Here are the top reasons oil and filter changes are so important:
The cabin air filter, found in most late-model vehicles, cleans the air that comes into the interior through the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system.
It catches dust, pollen, mould spores and other airborne material. This can make riding in a car unpleasant, especially if you have allergies or other respiratory problems.
A clogged filter can also cause major window fogging problems and reduce the efficiency of the heating and cooling system.
When to replace it?
There’s another reason why the scheduled oil change is so important. You will have all fluid levels and quality inspected and topped off to prevent damage. If there is a significant fluid loss, the problem will be found before it leads to an accident or costly repair. Another piece of mind will be the routine leak, tyres, suspension and brake check.
When it comes to keeping up with general vehicle maintenance, changing the cabin air filter probably isn’t at the top of the list. If you’re like most drivers, you are still driving with the original filter and it’s likely clogged.
Depending on how long the filter has been in use, you might be shocked at what you see. You might find leaves, twigs, insects, and dust that literally cover the entire surface that comes in contact with incoming air.
Some signs that you need a new cabin air filter are reduced air flow through your climate control system or persistent bad odours.
Even if you don’t have these warnings, you should have the filter checked at least once a year. This will ensure proper filtering of pollutants from entering the vehicle’s cabin.
