How to Buy a Good Quality Cabin Air Filter

Good Quality Cabin Air Filter

Air filters in your vehicle prevent dust, pollen, pollution, and other particulates from entering areas they shouldn’t, such as the engine, the fuel system, and the passenger cabin. Shopping for air filters is pretty straightforward however, there are a few things you should consider:

  • Decide between types: Activated charcoal filters are more effective at removing harmful vapors and other gasses that you encounter with heavy city driving. Particulate filters, on the other hand, are better for dirt, pollen, dust, and other matter you may encounter in a suburban or rural setting.

  • Choose your material: Paper filters are inexpensive, but need to be changed more often. Some filters feature a cotton/paper blend, and yet others are washable and can be reused virtually forever. These are pricier but save you money in the long run.

  • Quality Brand: Go with a trusted brand like Fram vs WIX. OEM is acceptable as well but with a part that gets changed fairly frequently, it’s not necessary to spend a bundle.
