If your car heater isn’t working well and you smell something funny, you might need a new air cabin filter.
You’ve been smelling something off the past few weeks in your car. Then, when you were returning from Peril at the North Pole in Prairie Pines, you noticed that your car heater didn’t seem to be working as well as it once did. You’re not sure if the two are connected and you’re not sure if it’s worth getting checked out.
The answer to both questions is yes. Yes, the odd smell and heater problems might be connected and, yes, you should get them checked out. It could be a matter of your health.
The loss of HVAC efficiency and the smell are both indications that your air cabin filter needs to be replaced.
Car and Driver explains: “Failing to replace a dirty, clogged filter will impact the efficiency of the heating and cooling system in your car. Poor efficiency can lead to other problems, including a loss of air volume, bad odors in the cabin, or premature failure of HVAC components. Simply replacing a dirty filter can make a big difference in the car’s air quality.”
As for your health, Car and Driver notes, “if you suffer from allergies, asthma, or other health conditions that impact your respiratory health, the cleanliness of the air you breathe is especially important. … The best way to make sure the air is clean is to change the cabin air filter as frequently as the auto manufacturer recommends.”
