It is always good to check your cabin air filter before winter arrives. Why is this so important you may wonder? Well, a dirty or clogged air filter can cause musty odours in the vehicle and cause contaminants, which in turn will be the air your passengers actually breathe.
How does it work? Cabin air filters clean the incoming air and remove allergens. The cabin air filter helps trap pollen, bacteria, dust and exhaust gases that may find their way into a vehicle’s air conditioning system. The filter may also prevent bugs, leaves and other debris from entering into your vehicle. At certain mileage points the cabin air filter should be changed. Normally this is one of the first elements that get changed when servicing your vehicle.
It is very important to get your cabin air filter changed. A simple thing like this can prevent problems down the line such as interior heating and cooling problems that can in turn lead to extra costs on maintenance and damage by corrosion.
