So your cabin air filer can clean out dust, pollution, pollen and spores, to keep the air in your car nice and clean. And just like your furnace filter, they need to be replaced when they get dirty. Check your owner's manual, but they typically need to be replaced every 12,000-15,000 miles.
The filter is usually either under the hood or under the dashboard. Some are a little tricky to get to, so you'll want to have your Denver Colorado service center, Mastermind Enterprises Auto Repair Shop, take care of replacing them.
Many people don't realize they have a cabin air filter and go to their shop complaining about a funky smell in the ventilation system or the air conditioning not getting their car cold enough. It turns out to be a cabin air filter that was long overdue for replacement – really dirty and starting to smell. A quick replacement and they were on their way and smelling fine.
People who are allergy sensitive can really benefit from a cabin air filter, as it keeps allergens to a minimum. If you're one of them, you'll want to stay on top of your filter replacement schedule. It also helps when the air conditioning is functioning properly, but not getting your car cold enough because the air flow is limited by a plugged or dirty cabin air filter.
Of course if you do a lot of driving in dusty or polluted conditions, you'll need to change your cabin air filter more often.
