Most people don’t even know that their vehicle has a cabin air filter, so it’s possible to go a pretty long time without even considering a replacement. This piece of your vehicle is vitally important in making sure the air in your cabin is both clean and breathable, and without it, you may find that your air conditioning is working just a little harder than normal. You’re only ever going to get one body, so it’s important to stay up to date on your cabin air filter so that you don’t subject yourself to pollutants or dust. When you’re gliding through Kenner, Metairie, or Houma, a speedy trip to our service department at Premier Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM FIAT of New Orleans is all you need to get your vehicle up to date with cabin air filter service.
The cabin air filter is your main degree of separation between the air inside your vehicle and the air outside of it. When the air conditioning is pumping in new air, it pulls through this filter first in order to strain out some of the particulates, which can include everything from mold to pollen. This is especially important for pollutants, such as if you’re driving near a chemical plant or even behind a larger vehicle like an 18-wheeler, you may find that you’re subjecting yourself to more exposure than normal. It’s the job of this small part located right behind your glove box to protect you from breathing all of that in.
Every type of filter has an inevitable lifespan where it will no longer work due to either being clogged up or just damaged over time. When you open your vehicle, if you find that there is dust or pollen inside, it could be an early sign that your air filter is no longer working at maximum capacity. Similarly, if you can hear your heating or cooling systems working like a racehorse, it probably means they’re trying to pull air through a filter that’s already filled to the brim. This extra strain can cause noise and may take some of the power away from your air conditioning system overall. The easiest way to tell if your filter is dirty is if you find that your vehicle can’t seem to get rid of bad smells. Without a filter, they can linger fairly easily.
Your cabin air filter is actually fairly inexpensive as far as car parts go, so you can replace it without having to worry about breaking the bank. When you factor in all the pollutants you can be exposed to on even a quick drive, the price of the air filter is nothing in comparison. Depending on what you’re passing through, you could be subjecting yourself to a higher risk of disease or illness, and if it’s pollen season, you’re going to want to avoid all those pesky allergies.
