Cleaner and Healthier Air

According to the EPA indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air.* That’s why a Carrier pleated air filter with a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) of 8 can help provide cleaner, healthier air inside your home by filtering out select airborne pollutants that flow through the filter, including large dust particles, pollen, dust mite debris, mold spores, and most pet dander. Designed to fit all standard brands.

What is MERV?

MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value and is the standard comparison of an air filter’s efficiency. The MERV scale ranges from 1 (least efficient) to 16 (most efficient) and measures a filter's ability to remove particles from 0.3 to 10 microns in size. For even cleaner air, consider purchasing a MERV 10 or MERV 13 Carrier air filter.


Higher MERV-rated filters can cause a pressure drop and resulting drag on HVAC equipment, depending on the system. Please consult with your local Carrier expert for the recommended MERV size for your system.

How Often Should I Change My Air Filter

We recommend changing your MERV air filter at least every 3 months depending on usage and other factors. Changing your MERV air filter regularly not only keeps your indoor air cleaner, it also helps optimize the air filtration performance of your home comfort system, potentially saving you energy and money. Your air conditioner, furnace or heat pump system will thank you when you regularly change your MERV air filter.
