Keeping up with your car's maintenance can be a lot to deal with. One lesser known maintenance task to keep up with is replacing the cabin air filter, which will keep your air conditioning and heat fresh and allergen-free.
What Is A Cabin Air Filter?
The cabin air filter is the filter that your AC and heater runs air through to keep your cabin's temperature comfortable. This filter is crucial for keeping the air fresh and clean, but can unfortunately pollute your cabin if it isn't maintained.
As a result, it's important to know when your cabin air filter needs replacement. This will ensure that any harmful substances like dust, pollen, mold spores, and pollution that have gathered on your cabin air filter won't be blown into your cabin and breathed in on a daily basis.
How Often Should I Replace My Cabin Air Filter?
You should plan to replace your cabin air filter as often as every 15,000 to 30,000 miles, but you can refer to your car's owner's manual for specific advice on maintenance. Additionally, if you notice unpleasant symptoms like dust, odors, or reduced air flow, you can replace the cabin air filter early as a proactive measure.
How Can I Replace My Cabin Air Filter
If you want to replace your cabin air filter by yourself, you can refer to your owner's manual to find where the filter is inside your vehicle and purchase the specific model of filter online. Alternatively, you can bring your car into a shop to have the filters replaced. This protects you from having to breathe in any dust or spores as you replace the old filter.
