Although often overlooked, the cabin air filter is important for the operation of your vehicle. It works to help clean the air in the car and also to make the air a bit easier to breathe and healthier as well. The cabin air filter is more important than you might imagine and does affect how comfortable you are in your car when you drive.
The cabin air filter is often located in the dash of your car. You can access it through the glove box or compartment on the dash. The purpose of the filter is to purify the air that flows through your cabin. This filter helps to filter out dirt, pollen, pollution and other allergens that might irritate your eyes and your nose or make the air in your car less than desirable to breathe. It can also help catch odors from outside of the car and can help to improve the overall air quality of your cabin air.
The cabin air filter does not have to be changed super often but if you drive more or you drive in areas where pollution is common, you may need to have it changed more often. The air that passes through the filter is going to dirty the filter and affect how often you need to change it out. If you are driving in the city a great deal and the air that is coming in is dirty you are going to have to change it more often. If you are concerned that your filter might need to be changed you can look for things like the strange smells, if your car smells musty, or if your car is smelling a bit musty.
