Types of Air Filters
There are a number of different types of air filters to choose from. The most common type you are likely to need is a mechanical air filter as an upgrade for your air handler. The air handler in your home’s HVAC system should already have a filter of some sort that is rated for basic filtration – usually just enough to keep the furnace and air conditioner running smoothly.
However, it can be upgraded from this to provide more sufficient filtration – removing a much larger percentage of the contaminants that develop in modern homes. Mechanical air filters with media filters are rated on the MERV scale between 1 and 16. The higher the rating, the more efficient the system becomes at removing those contaminants.

At the top end of the scale – at an equivalent of 17–20 on the MERV scale – are HEPA filters. HEPA filters can remove 99.97% of contaminants as small as 0.3 microns – effectively anything in your home that might trigger asthma or allergy symptoms. The main drawback of a whole house HEPA filter is its cost and the fact that it can lead to more frequent cleanings for your ductwork and HVAC system.
Another common type of air filter is an electronic filter. Electronic filters work by ionizing air and separating it from particles like smoke. Because they work on such a small scale, these air filters are very effective in situations where the biggest concern is an inhalant like smoke or a type of gas.
