Cabin Air Filter Replacement
When you drive, dust, smog and other pollutants build up inside your vehicle. When your cabin air filter isn’t doing its job, all those pollutants decrease the quality of the air you breathe in your car.
A cabin air filter filters the air inside your car and makes the air you breathe cleaner. A good cabin air filter prevents air impurities from building up inside the vehicle and creating an unhealthy mix of pollutants. Without a properly functioning filter, drivers are exposed to pollution levels 6 times greater than the outside air.
Cabin air filters should be replaced every 12K-15K miles, though if you drive frequently in dusty and poor air quality environments you might need to replace them more frequently.
Benefits of Replacing Your Cabin Air Filter:
Aside from the basic health benefits of cleaner air, a functioning cabin air filter:
- Reduces and/or prevents allergens, mold spores, pollen, dust, smog and other pollutants from entering the vehicle ventilation system.
- Provides relief for those who suffer from asthma, allergies and other respiratory conditions.
Engine Air Filter Replacement
An engine air filter is different from a cabin air filter. Rather than cleaning the air you breathe, it cleans the air entering your engine.
For every gallon of gas, your engine takes in thousands of gallons of air. All that air sucks in contaminants like dust, pollen and insectsc which can harm your engine if not properly filtered.
A dirty or clogged air filter reduces the amount of air drawn into the engine reducing engine performance and fuel economy. Regular engine air filter replacement is good preventative maintenance. It may improve your gas mileage, too!
Replacement intervals for your air filter varies based in part on your driving conditions. We recommend you check your engine air filter at service and replace it about every 10K-15K miles.
