No one can answer that without looking TBH. A MERV 8 is recommended because most systems will handle that ok so it's a safe bet. A MERV 11 I have seen cause issues but it's not super common on newer homes.

Restrictive airflow can cause your blower motor to over heat if it's a standard, non ECM motor (1 speed heat, 1 speed cooling). If it's an ECM motor the motor may possibly speed up costing you more money and still have overheating/tripping on thermals issues. On the heat side you can start to trip the high limit cycling your heat off and on. On the cooling side you could ice up the coil and possibly slug the compressor with liquid.

If you notice a huge difference from a MERV 8 to 11 in airflow stick with a MERV 8. Some people will comment shortly that a filter is only to protect the equipment, use a fiberglass filter etc. like they do in every thread on filters. Ignore them. Use a minimum MERV 8 pleated filter. If you have issues with a MERV 8 you've got duct work issues, dirty evaporator, dirty secondary heat exchanger, vents closed, lack of/dirty return vents.

Guys, it's not 2005 anymore. The MERV rating does not correlate with air flow at all. The restricted flow of the media in higher MERV rated filters is compensated by increasing the number of pleats in the material thus increasing the surface area significantly. This is one of those 'common knowledge' things that even 'experts' continue to repeat years or even decades after it's no longer applicable like the recommendation to change your oil every 3000 miles even with synthetic oil.

https://www.iallergy.com/pages/co...te-filters

The 3M MERV 12 & 13 filters have LESS restrictive airflow than their MERV 5, 7, & 11.

If you're wary of the manufacturer ratings here are tests done by the California Energy Commission confirming that the MERV 13 has the lowest airflow resistance of the bunch:
https://efiling.energy.ca.gov/Get...ntId=27716

Get whatever you're comfortable spending for the amount of filtration you're looking for and ignore the outdated advice. I would however skip the black carbon filters if you have an older system because those actually are quite restrictive.

Costco has 4" filters, and they're on sale through 1/21 ($39.99 sale price, $10 off a 2-pack of #M Filtrete Ultra Allergen Reduction). If purchased online, one doesn't have to be a memebr but instead pays a 5% surcharge as long as the item is not a "member only" item.

Higher number mean more filtration. Lower airflow though don't use in old houses. Merv8 is good for older houses.

Merv 11 will be pretty air flow restrictive compared to a merv 8. If you want better filtration, I'd suggest going with a media filter.
