Cabin Air Filter in Summerside, PEI
Why should I get this done?
Once a year we recommend that you replace your cabin air filter. You should replace it more often if you regularly drive on dirt roads or if you have allergies. A functional cabin air filter is essential in keeping the inside of a vehicle free of pollutants and ensuring clean air gets to you.
A cabin air filter stops contaminants such as dirt, dust, smoke, smog, pollen, mold spores, and exhaust gasses from entering the cabin of a vehicle through the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. It also keeps out other debris, such as bugs, rodent droppings, and leaves. A dirty cabin air filter can produce a dusty, musty stench, especially when the HVAC system is turned on.
If left in place beyond its life span, a dirty filter will make a vehicle’s HVAC system work harder, which can cause the motor to burn up and reduce the amount of air flowing from the vents which will impact the efficiency of the heating and cooling system in your car. Poor efficiency can lead to other problems, including a loss of air volume, bad odors in the cabin, or premature failure of HVAC components.
Another problem that arises when airflow is compromised is the system’s ability to clear fog or condensation from the car’s windows. Dirty air can cause condensation to build up on the windshield, making it hard to see the road ahead of you.
