What is a Cabin Air Filter For?

Your vehicle’s cabin air filter ensures that the air in your cabin is as clean as possible. It does this by filtering out dirt, dust, pollen, and other contaminants that pass through your vehicle’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. Once your cabin air filter catches enough debris, it will inevitably get clogged and need to be replaced. 

When Should I Change my Cabin Air Filter?

Certain driving habits and locations can clog your cabin air filter more quickly. This can include things like driving in a city with poor air quality, frequent visits to construction sites, driving on dusty or gravel roads, or going off-roading when you take trips out of Sugarland. Contact us to ask for advice on how your driving may affect your filter. Usually, it needs to be replaced every 15,000 miles. Otherwise, these signs indicate your filter needs to be changed: 

  1. When you turn on your climate control systems, the airflow is lower than normal. 
  2. You notice lingering unpleasant odors in your vehicle.
  3. There’s more dust settling on surfaces in your vehicle.
