"Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) is a standard that rates the overall effectiveness of air filters. Higher value MERV rating equates to finer filtration, meaning fewer dust particles and other airborne contaminants can pass through the filter."

Sorry guys, I was joking. But thanks for the quick replies!!

But in all seriousness, is the electrostatic supposed to attract and hold dust better?

Not for the 1085 MPR. MPR is 3M's own rating system and the range of 1000-1200 corresponds to MERV 11.

MERV 8 is a 600 on the MPR scale.

20x25 not available for pickup around 66221 unfortunately. Shipping kind of kills it. Good deal though!

I lied. Shipping is free on the last step.

Actual scientific proof that filters with a higher rating ARE NOT more restrictive for airflow due to all of the extra surface area they provide (Pleating). Actual airflow differences are less than 5%

Filters provide 2 functions:
1. Clean the air you breath (Higher ratings are better)
2. Keeps dirt from building up on evaporation coils which shortens the life of your HVAC system (Higher ratings are better)

It is important to remember that since these trap more dirt/particles they do need to be replace more often.
Yes, there is a limit as household HVAC units are not meant for things like HEPA filters. But used properly a better filter is just that a better filter.

Filtrete is one of the better filters, but tends to be a bit overpriced. Flanders filters and Nordic Pure filters are also very good brands,

Yes! Just like size 5 diapers only hold 5 pounds but size 8 can hold up to 8 pounds before they need to be changed.
