What is a Cabin Air Filter?
A cabin air filter is an essential part of your cars ventilation system. What it does is, it removes pollutants from the air before they get inside the passenger compartment.
A cabin air filter is typically located under the vehicle’s dashboard or it may be attached to the glove box. Others may be located in the engine compartment. In nearly all cases, cabin air filters can be changed in as little as 10 minutes and should be changed out at least every 12,000 to 15,000 miles or once a year.
What does it do? Why do I need one?
A car’s air-conditioning unit re-circulates the air inside the cabin. That also means pollutants; dirt and other harmful elements can get circulated inside vehicle’s cabin. That is why a cabin air filter is a very important part of your car’s climate control system. It sifts through air inside the car’s cabin.
