I don’t think this is a good idea. The reason is that the evaporator coil is right on the other side of that filter. Evaporator coils, by design, condense moisture out of the air and are always wet (that’s the drip coming from the unit), which will attract and hold all of the dust that gets past your filter. A filter fine enough to catch the smaller dust particles will restrict airflow to the unit, which will cause the coil to freeze. Either way, you are looking at premature equipment failure.

+1 i dont think it would be wise to use it for that purpose hence the name air conditioner not cleaner.
