Cabin Air Filters to Improve the Air Coming into the Vehicle from the Outside
The cabin air filter helps traps air-borne particles, chemical pollutants and fumes that may find their way into a vehicle's ventilation system from the outside air, making the interior of the car a healthier place.
Cabin air filters should be replaced according to owners' manual guidelines, usually every 25,000km/15,000 miles. It's not uncommon, however, for cabin air filter replacement to be overlooked in the owner's manual. Do not try to clean this filter and reinstall it. For best results, consult filter manufacturer application charts to see if your car is listed. Most filters are accessible through an access panel in the HVAC housing, which may be under the hood or in the interior of the car.
In conjunction with professional treatments for micro-organisms living inside the vehicle, cabin air filters are a very effective method to improve in-car air quality.
