Cabin Air Filter Replacements in Ottawa
The inside of your car should feel like a breath of fresh air, free from dirt, dust, dander, mold, and pollen. Your cabin air filter helps minimize the irritants your car is exposed to while in transit. That’s because air passes through the cabin filter before going through your ventilation system, trapping foreign and potentially harmful particles.

How can you tell if you need your cabin air filter replaced?
When considering regular vehicle maintenance, the cabin air filter can often be forgotten because drivers don’t frequently see it. But it is the primary filter between the air you breathe and outdoor dirt and dust. Maintaining a healthy environment in your car helps protect passengers against colds, the flu, and other viruses.
Cabin air filter replacements are important in protecting you, your passengers, and your vehicle’s interior from debris in the air. Many vehicles have a dashboard notification that will let drivers know when their air filter should be replaced. Even without the warning, there are tell-tale signs when it’s time to take your car to Jiffy Lube® Ottawa for a cabin air filter replacement:
- Your fans are making more noise than usual
- There is a strange, lingering smell
- Your air conditioning and heating are not as effective
- The fans are not outputting air with the same gusto as usual
- You want to maintain a healthy environment in your vehicle
Why is a dirty cabin air filter unpleasant and dangerous?
Want a clear car? Then don’t have a dirty cabin air filter. Why? Because when the filter is clogged and unable to catch dirt and debris, air pollutants will make their way into your car, settling on the surfaces. This can be inconvenient to clean and detrimental to human lungs.
A dirty cabin air filter can lead to reduced air circulation, too. That means your HVAC system must work harder to heat and cool the air, making it less effective. Reduced air circulation can also cause your car to stink, so if you can’t seem to find what’s causing the car to smell, it may be the cabin air filter.
How often should you change your cabin air filter?
How often you replace your cabin air filter depends on a few factors. Typically, Jiffy Lube® recommends getting your cabin air filter replaced every 25,000 to 40,000 km, but this recommendation can change based on road conditions.
If you drive on dirt roads frequently, dirt, leaves, and twigs are likely to get stuck in your cabin air filter. These larger items will block the cabin air filter and require it to be changed more frequently.
If you drive in a big city or a heavily polluted area, your air filter will need to be changed often due to the build-up of smog and air pollutants. The qualified technicians at Jiffy Lube® Ottawa are happy to look at your cabin air filter and let you know if your cabin air filter needs a replacement.
