Indoor air in the average home is between two and five times as full of pollutants as outdoor air. This makes purchasing a home air cleaner, a smart decision. It protects your family from bacteria, allergens, and other air contaminants, as well as preventing costly repairs to your furnace or air conditioner (which can become filled with these particles). In order to make sure that your air cleaner can deal with these air pollutants, you must change your filter before it fills to capacity.
If you want to remove even more of the contaminants in your air, a MERV 11 furnace filter is an ideal upgrade. Most air cleaners come with a MERV 7 or 8 filter standard, but this higher-quality filter will remove more of the particles in your air. It can also catch smaller particles, up to 80% of particles as small as 1 micron in size. Make sure that your home is free of allergens, insecticides, dust, mold spores, and volatile organic compounds by replacing your filter today.
