The Importance of a Cabin Filter

 

The cabin filter in your vehicle is responsible for filtering the air before it enters the vehicle’s cabin. The cabin air filter catches pollen, dust, dirt and other impurities from the air, keeping the air purified for the vehicle and its passengers. It is important to keep the cabin air filter clean so when the heater or air conditioner is running, the air being emitted is quality air. The cabin air filter should be replaced every 15,000 to 30,000 miles or as needed. A cabin air filter cleans air entering your car through the car’s air, heater, and air conditioner vents. The concentration of unfiltered pollutants inside your vehicle can be more than six times higher than the outside air. The air filter helps to remove any air pollutants that can cause health problems. When you replace the cabin filter, you can help improve the air for the occupants in the vehicle, as well as improving the air quality in the cabin of the vehicle.

A cabin filter will help to filters out 99.5% of airborne dust, pollen mold spores, and bacteria particles. This will help to keep the air in the vehicle in the best condition possible, while also making sure it is easy to breathe. You may also notice if there is an issue with the cabin filter based on how much air is produced from the vents. If it seems like not a lot is being produced or blown out, it could be caused by a poor cabin filter. If you ever notice an issue with the filter or anything else for your vehicle, make sure to contact us as soon as possible. By fixing the issue at the first sign, you can help keep the vehicle operating in the best condition possible, without a costly repair bill in the long run.
