Indoor Air Quality
In order to better understand indoor air quality products, it’s important to know about the basics regarding microns and MERV ratings.
What are Microns?
Microns are a metric unit of length equal to one millionth of a meter. The use of the word micron, in conjunction with water filters, is almost always associated with filtration. The term micron comes into play when you want to know just how small a particle can be and still be trapped by the filter media that you are using.
What is MERV?
MERVE stands for “Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value”. This rating is the standard method in our industry for identifying the efficiency of an air filter. The higher the MERVE rating, the more efficient the filter is regarding the removal of particles from the air.
At Mountain Air, we know everything there is to know about microns, MERV and air quality. In addition to providing heating services and air conditioning services, we also offer high efficiency air filters and cleaners. Keeping your air clean with these products is important for reducing airborne illnesses, reducing allergies and killing germs.
