MERV 8 is a good compromise.

I'm surprised the tech gave you grief. The few times I've had dealings with the HVAC people and from what I've read online, they tend to stick with the cheap fiberglass filters and justify that by saying the filter is just there to keep large debris out of the blower. If you want air purification, buy a separate purifier/filter.

That having been said, when I've upgraded, I've used something in the MERV 7-8 range.

My HVAC guy says cheaper is better and change on a regular basis. Too much restriction isn't good.

I buy cheaper fiberglass ones and change them more often. Have been told by techs as well that this is a better way to go.
