Air Filter in Charlottetown, PEI
Why should I get this done?
It is recommended that your air filter be replaced at least once a year, more so if you are regularly traveling in dusty conditions.
A clean air filter improves air flow to the engine, increases engine performance and gas mileage, reduces emissions and allows for optimal air flow. Changing the air filter regularly will protect the engine and vital internal engine parts from excess wear and damage that result in driveability issues. The air filter is designed to trap damaging dirt and debris that can damage internal engine parts such as the cylinders and pistons. Engine damage can occur from particles as small as a grain of salt and result in costly repairs.
Having a clean air filter means your HVAC system is not constantly circulating dust, pollen and other small particles in the air. Instead, your system will be able to purify the air, leaving it clean and healthy so you can breathe easy. When you have a dirty air filter the blower fan has to work harder to push air. When it’s working harder, it’s also more likely to wear out from the strain.
Clogged air filters can reduce air flow to the engine, literally choking it, and as a result the emission control systems of the car causing an incorrect air-fuel mixture and spark plug ignition problems which can lead to serious driveability issues and damage to your HVAC system.
