I've been trying to find out which filter would be best for my A/C. My top concern was not to put too much load on the HVAC fan given the age and to reduce electricity consumption. I always assumed it was the 600MPR Dust & Pollen or the 300 MPR Dust. So I asked 3M for the data on the Filtrete filter and this is what I got.

SUMMARY: The Ultra Allergen 1500MPR (for 1 inch depth HVAC) is the LOWEST pressure at 0.15 (vs .20 for the MPR 600). So it didn't make sense for me to go for MPR 300, MPR 600 or MPR 1000.

The complete response from 3M below:

Generally speaking, for most residential HVAC systems, the filter will become restrictive when it reaches a .5 pressure drop.
All of our filter media fibers are polypropylene and polyolefin plastic which will remove particles that measure 3 to 10 microns.
Microparticle Performance Rating (MPR), MERV Ratings, and pressure drops are as follows:

Elite Extra 2400

For the last several years I’ve been using a reusable filter that can be cleaned every month and I thought it was doing a great job.
We have a lot of black furniture in our house so it’s very easy to tell when it’s time to dust, pretty much twice a week. I had always assumed that dust was caused by the dirt that enters your home so there wasn’t a whole that can be done to correct it.
Then I started reading about what dust was really made of and it’s discussing. So I study which air filters gave me the best filtering quality for my money and the clear winner was the Filtrete 1500.
Wow, what difference it made in the dust buildup on my furniture. It now takes about 1 weeks to accumulate the same amount of dust that that used to accumulate in about 3 days. I can’t believe it was breathing all of that extra stuff into my lungs every day.
I’ve used the 1500 for 2 months and I’m getting ready to change it for the first... Read more
I've been using Filtrete 1500 filters for a few years, they work well for us so I needed to reorder this season. Amazon shipped a product from 3M with the Filtrete name but no MPR or MERV rating. I returned them and reordered, same thing, now the site has a little note at the bottom that indicates some new packaging but the picture on the website still shows a filter with the 1500 MPR. The repackaging note on the website says its a 1500 mpr but it doesn't say that anywhere on the product. At $15 a piece I expect 3M to put an MPR rating on the filter. Other sources still sell Filtrete filters with the MPR rating listed on each filter. I'll now have to order from Lowes or Home Depot. Bad move by the normally reliable amazon.
