Importance of Your Cabin Air Filter

Importance of Your Cabin Air Filter

If you live in Greater Toronto Area, then you are aware of all the time you, your friends, and your family end up spending in your car, truck, and SUV. Whether it's quick trips to the market, commuting, or even taking vacations, you rely on your vehicle almost every day of the year. While most drivers pay close attention to the health of their engines, brakes, and suspension, sometimes we forget to take air quality inside our car into consideration. Sure, if your wet dog jumps in the back, you notice the smell, but the actual quality of your air is extremely important to everyone's health. Cabin air filters clean the air coming into the passenger area by filtering out road debris, dirt, and other allergens. If not properly maintained, they can become easily clogged thus limited their effectiveness. This can lead to everything from breathing problems to malfunctioning heating and cooling systems, and even your ability to hear the outside world. By keeping your cabin air filter in top condition, you will be able to:

Keep the air inside your vehicle clean
Eliminate dust and other allergens from the air
Preserve your ventilation system at optimal efficiency

While the location of your cabin air filter can differ due to the make or model of your vehicle, it is generally found where air enters the cabin through the HVAC system. The key is to replace this filter on a regular basis. The maker of your vehicle will include a replacement schedule that can be found in your owners manual.

When it is time to replace the cabin air filter in your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM, or Fiat vehicle, it is important to only use official MOPAR parts.
