Features of the 5" Replacement Filters
Field Controls MERV 8 or MERV 11 pleated media contains enough air filtering capacity to clean air for months without restricting air flow or putting a strain on the air handling system. Our filter media is electrostatically “supercharged” for better efficiency and longer service life. It is moisture resistant and will not support the growth of bacteria or other microbes.
Five different HVAC filter models. These home air filters come in three sizes: 16″ x 25″ x 5″, 20″ x 25″ x 5″, and 20″ x 20″ x 5″, and with MERV 8 or MERV 11 rated filtering media.
According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC), indoor air contains three types of pollutants: Germs, Particulates, and Gases. This pollution is a major source for allergic reactions. Some 35% of allergic reactions are due to Particulates, 31% of allergic reactions are due to VOCs, and 34% of allergic reactions are due to Germs.
MERV 8 filters are a basic air filter that offers excellent home air filtration. A MERV 8 air filter is good for homeowners that don’t smoke, do not have pets, and don’t have allergies. MERV 11 filters are best for homeowners with pets and/or allergies. The air filtering benefit with a MERV 11 filter reduces pet dander, dust, pollen and other particles that are present in the home. MERV 13 filters will capture the smallest dust particles, dirt, pollen, mold spores, and pet dander. A MERV 13 air filter is an excellent solution for homeowners with regular allergies and who own multiple pets. A MERV 13 filter is typically more expensive, however the high quality filtration is worth the cost.
What is MERV?
What is MERV? Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, also known as MERV rating, is a measurement scale designed to represent the expected performance of an indoor air filter when trapping particles in the range of 0.3 to 10 microns. The MERV rating is from 1 to 16. Higher MERV ratings correspond to a greater percentage of particles captured on each pass, with a MERV 16 filter capturing more than 95% of particles over the full range. Field Controls offers Media Air Cleaners with MERV 8, MERV 11, and MERV 13 ratings.
