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


Arctic Traveler Canada  carries a complete line of Off Road/Agricultural Cabin Air Filters. Call 1-800-295-4156 for more info.

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.

A/C Preventative Maintenance - a regular HVAC PM program will save you money and decrease down time.

Heaters- Troubleshoot from the ground up

RedDot
Quick Heater Service Tip from Reddot
  • When the status is “heater fan doesn’t work,” check the ground connection for rust, paint, grime, or some other obstruction at the terminus.
  • If the motor doesn’t have a ground wire, its mount serves as a ground connection. Make sure nothing impedes the mount’s ground path.
  • Use a multimeter to make sure you’re getting full voltage to the motor. Once you know the voltage is adequate, you can then look for worn brushes, dirty squirrel-cage fans, damaged fan blades, and other more typical motor problems.

Airtronics Heaters-How To Remove Carbon buildup

Arctic Traveler Canada is a master distributor and technical service expert for ESPAR Airtronics and Hydronics Heaters.
How To Remove Carbon buildup on Airtronic D2 and D4 Burners
To help identify when a burner has excessive carbon build up, Click here and follow the recommendations.

In the event that the burner / flame tube and combustion chamber of the Airtronic D2 or D4 becomes restricted and the heater fails due to carbon/soot build up it may be possible to clean the burner without disassembling the heater by running the heater in high using Kerosene instead of Diesel.

Since the replacement of a burner with carbon build up is not covered by warranty unless the carbon was caused by a defective heater or component this bulletin will assist in reducing the cost and time of cleaning a burner that has caused the heater to fail due to excessive carbon build up.

The excessive build‐up of carbon in the heater is not a result of normal operation of the heater. The build‐up of excessive carbon or soot in the burner / combustion chamber and flame tube as well as the inside of the heat exchanger is in most a symptom of an underlying problem which is the root cause. Therefore, it is very important to identify and correct the root cause so that the burner does not become restricted again. Please refer to the troubleshooting guide and fault code list to identify the problem. Also refer to the installation instructions to make sure the heater and accessories are installed according to the installation guidelines using the correct parts. 

In some cases the carbon build up in the burner may be too severe and the burner would need to be replaced. Unless the root cause of the carbon build up is corrected the replacement or cleaning of the burner will not result in a permanent solution but only a temporary fix.
