Is it Time for a Cabin Filter Replacement?
Most late-model vehicles feature a cabin air filter, which keeps the cabin air free of airborne contaminants as it enters through the heating, cooling, and ventilation systems. The cabin filter is a great tool for keeping the air fresh and clean, and is especially helpful to occupants with allergies or respiratory issues. After a while, this filter becomes clogged by dirt and debris, and needs to be replaced. For skilled technicians and OEM replacement parts, Captain Cook drivers can turn to the service centers at Big Island Honda. We offer locations in both Hilo and Kailua Kona, and are equipped to handle all your cabin filter repair needs!
Why is Cabin Filter Replacement Necessary?
Cabin air filters should be replaced on a regular basis. Once a filter becomes clogged with dirt and debris, it stops functioning properly and no longer removes contaminants from the cabin air. The frequency of cabin filter replacement depends on the manufacturer’s recommendation; check your Honda owner’s manual for more information on when yours should be changed. The service interval can also be impacted by factors like whether you drive in an urban area with heavy traffic, or in a dry climate where dust can clog your filter more quickly.
Signs it’s Time for a New Filter
If you’re noticing a decline in airflow through the heating and cooling system, or smells that permeate the cabin, it’s likely that your filter needs replacing. There may be a reduction in performance that’s not readily noticeable in day-to-day driving, so it’s important that you have your cabin filter checked at least once a year. It’s often enough to simply look at your cabin filter to determine whether it’s clean or needs to be replaced.
