One of the best ways to improve your indoor air quality is to have an air filtration system installed. These systems work to remove contaminants and harmful pollutants from inside your home, making the air inside easier to breathe and less harmful to your health. When it comes to choosing the right air filtration system for your home, cheapest isn’t always best. Much like any HVAC system, the key to an effective air filter is balancing cost and efficiency.

How Air Filter Effectiveness Is Measured
Air filters are measured for effectiveness with something known as the Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value or MERV rating. MERV ratings range from 1 to 20 with higher ratings equating to better air filtration. That being said, the highest MERV-rated air filters might not actually be the best choice for your system. Higher ratings can mean that it’s harder for your heating or cooling system to push air through the filter, meaning they have to work harder to produce the same level of heat or air conditioning.
So, how do you choose the right air filter? Look for an air filter that:
- Has an intermediate MERV rating (think 5 to 9)
- Filters harmful contaminants and allergens
- Doesn’t put a strain on your HVAC system
- Eliminates unwanted particles, like pet hair and dander
