It does keep the air in the house cleaner. It is beneficial for someone with asthma even though it is a bit pricey. Make sure your hvac system can handle this higher merv filter.

Very good. Let's see how it does if wildfires this summer smoke up the neighborhood.

First time I've used the A216 I usually get the A213. We'll see if it is a better filter. It seemed like a different filter material

Expensive but does the best job.

My furnace came with a MERV 13 filter and I wanted to switch to a MERV 16. I was concerned that because the MERV 16 filter is a better filter that there would be reduced air flow and the AC evaporator would ice up but no problems! The MERV 16 filter has more convolutions of filter material and has 70% more surface area than the MERV 13 filter. So if you have asthma like do, it is ok to switch from the MERV 13 to the MERV 16 filter.
