Let’s just for a second ignore the fact that reusable or “cleanable” HVAC filters exist. Now if we’re talking replaceable filters, like the majority of us have, there are plenty of filter types to discuss. But first off, let’s talk about MERV…
What is the MERV Rating?
Many years ago, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers established a rating system to determine the energy-efficiency and effectiveness of individual filters. This rating system takes into account energy-efficiency, air-quality effectiveness, and the impact of your filter on home health.

Many filter types (HEPA, for instance) are impractical or downright unusable for central and heat pump air conditioning.
