What is a Cabin Air Filter?

Cabin Filters are usually the "forgotten filter" compared to the engine filter and oil filter - people don't know it exists. Cabin Filters were introduced in cars built after 2000 to keep the air that comes inside your vehicle through the HVAC system clean. The filter prevents pollutants, such as dust, pollen, smog and mold spores from entering. The filters can also catch rodent droppings, leaves and other unwanted debris.

Reasons to Replace Your Cabin Air Filter

Reasons why it's important to replace your cabin filter:

  • To breathe healthier air
    The cabin filter allows you to breathe clean air, by filtering bacteria, pollen and other harmful pathogens. If you don't change your cabin filter regularly, you may notice unpleasant odours and could have allergic reactions (sneezing, coughing, etc.)
  • To avoid safety and visibility issues
    When a cabin filter is clogged, it may partially block the airflow coming into your car. This can be problematic, especially when you need to defog the windows.
  • To increase the life of your car's A/C heating system
    Having a clean cabin filter will maximize airflow and extend the life of your car's heating, ventilation and air conditioning system.
You should replace your vehicle's cabin air filter every 25,000 to 30,000 kilometres. To replace the cabin filters it's an easy do-it-yourself project, very accessible, just have to remove the glove box to access it!
