All You Need to Know About Your Cabin Air Filter

Published on

March 2, 2021

The cabin air filter in a vehicle protects you from dust, pollen, mold spores, and other particulates to keep your cabin clean and the air you breathe uncontaminated. Clogged cabin air filter works less efficiently and uses more power.

If you want to know when it needs changing, look out for these signs:

  • Reduced or poor airflow, even when the heat or air conditioner is set to high
  • A whistling sound coming from the cabin air intake ducts
  • Dusty, moldy, or musty unpleasant odors coming through the air in your vehicle
  • Excessive noise when the heating or cooling system is running

If you see any of these signs in your car, consider replacing the filter to see if that resolves the problem.

If you're bringing your vehicle to a repair shop, qualified technicians will check your filters free of charge any time you are in for service. They will replace your worn-out filter with a clean new filter made for your car. But before you agree, we recommend you check your filter first. You'd be surprised to see a filter covered in dirt, soot, leaves, grime, and other things, which confirms the replacement service is important.
