When you get in a hot car and turn on the A/C, you can immediately relax as you enjoy the cold, fresh air coming from the vents. Did you know that your vehicle’s cabin air filter is responsible for providing you with clean air, instead of air that’s filled with harmful materials like dust and pollen? That’s right, without a clean cabin air filter, you could be breathing in pollutants that can be damaging to your health. Over time, this filter will become less effective due to a buildup of contaminants, which is why it’s important to schedule cabin air filter service every once in a while.

If you’re located in the Baton Rouge area and you’d like to have a highly trained technician check or replace the cabin air filter in your vehicle, schedule an appointment with our service department at Premier Clearance Center Metairie. Our convenient location is just a short drive away from Covington and Chalmette.


What Is a Vehicle’s Cabin Air Filter?

Have you ever changed the air filter in your home’s HVAC system? If so, you’ve probably noticed a buildup of dust and other materials on the filter that accumulated over time. The cabin air filter in a vehicle works the same way and it also resembles the design of your home’s A/C filter. If you get a closer look, you’ll see that the cabin air filter has a pleated design and a material likely made out of paper-based multifiber cotton. Its job is to collect the harmful materials that can travel through the A/C system and stop them before they can reach you and your passengers.

Is It Time to Replace Your Cabin Air Filter?

It’s easy to forget to change the cabin air filter, especially if you haven’t noticed any problems or changes with your vehicle’s A/C. You can ask one of our technicians to check your cabin air filter next time your vehicle comes in for its routine oil change or tire service and they’ll let you know if it needs to be replaced. In the meantime, you’ll want to look out for the different signs and indicators that your cabin air filter needs to be replaced. You likely need a replacement if:

  • You notice an unusual and unpleasant smell coming from the vents when you turn on the A/C.
  • You hear a weird sound when you turn on the A/C.
  • Your A/C’s airflow is weaker than normal, even on its highest setting.

As soon as you notice a change in your vehicle, it’s better to be cautious and get a professional to take a look. If there is a problem, you’ll want to find it sooner rather than later so you can travel comfortably and with peace of mind in your vehicle.
