MERV = 'Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value' this is used to rate the overall effectiveness of an Air Filter. Below you will find a table that measures the MERV strength and tells you the Application of each unit's effectiveness. In general an Air Filter with a higher MERV Rating is more effective and has a broader application, but most residential homes will find the best use from an air filter between the 5-12 MERV rating.
|MERV RATING||MIN. PARTICLE SIZE||TYPICAL CONTROLLED CONTAMINANT||TYPICAL APPLICATIONS|
|1 - 4||> 10.0 Micrometers||Pollen, dust mites, cockroach debris, sanding dust, spray paint dust, textile fibers, carpet fibers||Residential window AC units|
|5 - 8||10.0 - 3.0 Micrometers||Mold, spores, dust mite debris, cat and dog dander, hair spray, fabric protector, dusting aids, pudding mix||Better residential, general commercial, industrial workspaces|
|9 - 12||3.0 - 1.0 Micrometers||Legionella, Humidifier dust, Lead dust, Milled flour, Auto emission particulates, Nebulizer droplets||Superior residential, better commercial, hospital laboratories|
|13 - 16||1.0 - 0.3 Micrometers||Bacteria, droplet nuclei (sneeze), cooking oil, most smoke and insecticide dust, most face powder, most paint pigments||Hospital & general surgery|
|17 - 20||< 0.3 Micrometers||Virus, carbon dust, sea salt, smoke||Electronics & pharmaceutical manufacturing cleanroom|

Better Air and Savings too! - 01/28/2017
Reviewer: Tom Tarvin
You can trust the name and trust the merv rating, a trustworthy industry standard unlike what's offered at big box stores. Combined with added savings, I am so far very satisfied with my purchase.

Very convenient! - 04/04/2016
Reviewer: Lauren Shaw
This is the second time I've ordered a set of 6 filters for my HVAC from the Honeywell Store. It's a hard-to-find size, so very easy and convenient to order online. It's also a great price. Much easier than making special trips to the local shops, only to find they don't carry this size.

the 16x25x1 Merv8 air filter is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

We received filters just like we were buying at the store. Your price was much cheaper. We are completely satisfied.
