HVAC air filters play a crucial role in maintaining the air quality in your home. There are several rating systems that are used to indicate a filter’s ability to prevent various contaminants circulating through your ventilation systems such as MERV, MPR and FPR. SmartAC.com offers three filter types which have varying ability to filter out certain particles from the air.
