Simple Answers from Duncan’s Auto Care: Cabin Air Filter
Posted on March 07,14 by admin
My car has a bad odor when I run the heater or air conditioner. My friend said I might need a new cabin air filter – what’s that?
Duncan’s Auto Care Answer:
A cabin air filter is a special filter that cleans the air that comes into the Oakwood auto owners’ passenger compartments – or cabin – of their vehicles. Most new vehicles sold in GA now have a cabin air filter. A cabin air filter catches dust, pollen, spores and other detrimental pollutants before they can get into your cabin. It’s kind of like the filter on your furnace in your Oakwood home, cleaning the air you breathe inside your sedan.
As Oakwood auto owners can imagine, it eventually gets filled up and can even start to get smelly. So – you just have it replaced. Now some are really easy to access and others are tougher to get to. Your appreciative Duncan’s Auto Care tech will be able to take care of it for you.
Your auto maker’s owner’s manual likely has a recommendation for when to replace the cabin air filter. If you live and drive in GA where there is a lot of dust, pollen or dangerous pollution, the filter will fill up quicker. Of course, if you’re getting a bad odor bring it to the attention of your appreciative Duncan’s Auto Care tech.
