Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value is a rating of the effectiveness of air filters in removing particle contaminants from the air and is dependent upon the particle size.
The Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value is the standard comparison of the efficiency of an air filter. The MERV scale ranges from 1 (least efficient) to 16 (most efficient), and measures a filter's ability remove particles from 3 to 10 microns in size.
(Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) A numerical system of rating filters based on a minimum particle size efficiency. A rating of 1 is least efficient; a 16 is the most efficient. See also ASHRAE 52.2.
