Cabin Air Filter Maintenance: What you should know

Your vehicle’s cabin air filter is crucial to maintaining circulation and performance of your cooling system as well as maintaining the air quality in your car. In this week’s blog, Quanz Auto Body in Albuquerque, NM discusses the importance of maintaining your vehicle’s cabin air filter.


Why does the Cabin Air Filter Matter?

The cabin air filter is a device that helps improve air quality and filters out pollution from the air that circulates inside your vehicle. It is attached to the outside air intake of the ventilation system and uses a variety of different filtration media to perform. The cabin air filter is also known as the AC filter or air conditioning filter. It is designed to remove dust and other allergens from entering the passenger compartment.

Changing your Cabin Air Filter

If you have a dirty cabin air filter, your vehicle can begin to have a host of problems that can end up in costly repairs, such as:

  • Air conditioner will run less efficiently, wasting horsepower
  • Air flow to the passenger compartment will decrease

It is also crucial to have a clean air filter because of its role in your vehicle’s ventilation system. It is built to protect your passengers from common pollutants in the air and other harmful allergens as they ride in your car. Replacing your cabin air filter and cleaning it is easy to do and worth the time. For optimal efficiency and to keep your vehicle’s ventilation system running its best, it is important to maintain your cabin air filter on a regular basis.
