Cabin Air Filters – Increase A/C efficiency and Reduce dust, dirt and allergens

A relatively new feature in the heavy duty industry, the cabin air filter is often overlooked in regular vehicle maintenance. That’s unfortunate because the cabin air filter is just as important to the passengers as the engine air filter is to the vehicle and a likely cause of “A/C Not Blowing Cold“. A cabin filter processes the air that enters the passenger compartment via the vehicle’s heating and air conditioning system, increasing passenger comfort by trapping particulates, pollen, and other irritants.

For people with allergies and other sensitivities to airborne agents, the cabin filter represents a significant advance. Replacing the cabin air filter at the recommended interval, or sooner especially in areas of high particulate, allows the A/C system to run at optimal efficiency and passengers to breathe cleaner, fresher air, which makes any journey more enjoyable – Courtesy of Denso Corporation

A/C Preventative Maintenance Schedule

When it comes to Air Conditioning a good Preventative Maintenance program will increase operating time and save money by identifying concerns before they become problems. Once the hot weather hits, implementing planned maintenance allows you to schedule repairs versus reacting to sudden unexpected issues.
Remember to always use caution when performing preventative system maintenance, as ambient conditions (heat load) will increase refrigerant hose temperatures and don’t forget having the right quality parts on hand makes all the difference. See How To and Which Components to Inspect and watch this video to learn more about Basic A/C Troubleshooting.
