A cabin air filter efficiently cleans the air that comes through the vents and into the passenger compartment of your vehicle. It does the same thing as your engine air filter, but this one protects the inside of your car. A cabin air filter helps to remove pollen, dust, and other airborne contaminants and respiratory irritants from the air.
Like the engine air filter, a cabin air filter can become clogged over time. This can cause reduced airflow and poor air quality in the cabin. It is important to replace your cabin air filter regularly, especially if you have allergies or respiratory problems. Your vehicle is a siphon for free-flowing, airborne particulates. When air flow is stagnant, it irritates your allergy symptoms-- but the cabin air filter can help with that.

So, what is so important about changing your cabin air filter?
1) Your Car is DIRTY
The cabin air filter keeps the quality of the air you breathe while driving fresh and clean. Cabin air filters remove pollen, dust, smoke, and other airborne contaminants from the incoming airflow before it enters the cabin. This helps to keep your vision clear while driving and reduces respiratory irritation.
Your car is a crowded space. Dander, pollen, dust, skin cells, hair, where does it all go? It collects inside your cabin, especially front and passenger seats.
A cabin air filter creates airflow while your vehicle is running, and removes airborne particles that accumulate and get trapped around your front seat. Plus, it keeps odor molecules away.
2) Maintenance is a Money-Saver
Keep your ventilation performing smoothly. Your ventilation system will last longer and save you more money in the long run. The air vents filter more than just airborne particulates. It delivers your heat and A/C, as well as your breathing air!
Furthermore, the cabin air filter can be washed and reused. However, this is optional and it is not recommended to reuse more than one time.
3) Reduce Driving Stress
Maintaining your cabin air filter also contributes to an easier driving experience. Fog and condensation forms inside of the car as well, especially with cars that are poorly ventilated. This makes the inside of the vehicle difficult to defrost, defog, and increases the chance of getting into a motor vehicle accident.
A new cabin air filter will help to reduce fog and condensation buildup.
