Cabin Air Filters

The cabin air filter is responsible for cleaning outside air entering the vehicle. Because up to 100,000 litres of air can be blown into the vehicle’s interior in less than an hour, it can easily become clogged with debris. Unfortunately, a blocked cabin filter will not be effective, resulting in a below-par heating and cooling system, and causing the air inside the vehicle to become more polluted than the air outside up to six times more. Similarly, bacteria and fungi can accumulate in the filter, leading to unpleasant smells in the cabin. Fitting a high-performance cabin filter, such as Delphi, is essential in eliminating these harmful pollutants and odours, safeguarding both you and the air conditioning (A/C) system.  

High-performance media

All our cabin air filters use a high-performance, non-woven fabric to eliminate dust, pollen, bacteria and exhaust particles, amongst others. The specially designed filter fabric contains up to five individual layers, removing near 100 percent of harmful pollutants.

Enhanced protection 

Over time moisture can build up in the filter and become a feeding ground for bacteria and mould. This can then  spread into the lines of the HVAC system, where it emits unpleasant odours. For the ultimate protection from this and other pollutants, we also offer a range of carbon activated filters. Our carbon activated filters feature the same high quality, non-woven fabric as our particle filters, with the addition of a layer of activated carbon. Sandwiched between two layers of fleece, this highly effective technology removes more pollutants than standard filters, and expels nasty gases and smells too.

Resource Highlights

Spring is finally here, which means it is time to start fresh after the harsh winter weather. While it is always nice to deep clean the house or scrub the office desk clean, what about other places we spend our time? A survey from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has found that American drivers spend more than 17,600 minutes behind the wheel in one year. That's over 12 days inside of your vehicle! Of course getting an oil change and a wash are obvious, but what about a nice deep clean for the engine?

Here is the first of four auto part cleaning tips that can help give your vehicle a fresh start for the new season, and improve your vehicle's performance, economy, and longevity.

Keep your HVAC system clean

Replacing your air filter is a part of common vehicle upkeep, but what about your vehicle's air cabin filter? The air cabin filter, often forgotten as it is typically located behind the glove box, prevents pollutants such as pollen, dirt, dust, smog and mold from entering the vehicle's HVAC and air conditioning system.;

Symptoms of a failing air cabin filter are:

  • Reduced air conditioning, heating and air circulation performance
  • The HVAC system pushing out more noise than air
  • Persistent, unusual odor coming from the interior vents

The cabin air filter is important to not only a vehicle’s HVAC and AC system health but for the driver’s health as well. You’ll be grateful those spring time allergens are staying outside of your vehicle and not coming in the cabin!

How to replace the air cabin filter

When to replace the A/C compressor

If your vehicle’s air conditioning is not performing well due to a compressor that leaks refrigerant, doesn’t properly move refrigerant or is audibly noisy, or stopped working altogether, consider replacing the entire compressor with Delphi OE quality AC compressor.

The Delphi Difference

Our AC compressors are lightweight and highly efficient by consuming up to 15% less power which provides fuel savings up to .5 MPG. They are also leak tested to one pound of refrigerant in 40 years to ensure cool air throughout the life of the part.

Check out our catalog to see if we offer an AC compressor for your vehicle and stay turned next week for another Delphi spring cleaning tip.
