Titanium MERV 13 Air Filters

MERV 13 is effective at controlling airborne bacteria, most tobacco smoke and pollutants released through sneezing as well as dust, pollen, dust mites, and pet dander.

They capture 90% micron-sized contaminants. Applicable in residential homes, general surgery suites, smoking lounges, and commercial buildings with superior HVAC units.

So what does MERV 13 protect against?

In short, MERV 8 blocks particles of 3 microns and larger.

These includes:

  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Dust mites
  • Bacteria
  • Pet Dander

Cigarette smoke, smog, and general allergens would best be handled by MERV 11. While, if bacteria, mold spores, and even wood-burning fireplaces are a concern, then you’d need to look at MERV 13.

Who is the MERV 13 best for?

MERV 8 is the minimum standard air filter we recommend for residential use.

That said, to understand the MERV 8, it’s best to look at what it doesn't protect against. If you have allergies or multiple pets, or other chronic breathing problems, you’ll be best served by going up to MERV 11 or MERV 13.

Or, if you are a smoker (or live with one), or if you live in a city that has smog, you should consider a higher rating, as well.

As you can see, much of which filter you need depends on your lifestyle and what kind of air you regularly come into contact with — or what breathing issues you regularly battle.
