Replacing your engine air filter improves gas mileage and performance, while a clean cabin air filter improves air quality inside the vehicle.
The engine air filter is a paper element that reduces harmful dirt particles from entering the engine where they can do damage. The dirtier the air filter, the more the airflow to the engine is restricted. Reduced air flow leads to poor acceleration, reduced engine performance and reduced fuel economy (MPG).
If the engine air filter is excessively dirty or clogged, particles can get past the filter and into the combustion chamber which may cause severe damage or premature engine wear, and may further reduce fuel economy and engine performance.
The cabin air filter (also called the air conditioner filter) in your vehicle works much the same as the furnace filter in your home HVAC. It removes all kinds of pollen, dust, soot, moisture and odors that enter your vehicle's climate control system and cabin interior.
Cabin air filters are particularly beneficial for people with allergies since they do a very effective job of removing contaminants and allergens from the air. A clean cabin air filter will help you breathe easier.
