Did you know about your vehicle's cabin air filter? There's a device in your car, similar to the one you have at home, that makes sure the air you breathe is free of harmful dirt, dust, pollen, allergens, and more. We often check this filter for customers during their oil service, and we will recommend a change when the filter appears to be dirty. Most motorists should change it every 15,000, give or take.
Why Change the Cabin Air Filter
- Improves HVAC Air Flow - When this filter is dirty, the engine has to work harder to power your heating and air conditioning system. Therefore, if you want to minimize fuel consumption, keep this filter clean at all times.
- Better Your Health - If you or your passengers are sensitive to allergies, please be more cautious of this filter. The cabin air filter reduces the amount of these allergens inside the vehicle, so you can breathe without a sneeze.
- Limits Odors - Sometimes excess moisture can grow mold in the filter and leave a lingering odor. If your filter is gross and covered in mold, it is best to change it ASAP. This can also make you sick in severe cases.
- Eliminates Pollutants - Smoke, smog, ash, and other pollutants are floating in the air all the time. You don't want to breathe that in when driving. The air filter keeps this outside of your vehicle, so you have a more pleasant ride experience.
