Cabin Air Filter
When it comes to general vehicle maintenance, replacing the cabin air filter is not really at the top of the list for most service providers. Some drivers have only heard of the engine air filter or oil filter, while some drivers don’t even know a cabin filter exists.
However, experts here at Auto Excel know exactly how important it is cleaning the cabin air filter. Typically placed under the dashboard or behind the glove compartment, cabin air filters have made their way into every vehicle for the past decades.
The cabin air filter is a vital component of the vehicle’s ventilation system. It is responsible for removing pollutants that get in through the ventilation system and circulates through the cabin. This can be dangerous to our health as we spend most of the time in the interior environment of our cars.
On top of improving health, regular cabin air filter maintenance helps reduce vehicle maintenance costs. Dirty, contaminated air will restrict air flow and demand the vehicle’s ventilation system to stress more work, hence, making it inefficient. It can be extensive to the point of causing motor burnout, which can make it non-functional.
Having the air cabin filter replaced is the only way to go about it. Replacing it on a regular basis is the best way to make it work efficiently and keep all passengers comfortable. Moreover, it can be advantageous over the long-haul.
