MERV is an acronym for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. This is now an international industry standard set up by the committee that oversees the filter industry. This standard is used for determining the filters ability to capture and hold dirt and dust in specific size ranges. Some filter manufacturers use their own rating system.  Which is not approved as an industry standard.  Always ask for the standard MERV number.
