The Cabin Air Filter could be effecting how the Air Conditioner unit in your vehicle is working. I had no idea, but it makes sense that if the filter is clogged the A/C unit can not cool as well as it should. The filtration system operates on the same principle as the A/C system in your house.

Cabin Air Filters began to appear on U.S. cars and trucks around 1995. Today more than 80 percent of all new import and domestic vehicles sold in the U.S. have a cabin air filter or a slot where one can be installed.
