Honeywell media air filters are among the few with a MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value) rating of up to 11. The higher rating indicates cleaner air in your home. Many air filters only offer a MERV 6 rating. It is always best to buy the higher rated filter. Even if you do not suffer from allergies, cleaner air is a great support for good health.

Honeywell media air filters use high efficiency media to collect the smallest dust particles. This keeps your unit clean and operating more efficiently. You can expect a 98 percent efficiency with the filtration media in Honeywell air filters. Honeywell also has a filter impregnated with carbon to capture vapors and gases. This removes offending odors such as cigarette smoke, cooking odors, new paint, and pet odors.

Honeywell media air filters are quick and easy to replace. The filter slides in with no assembly needed. Some Honeywell air filter models are pleated. These are much more efficient than the one-inch filters. The increased surface area from the pleats provides greater capturing ability of even the tiniest 0.3 micron-sized particles. The pleated filters require more space due to the depth. Make sure your Honeywell furnace or air conditioner is designed to handle the thicker filters.

Honeywell has replacements for pre-filters to capture the larger particles before the air reaches the filter. Using a pre-filter will increase the life of your filter. Read your manufacturer's guidelines to see if your furnace is equipped to handle a pre-filter. A filter gage is also available to take the guessing out of when it is time to replace the filter.
