2020 put new emphasis on air filtration and prompted a need for higher efficiency air filters in residential and office buildings. Prior to the pandemic, these types of buildings typically utilized air filtration systems with MERV 1 to MERV 8 filters.
Protecting against airborne illnesses can be enhanced by using filters with a higher MERV rating. Because of this, the CDC is now recommending building owners install the highest efficiency filters that do not compromise the HVAC system itself. This means that we may be seeing an evolution in HVAC systems and system efficiency as a whole.
This blog dives into the considerations for high efficiency air filters moving forward after the COVID-19 pandemic. Read now.
