Your Cabin Air Filter helps improve the air quality inside of your vehicle. It also protects parts in your a/c system from becoming clogged or coated in dirt and dust. But when do you need to change your cabin air filter? Cabin air filters become restricted or clogged once they have become full of particles.
How often your filter needs to be changed depends on the conditions your vehicle encounters:
• Vehicles that are driven off-road or on construction sites are exposed to lots of dust and debris
• If you park under or near a tree we also find that leaves and pollen make their way into the cabin filter
• If you regularly transport pets you will also find that your Cabin Air Filter will become full of pet fur
All of those conditions may cause your Cabin Air Filter to need changing more frequently.
The mechanics at Tim’s will check the condition of your Cabin Air Filter at every service. If your filter is clean, we will snap a picture and re-install it, if the filter is dirty we will snap a picture and recommend replacing it.
