For your oven or air conditioner, the Merv 13 20x20x2 air filter efficiency ratings make these filters an excellent upgrade to disposable filters and pleated filters commonly used in homes, hospitals, laboratories, pharmaceutical plants, commercial office buildings, and any system where a higher degree of clean air is necessary. Pleated air filters are more effective at capturing airborne contaminants than non-pleated air filters because they provide more surface area for trapping pollutants. These filters are often installed in HVAC systems in food and beverage, healthcare, hospitality, education, and industrial facilities to remove contaminants from the air stream and improve air quality.
Merv 13 airfilters offer close to 90% efficiency for particles between 3 and 10 microns in size (such as mold spores, dusting aids, and cement dust).A filter's MERV rating indicates how well it removes contaminants from the air based on the size of the particles it can effectively capture.
MERV 13 LEED pleated air filters are designed to meet the air filtration efficiency criteria required to earn points for Green Building Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. They also provide between 80% and 85% efficiency for filtering particles between 1 and 3 microns in size (such as legionella, lead dust, humidifier dust, charcoal dust and nebulizer droplets) and between 35% and 50% efficiency for filtering particles between 0.30 and 1 micron in size (such as bacteria, most smoke, nuclei sneezing, insecticide powder, copier tonic and face powder).When it comes to improving indoor air quality, Merv 13 air filters 20x20x2 are an excellent choice. They provide superior filtration efficiency compared to disposable or pleated filters while meeting the LEED certification requirements. Investing in these filters is a great way to ensure that your home or business is getting the cleanest air possible.
