A cabin filter is also referred to as a cabin air filter and can be found on most late model cars. The filter as the term suggests cleans the air coming into the cabin via the interior heating, air-conditioning, and ventilation system. The filter helps to catch pollen, dust and various other airborne materials which prevent allergies and some other respiratory related health issues.
When you replace the cabin air filter will vary depending on the vehicle, you drive and how much you drive it. Generally speaking, these should be replaced every 12,000 to 15,000 miles. The maintenance schedule should be mentioned in your vehicle’s owner manual. If you drive in a city with heavy air pollution, then replace the air filter every year. One of the signs that you need to change the cabin filter is reduced air flow through the system even when you turn up the fan to its highest point. You may also experience bad smell. That said always get the cabin air filter checked once every year.
