MERV8 Pleated Filter
MERV 8: The Premium Pleated Filter
MERV 8 filters utilize 100% synthetic media. They help capture airborne particles and allergens between 3-10 microns in size. An ideal upgrade from standard disposable panel filters. MERV 8 air filters enhance the filtration efficiency in your home or office. Not only will these filters remove the dust, pollen, and lint in your home, but they will actively find and trap harmful pollutants like mold, preventing allergy and asthma triggers and promoting a healthy, safe environment.
Designed for Superior Filtration Efficiency
Made with electrostatically charged synthetic material that draws and captures allergens between 3 - 10 microns, including lint, dust mites, mold spores, pollen, pet dander, and dust.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Protect your family and loved ones with clean indoor air quality at home. Aerostar filters are a simple and cost effective step towards a healthier home environment, free of airborne allergens and particles that can trigger various allergy and asthma symptoms.
Improve Efficiency and Reduce Cost
An Aerostar furnace air filter helps keep your HVAC unit working efficiently by removing dirt and reducing strain on the motor. When your unit runs properly, it consumes less energy, requires less maintenance and will have a longer life. These factors will have an impact on your utility bill and maintenance costs. It is recommended that you change the filter every 60 to 90 days during normal times of year but increase frequency to 30 days during peak summer and winter months when your unit is working the hardest.

About MERV, MPR and FPR Rating
The three rating systems were created by different organizations. MERV is the domestic and international Industry Standard rating system established by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers. The other two rating systems were created by 3M and The Home Depot, but all are rating the same filter.
MERV Rating (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value): As you have already learned, the MERV Rating is the primary rating system used in the industry, both domestically and internationally. Established by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers, MERV rates a filter’s ability to capture and hold particles and pollutants.
MPR (Micro-Particle Performance Rating): MPR Rating is a rating system developed by 3M. It rates the manufacturer’s Filtrete product line and their ability to capture airborne particles smaller than 1 micron.
FPR (Filter Performance Rating): FPR Rating is a rating system developed by The Home Depot for brands sold through their stores, including Honeywell. It utilizes a color code and number scale (4 to 10) that closely resembles the MERV rating.
