What is an air filter? The cabin air filter stops airborne contaminants from being circulated into the vehicles passenger area and helps to minimize additional wear and tear on the heating and A/C system. The Take 5 Oil Change located at 266 Niagara St. can help replace your air filter during your next visit.
The cabin air filter is the filter responsible for filtering the air that is fed into the vehicle's heating and air conditioning systems. The filter traps dust, pollen, and other foreign particles, preventing them from entering the vehicle and polluting the cabin.
The filter itself is a cellulose or paper based unit that comes in various sizes and is specific to the make and model of the vehicle itself.
A dirty or plugged cabin filter can cause reduced air flow inside the passenger cabin and poor performance of the air conditioning and heater units.
Cabin filters are visually inspected and, like engine air filters, should be changed when dirty or every 24,000 Kms.
