I just ordered air filters for our HVAC system and learned about the MERV rating. I decided to go with an upgrade kit for my aprilaire 2400s (I have 2 units in my house) that will allow me me to use a higher rated merv filter. After ordering them, I am now wondering if going from Merv 10 to 13 is such a good idea, seeing as how it will increase the air resistance. I suppose at the very least I will have to change them more often, but I have really bad allergies and wanted to go with a better filter.

Any HVAC guys out here? If so, what do you think?

The only downside I can see to increasing the air resistance is that it will make your pump motor work a little harder and could impact its life expectancy.

Thanks, Dr. I haven't changed the filters in a little over a year and in the past, we've gone about a year or more. I think I can offset some of that extra work, by staying on top of it and changing them every 6 months.
