The cabin air filter is an essential part of the HVAC system in your Nissan vehicle. It removes pollutants, dust, pollen and other irritating particulate matter that affects the quality of the air you breathe when you’re running the heat or AC in your car. The Nissan cabin air filter is made from a fabric-like material that is designed to trap airborne contaminants before they reach your circulatory system. It also keeps the air in your Nissan smelling clean and fresh. Over time, however, the filter gets dirty and ceases to be effective. That’s when it’s time to get a cabin air filter replacement.
The action of an air filter is to trap particulate matter and prevent it from circulating freely in the air inside your vehicle. Over time, the cabin air filter clogs up with all manner of dirt, pollutants and irritants that effectively stop the filter from being effective. Once the filter fills up, you might notice that you see more dust in your car or there’s an odor that hangs around and can’t be eliminated with air fresheners. The overall air quality in your car suffers and becomes noticeable. A dirty air filter can also affect the performance of the HVAC system in the form of reduced air flow through the vents.
You should get the cabin air filter replacement done every 10,000 miles or whenever the filter is visibly dirty. The air quality of the areas you live, work and visit all have an impact on how frequently your cabin air filter should be replaced. If you’re spending a lot of time in an area with lots of car traffic, your cabin air filter may fill up and require replacement sooner than 10,000 miles. But if you’re driving infrequently or aren’t traveling into dense areas like Boca Raton or Palm Springs with regularity, your Nissan cabin air filter should last for 10,000 mile intervals.
