Service Tip

The Importance of the HVAC Filter

Cabin air filters are devices that clean the air that gets into a car’s cabin. They are placed in a vehicle’s ventilation system and trap particles of dust, moisture, soot, and even bugs. Cabin air filters are real lifesavers for people who hate to deal with the smell of dust, dirt, and exhaust fumes in their car.

If you don’t change your cabin air filter, the filter will become more clogged with dirt and debris and the efficiency of the filter and you car’s HVAC system will be compromised. The air volume into your passenger compartment will be continually reduced which will lead to the issue of foul odors inside your car.

You should not run without the cabin air filter. Not only does it prevent all those particles from being breathed in by you and your passengers, but it also prevents particles from getting into and damaging the fan and ducting mechanisms in your HVAC system.

The most common symptom associated with a bad cabin air filter is poor air flow from the vehicle’s interior vents. An excessively contaminated cabin air filter will not be able to filter the incoming air as effectively as a clean filter would. As a result, this will cause restricted air flow for the AC system.

Most manufactures recommend changing the HVAC filter every 15,000-25,000 miles or at least once a year. In some areas the filter will require replacement more often to maintain maximum efficiency.

We inspect the filter during most services for you.
