Upgrading to a MERV 13 air filter

Because of the threat of covid 19, I’ve become more focused on indoor air pollen levels.

I’m continually on the lookout for better ways to keep our family healthy.

Since the people I was with and I spend the majority of our time at home, I’ve concentrated our efforts on the hygiene of our living space. I suppose that familiar vacuuming, dusting and scrubbing surfaces with disinfectant isn’t enough, however every time someone sneezes, coughs or even exhales, tiny drops of water are released into the air. These droplets contain particles that include viruses. When the moisture evaporates, the particles can remain suspended in the air for a surprisingly long time. They range in diameter from 1 to 5 microns and increase the risk of catching infectious disease. When the A/C or gas furnace starts up and circulates the indoor air, these particles are kept airborne and distributed to every room in the house. I did some research into effective ways to capture these particles and decided to replace to a MERV 13 air filter. This type of filter is especially effective at capturing easily small contaminants. Along with trapping viruses, the filter minimizes the occasion of airborne dust, dander, bacteria, pollen and more. It works to optimize the health of our breathing air and also protects the operation of the heating and cooling system. The filter prevents pollutants from getting inside and accumulating within the A/C and gas furnace. There’s less need for repair and less occasion of system malfunction. MERV 13 filters aren’t overly valuable and since making this replace, I’ve noticed that our apartment stays much cleaner.
