It sounds like a simple thing, but making sure the filters are changed out regularly per manufacturer guidelines can save a significant amount of energy and keep more cool, clean air coming your way! The Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) measures filtration; a higher MERV rating provides greater filtration of the air and will also restrict more air going through your system. Without having a system specifically designed for high MERV rated filters, generally you don’t want to install a filter with a MERV rating greater than 8–10. However, make sure to check with the manufacturer of your system and/or the professional that installed your system. If your MERV rating is too high (and/or dirty) your equipment will not be running as efficient as possible.
