Do you know when the last time your Cabin Air filter was changed?

Breathe Better and Live Healthier with a Clean Cabin Air Filter. 

What is a Cabin Air Filter?  A Cabin Air Filter cleans the air entering your vehicle’s passenger cabin via its HVAC system.  Cabin Air Filters filter out pollutants, mold, mildew, road dust, fumes and allergens.

Is a Cabin Air Filter different that an Air Filter?  Yes.  An air filter filters air going into your vehicle’s engine.  A cabin air filter filters air coming into the passenger cabin.  A vehicle’s passenger compartment’s unfiltered inside air can be up to 6 times dirtier than outside air.

How do I know if my vehicle has a cabin air filter?  First check your vehicle’s owner manual.  If you’re still not sure ask our qualified technician at DRIVE Automotive.

What about unpleasant odors in my vehicle?  Eventually a cabin air filter starts to lose its effectiveness as it gets dirty with use.  This may result in unpleasant odors and decreased heating and air conditioning performance caused by restricted air flow.

So when should I change my cabin air filter?  Most car experts and filter manufacturers recommend changing  a cabin air filter every 12,000 miles or every 12 months.  However, depending on your driving conditions, twice a year may prove necessary for maximum benefit.
