Does the Cabin Air Filter Affect my Vehicle’s Air Conditioning?

It can. Aside from possibly decreasing airflow to the air conditioning, a clogged cabin air filter can also make heating or cooling the car difficult. It can potentially cause foggy windows. A clogged cabin air filter can also cause an odor in the air conditioning vents. In some cases, a clogged cabin air filter could even cause a blower motor to burn out due to the extra work it has to do. That can be a very costly repair. Conversely, a clean cabin air filter can help your vehicle’s air conditioning to be more effective. That’s why it’s always important to always service your cabin air filter. For the best results, replace your stock cabin air filter with a washable, reusable cabin air filter from our wide selection of K&N cabin air filters.
