Cabin Air Filter
Are you aware that your vehicle has a cabin air filter? If your vehicle is model year 2000 or newer, there’s a good chance it is equipped with a cabin air filter.
Everyday driving encounters and accumulates contaminants such as pollen, dust, mold spores, and smog that can easily enter a vehicle’s passenger compartment through the air conditioning, heating and ventilation systems, making the air in the car much dirtier than the air outside.
You can protect yourself from these contaminants by replacing your cabin air filter annually or more often in areas with heavy contaminants, or when heating or cooling efficiency is reduced. Cabin air filters clean the incoming air and remove allergens. That’s especially beneficial to people who suffer from allergies.
If the cabin air filter is not replaced regularly it will cause musty odors in the vehicle and, over time, the heater and air conditioner may become damaged by corrosion. A dirty or clogged cabin air filter actually causes passengers to breathe more fumes and particles when riding in the car than they would walking down the street.
