MERV Ratings Explained

Almost every air filter, whether online or at a hardware store, has a MERV rating. The MERV rating system is an industry standard developed by ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers). 

Because the MERV rating system holds every manufacturer to the same standards, you can rest assured that our filters will be the same size and quality of filters from other manufacturers. A MERV rating from us is identical to any other MERV filter rating from any other manufacturer using the MERV rating system.
