MERV 13 PREpleat® Benefits & Features
This MERV13 filter has up to a 98% overall average particle size efficiency and blocks 85%+ of 1-3 micron particles, and 50%+ of particles 0.3-1 microns. Bacteria and viruses are typically carried by particles 0.5 microns and higher.
Most homes do not require anything above a MERV13 filter and can actually cause strain on your HVAC system due to restricted air flow. Think hospitals, smoking lounges, & manufacturing plants for MERV14 filters and above.
