Should You Change Your Cabin Air Filter?

Air quality is important. Your cabin air filter or dust filter cleans the air that enters your vehicle’s interior via heating, vents, and the air conditioning system.

When it’s clean, it will trap dust, pollen, and various airborne materials. This is very important as we are often driving with the windows closed for heating or air conditioning reasons. If you have allergies or respiratory conditions, then it is vitally important that the interior air is as contaminant-free as possible.

How often should you change your cabin air filter?

The recommendations differ from one manufacturer to the next. They can range from 20,000 km to 24,000 km. You’ll also want to take into consideration how often you drive, and where you drive.

Something to look for when it comes to your cabin air filter’s condition is a persistent bad or foul odor. Also, listen to see if the fan sounds like it is working harder than usual while producing poorer results.

Your cabin air filter should be taken out and inspected once per year.

First and foremost, we make absolutely sure your vehicle is safe and comfortable for you and your loved ones to travel in. Whether it is across town for work or play, or across the country for a holiday, Paragon Motors makes sure you get where you want to go.

It’s our business and our promise to you.

Let us look after your vehicle, and you.

    Awesome, highly recommend. Very nice and accommodating. I had to leave my car there for a few days due to traveling. After they were done with the repair they phoned and asked if I'd like my car to be inspected for any other issues that needed to be addressed. -

    Paragon Motors was a delight. Not only did they give us the best price, but they actually fixed what was wrong. We had taken our car to another place first and they misdiagnosed the problem. Rick took it around the block and knew exactly what to do to get it... read more -

    Paragon Motors provides excellent service. They got me in for an oil change and to mount and balance my tires right away when all other shops were booked for a couple weeks. They are very thorough and provide a breakdown of upcoming maintenance they suggest for you to consider in... read more -
