This is MERV 11, how safe are these in my system when every HVAC person keeps telling me MERV 8 is best?
Get the ones where when you place you hand on other side, youre easile able to see the shadow. People think more micro filter means it will block more stuff. But it will also block more air from pulling, thus more stress on your AC. Bascially get the ones that are not too cheap or too expensive

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.

Bought these and compared to 1200 Filtrete sold by Home Depot. Sams version has multi-density layered element. The incoming dirty air hits coarse fuzzy media, and progresses to a finer filter media at the exit air flow side. 3M is attempting to garnish lower pressure drop while still providing pollen filtering results.

I work for a wholesale distributor and our M8 pleated filters are $2 a piece to licensed contractors for common sizes. What a ripoff to consumers.

I agree. But on the same hand I see those same local contractors turn right around and charge prices higher than in this deal for those filters and have seen 1000% mark ups on parts. Many local filter companies will sell to the local public and will have prices better than in this deal but it's a YMMV so do a local Google search and call and ask.

Why are all priced the same? I assumed that smaller ones would be a few $ cheaper?

I know the guy on here said to ignore people who say Merv 8 is too much, but after using countless different types of air filters from Merv 3 to Merv 11 let me tell you...

Merv 8 is too much and restricts airflow.


The absolute best filter with the best amount of filtration and the best amount of air flow is this Merv 4 filter on Amazon.

Trust me, you won't find a better filter for your system or your house

It really sucks having a weird size filter that they never have. Sigh.

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.

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.

i think it would depend if your filter size is too small for your system...

if you have a 20x20 filter on the same system i have a 24x24 filter i would guess i could use a 11 the same as you can use a 8.. or if someone has dual intakes on their ac system they can use better filters..

i think sometime people upgrade their system but dont upgrade their filter opening which was install in the 70's...
