While higher MERV and HEPA filters are efficient at trapping smaller particles at a higher rate, not all air conditioning units have the needed air pressure capacity or power to pull air through a higher efficiency filter. Friedrich's robust, commercial-grade product lines VRP, Vert-I-Pak, and Kühl Room Air Conditioners have all been tested for use with MERV 13 filtration and are able to provide the best in indoor air quality protection, while never sacrificing your desired temperature and comfort.
Pleated filterers that trap particles as small as .3 microns, keeping dust, debris, lint, pollen, pet dander, smoke, smog, mold spores, bacteria, and microscopic allergens out of your space. It’s also the most efficient filter for larger particles:
MERV, or an air filter’s Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value - measures how effectively the filter stops dust and other contaminants from passing through the filter and into the air stream.
Filters with a MERV 13 rating traps small particles more effectively than filters with lower MERV ratings.

Now more than ever before, there's a need for improved indoor air quality. Our response to the need for cleaner air led the way to the development of MERV-13 filtration in our Kuhl Room AC. Our Kuhl line is the first and only unit capable of ASHRAE recommended MERV-13 filtration. Friedrich's Product Manager of Consumer Product, Brittany Calderon, takes you step-by-step how easy it is to install your MERV-13 Filtration kit on a Kuhl.
Bravo to Friedrich for listening to the industry and developing a solution to every engineer’s nightmare when applying PTACs to living units while negotiating the ventilation requirements specified in the local mechanical codes.
