Filters – Filters – Filters

What type of filter is best for your home?

How often should the filter be replaced?

What is MERV rating?

MERV rating is the “minimum efficiency reporting value”, and ranges from 1 to 16.  The higher the MERV, the more efficient the filter is in trapping airborne particles.

There are 5 different types of filters:

  1. Fiberglass (1-4 MERV rating)
  2. Pleated (6 or higher MERV rating)
  3. Disposable Electrostatic (10 or higher MERV rating)
  4. Hepa-Filters (14-16 MERV rating)
  5. Washable (varied MERV rating)

The best filter for your home is one that removes the most pollutants from the air while allowing your HVAC system to perform at peak condition.  Older HVAC systems, or those with leaky ducts may need filters with lower MERV ratings.  It could take you some experimenting to find out which filter works best for you.  Luckily, most of your choices are relatively inexpensive.

How often will vary based on filter type, allergies, pets, etc.  But, the lower the MERV rating, the more frequent you should replace the filter.

Let your HVAC system breathe easy again

IQ Air has recently introduced their NEW NanoMax filters.  NanoMax filters ensure the highest performance filtration with maximum airflow and whole home coverage.

Unlike conventional HEPA filters that require three-month replacement intervals, NanoMax filters can extend the replacement intervals to 12 months, resulting in substantial savings.  Key benefits of the NanoMax are:

  • NanoMax filters exceed MERV 16 requirements
  • Special pleat design in the NanoMax filter results in five times more filter surface area than conventional HEPA filters
  • Conventional filters use two or three filtration effects, the NanoMax uses five for dramatically improved results
  • Remove up to 95% of all airborne particles, including dust, mold, viruses, bacteria, and allergens
  • NanoMax filters require little or no alterations to existing HVAC systems
  • NanoMax filters are all 2″ deep, and are available in sizes: 30×20, 25×20, 25×16, 20×20
