There is often confusion when it comes to Cabin Air Filters vs. Engine Air Filters. Both do the same job of filtering out dust, pollen, and particles in the air. They are just located in different parts of the vehicle.
Cabin Air Filters are often in the interior of your vehicle. They are used to remove particles from the fresh air being brought into the cabin. They also filter air being re-circulated by your climate control system. A clean cabin air filter helps with odor and air quality inside your vehicle. It also protects parts of your climate control system from becoming clogged and coated with dust and particles.
Engine Air Filters are almost always accessed under the hood of your vehicle. They are used to remove particles from the air entering your engine. A clean engine air filter ensures optimal performance and fuel economy for your vehicle. It also protects internal engine parts from scarring and wear from contaminants.
