When it comes to car maintenance and repair, the engine air filter is something that many car owners may not pay too much attention to. However, it is another important part of your car's system. The cabin air filter works to clean the air that comes in through the ventilation, heating, and air conditioning system. The air filter catches pollen, dust, and other airborne materials. This helps to protect your respiratory system and lungs from potential irritants. The manufacturer's recommendations on how often to replace your air filter vary depending on the car. This amount ranges from every 12,000 to 15,000 miles or longer. Take a look at the maintenance schedule in your car and see what is recommended. Where you drive the car influences the air quality and thus how often you should change it. A place with heavy traffic, such as in an urban area, has poorer air quality, and you can replace the air filter in the cabin once a year or more often. This can also be the case in a desert climate.
If the air filter has any visible damage, such as a crack, this can be a sign that it needs to be changed. Another indication is if you turn on the air conditioning and there is a noise. Also, if there are persistent bad odors, this can be a sign that your air filter needs to be changed. The air filter is accessible by going behind the glove box, under the dashboard, or under the hood. Take a look at the air filter that's changed and see what it looks like. You might see leaves, twigs, pollen, grime, soot, or insects. You certainly don't want to be breathing all of that in! Contact us today for an air filter replacement. We have a comfortable waiting room stocked with newspapers and magazines that you can relax while you wait.
