Cabin Air Filter

It’s a scenario we’ve all experienced at one time or another – it’s the middle of summer and you get in a hot car, turn on your AC and instead of feeling the air cool of, it just stays hot and stale. If you’re like most of us, you smack the dashboard, only to get no results. We’ve all been there!

A Few Facts About the Cabin Air Filter…

In car models made later than the year 2000, there is a cabin air filter built into the car car’s AC system. Its job is to filter outside air particles and pollutants that would otherwise come inside the car while you breathe it all in. However, with a filter sitting near the engine, you know it’s bound to pick up a lot of other pollutants too. They can get clogged up, just like your air filters at home. Your car’s cabin air filter needs to be cleaned in order to maintain the clean air you breathe while in your car.

Cabin air filters should have preventive maintenance just like any other air filter would. If the filter is not changed on a regular basis, no clean air can pass through the filter. Might seem overly simple, but it’s the simple stuff that matters sometimes. Often, you will find that simply replacing the cabin air filter is all that is needed to restore air flow to your AC system.
