An air filter can protect the engine for 12 months or 12,000 miles. However, with some oil-change intervals lasting 7,000 or even 10,000 miles, the air filter may exceed its recommended interval before the next oil change.
If the filter exceeds the recommended interval, it can impact performance and fuel efficiency. Chances are your customer won’t know the last time the cabin air filter was replaced, or even if they have a cabin air filter.
It’s recommended to replace the cabin air filter every 12 months or 12,000 miles. Regular replacement of the cabin air filter will prevent the diminished performance of the HVAC system and health of the evaporator and heater cores.
For the occupants in the vehicle, regular replacement will keep out and capture inert allergens like mold and soot. Bundling air, oil and cabin air filters together can not only save the customer an extra trip to your shop, but it can protect their investment in their vehicle.
