The MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating system was designed to help tell how well an air filter removes particles from the air. What is MERV rating of the filter in your home? You may not even know because, more often than not, the company that services your HVAC system replaces the air filters during the service call. Each air return has a grill that open so that you can replace your air filter. Depending on the size of your home you may have one air return to several. When replacing filters I see a lot of contractors use a cheap flat panel air filters with no MERV rating or a very low MERV rating. I have asked contractor many times when they put that filter in over the years and the answer is always the same. "This is the kind of air filter and I use is my self, those expensive air filters are a waste of money". Most people do not know much about how their HVAC system works so they just rely on what their contractor says. Basically all these cheap air filters do is protect your HVAC equipment from large dust and lint. Essentially the cheap air filters with no MERV ratings can be so porous that particles that can damage your HVAC equipment, can pass right through the filter. Good air filters can protect the air quality in your home and do not have to be expensive.
