The air you breathe inside your car
Check out this video that explains everything you need to know about your air system and cabin air filter in your car.
Should You Change Your Cabin Air Filter?
Air quality is important. Your cabin air filter or dust filter cleans the air that enters your vehicle’s interior via heating, vents, and the air conditioning system.
When it’s clean, it will trap dust, pollen, and various airborne materials. This is very important as we are often driving with the windows closed for heating or air conditioning reasons. If you have allergies or respiratory conditions, then it is vitally important that the interior air is as contaminant-free as possible.
How often should you change your cabin air filter?
The recommendations differ from one manufacturer to the next. They can range from 20,000 km to 24,000 km. You’ll also want to take into consideration how often you drive, and where you drive.
Something to look for when it comes to your cabin air filter’s condition is a persistent bad or foul odor. Also, listen to see if the fan sounds like it is working harder than usual while producing poorer results.
Your cabin air filter should be taken out and inspected once per year.
