ProgressiveMedia™ MERV 13 Air Filters – A Low Cost Upgrade with a High Return for Your Indoor Air Quality

Ultravation® ProgressiveMedia™ air filtration’s pleated design has nine times more surface area than a traditional flat air filter. Combine that with Ultravation® UltraStrand™ hypoallergenic fibers that are uniquely shaped and electrostatically charged to attract particles, these filters are built to collect nearly anything that comes their way.

In addition to our highly efficient MERV 11 series, we are now offering MERV 13 filtration. MERV 13 has a better particle capture rating and, like our other ProgressiveMedia filters, are very cost effective for the high level of performance they deliver.

Why should you upgrade to MERV 13? When you compare, you’ll find that Ultravation’s ProgressiveMedia MERV 13 rated filters remove contamination that approach HEPA ratings—at a much lower cost than a HEPA installation.

How MERV 13 air filters outperform MERV 11:

  • MERV 13 filters capture 90% of contamination as small as 1 micron, such as particulates in auto emissions, while MERV 11 collects 65% (which happens to be the lowest particle size for which MERV 11 filters are rated).
  • MERV 13 filters go further and capture 75% of particles as small as .3 microns (such as tobacco smoke).
  • And…Ultravation® MERV 13 filters have NO MORE air flow resistance than MERV 11 rated filters.

 

Even with the better particle capture, Ultravation MERV 13 filters still have the same life expectancy as the MERV 11 (up to one year in typical conditions). And they fit the same Ultravation Media Air Cleaner cabinets as the MERV 11.

So the next time you buy air filters, replace your Ultravation MERV 11 with MERV 13 filters for an easy and economical way to get even cleaner air! Here’s how…
