Because Americans today spend so much time indoors, a home air cleaner is a smart purchase. A home air cleaner allows you to regulate the quality of the air in your home. In order to make sure you are getting the right cleaning power for your family, you have to choose the right air filter. But how do you know which filter is right for you?
A MERV 13 filter is ideal for your family if you have serious allergies, asthma, or multiple pets. An even better reason to get a MERV 13 filter is if you have children; children are at a higher risk to develop serious allergies and asthma if they are exposed to high levels of allergens. MERV 13 filters can remove 90% of particles larger than 1 micron, including allergens and bacteria. MERV 13 filters can also remove smaller particles (down to 0.3 microns in size) that other filters miss. These smaller particles include airborne viruses, tobacco smoke, odors, and fumes from cleaning products.
If your family needs a high level of protection from diseases and allergens, order a replacement MERV 13 filter for your American Standard appliance.
