The cabin air filter cleans the air in the passenger compartment and filters both pollen and debris from the air you breathe. The Pro Oil Change in St. Thomas can help replace your cabin air filter during your next visit. Replacing the cabin air filter provides cleaner air in the passenger cabin, better running heating and air conditioning systems and prevents the possible blower fan failure.
The cabin air filter is the filter responsible for filtering the air that is fed into the vehicle's heating and air conditioning systems. The filter traps dust, pollen, and other foreign particles, preventing them from entering the vehicle and polluting the cabin.
The filter itself is a cellulose or paper based unit that comes in various sizes and is specific to the make and model of the vehicle itself.
While a soiled cabin air filter can affect the AC system, a dirty engine air filter can cause engine performance problems. Replacing an old engine air filter can go a long way towards increasing the vehicle's efficiency. In fact, changing a dirty engine filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10%.
Cabin filters are visually inspected and, like engine air filters, should be changed when dirty or every 24,000 Kms.
