When you own a vehicle you will want to make sure it is in the best condition possible. This should include bringing it in for regular maintenance inspections. You should also be aware of any issues that the vehicle or parts might have. If you notice an issue at the first sign, you can help prevent it from having a further issue, causing a costly repair bill in the long run. One part that is often overlooked are the cabin filters. If you are not sure if the filter should be changed, make sure to bring the vehicle in and we can inspect it for you.
The primary purpose of cabin air filters, located on most vehicles, is keeping the air inside your vehicle’s cabin clean. The cabin filter is typically located behind the glove compartment or under the hood or dashboard on most modern vehicles. Its job is to filter all of the air that comes through the car’s air and furnace system to prevent pollutants, such as dust, pollen, smog and mold spores from entering. The filters can also catch rodent droppings, leaves and other unwanted debris.
Cabin filters are important for the overall comfort in your vehicle for you and your passengers. The cabin filter helps with allergy problems. They also prevent pollen from getting in the car if you live in an area with a lot of trees. If the air produced is not as strong coming out of the vent, then the cabin filter may need to be replaced.
Besides improving air quality, replacing the cabin air filter may prevent an expensive repair. When the air is dirty, the system will work harder and the motor can burn up. Make sure to bring the vehicle in so we can inspected it regularly for you, and also check the cabin filter. By having the vehicle in the most efficient working condition, you can have an enjoyable ride.
