rating system that allows you to compare filters made by different manufacturers. A MERV rating is a numerical value ranging from 1 (lowest efficiency) to 20 (highest efficiency) and tells the consumer how well the filter captures and holds dirt and dust of a specified size range. The chart below shows the MERV ratings, corresponding particle size ranges, and efficiency level as measured by the percentage of particles captured.

 

The MERV air filter efficiency rating system was developed by the ASHRAE, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers. The rating system is referred to as ASHRAE Standard 52.2-2007:Method of Testing General Ventilation Air-Cleaning Devices for Removal Efficiency by Particle Size. Standard 52.2 not only sets forth a testing protocol to ensure reliable and consistent testing of filter performance on particles of nominal 0.3-10 micron in diameter. ASHRAE 52.2 lead to the creation of the minimum efficiency rating value, or MERV, a guideline to determine a filters performance by particle size, ranging from 0.3 – 10 micronsin size. This value is based on the lowest, or minimum efficiency for the filter. In many cases this is when the filter is first installed.

 

Generally, the higher the MERV, the better the filter will perform at removing smaller particle sizes. MERV 1 through 4 are designed to remove large particles. These filters are used primarily to protect equipment and are used in light industrial and residential applications. For these values, the average particle size efficiency from 3 to 10 micron is less than 20%. Because of this, average arrestance, which is a measure of a filters ability to remove coarse particulate, is used to determine MERV 1 through 4.

 

MERV 5 through 16 filters remove finer particles and are used in applications where it is important to protect individuals or processes from airborne contaminants that could otherwise affect health and productivity. The average particle size efficiency has three ranges: E1 (0.3 to 1 micron), E2 (1 to 3 micron) and E3 (3 to 10 micron) will determine MERV for these products.

 

At On Time Air Filters, we recommend Merv 8 filters as our "better" filter" and Merv 11 filters as our "best filter." For people with pets or otherwise desiring superior odor management, we offer a "best for pets" in some sizes.  This is a carbon activated Merv 8 filter. We do not recommend Merv 13 filters, because these filters may negatively affect certain HVAC systems.

 

The following chart describes each MERV value in the rating system:

 

 

Typical applications for the major MERV value ranges are:

MERV 1 – 4

  • Minimum filtration, used almost exclusively in residential buildings

MERV 5 – 8

  • Most commercial applications and better residential buildings

MERV 9 – 12

  • Superior residential buildings and better commercial buildings

MERV 13 – 16

  • Hospital inpatient and general surgery; found in superior commercial buildings

MERV 17 – 20

  • Clean rooms and pharmaceutical manufacturing


Merv 8:MERV 8 air filters effectively reduce pollen, dust, pet dander, and other fibers from your indoor air. Removing these airborne particles can help alleviate allergies and sinus irritation that can cause watery eyes, itchy throat, coughing, and sneezing. Aside from the health benefits, this HVAC air filter in your home will also extend the life of your heating and cooling system by making it work more efficiently.

Merv 11: MERV 11 filters effectively reduce pollen, dust, pet dander, mold spores, dust mites and other allergens from your indoor air. Removing these airborne particles can help improve allergies and alleviate sinus irritation that can cause watery eyes, itchy throat, coughing, and sneezing. Aside from the health benefits, these HVAC filters will also extend the life of your heating and cooling system by making it work more efficiently.

Merv 13: MERV 13 filters remove at least 90 percent of all particles 1.0 - 10.0 microns,Reduces dust, pet dander, mold spores and bacteria。
