The Importance of Clean Air Filters

by | Jul 21, 2021

Well folks, it looks like we’re into another wildfire summer with preparedness and respiratory health on the top of our lists. The haze of forest fire smoke is becoming a common sight on the horizon, but we wanted to take some time and tell you about the health benefits of clean cabin air in your vehicle. Whether you drive a truck, car, RV or SUV, it’s possible to keep the air inside your vehicle filtered for health. This is especially helpful for those of us with asthma or other respiratory issues, and young passengers who ride along with us in the car.

Take the Smoke Out of the Car with a Clean Filter

Although there are four filters in your vehicle, oil, fuel, air and cabin filters, let’s concentrate on your cabin filter, for healthy breathing while driving. Highly effective antibacterial cabin filters may neutralize 99% of germs, bacteria and mould spores, depending on the quality of filter you buy. If you or your passengers have asthmatic issues or other respiratory sensitivities, we recommend using a premium filter. Clean cabin filters screen out wildfire smoke, bad smells, noxious traffic fumes, and increase the efficiency of your air conditioner, which is a double perk in this heat wave. After we replace your dirty filter with a shiny clean one, we can show you just how dirty the old filter was. It’s not uncommon in these times when we have wildfire smoke in the air to change your cabin filter more often than usual.
