MERV 13 filters are the minimum rating required for LEED-certified buildings. We’re happy to say that Twin City Filter Service now carries MERV13-16 filters.
The New MERV 13-16 Filters
We’re listened to your requests and added a new selection of MERV 13 and higher filters that satisfies LEED requirements. A MERV-13 or higher rated filter is required in any system in a regularly occupied building where the air is re-circulated. It’s rated adequate for commercial buildings, and it’s a good choice for office buildings or stores where air circulates throughout the day.
The new MERV 13 filters at Twin City Filter Service are available in a range of standard sizes and frame types. We can also make custom filters for you. You can order them individually or in packages to have them on hand for multiple units or larger buildings.
LEED-Certified Buildings Are the Future of Green Buildings
If you’re unfamiliar with the term LEED-certified, you may wish to learn more about it. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. Projects seeking LEED-certification earn points on a range of sustainability issues. Most LEED buildings are more energy-efficient than non-LEED buildings. Great care is taken on managing greenhouse gas emissions, maintaining air and water quality, and minimizing energy use.
Depending on your project’s overall LEED score, it can earn a Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum (the highest) rating. Buildings with LEED ratings may be more appealing to consumers and businesses, leading to premium rents or sales prices, depending on the market.
Because LEED buildings require energy efficient systems, as well as focus on air and water quality, the best filtration you can use adds to the overall project effectiveness. So consider visiting Twin City Filter Service to speak with Matt and the team about your MERV 13-16 and other filter needs.
