It's about more than just a fresher smell.
Pollution can enter your car or truck interior through the ventilation or air conditioning ducts. Extended exposure to high levels of air pollution in your vehicle is not only unpleasant, it can have a serious effect on the health of the occupants of your car.
Multiplication of bacteria inside your vehicle (which can often be 5 to 8 times higher than normal), leads to the following health complaints:
- Irritated mucous membrane
- Watery eyes
- Head aches
- Allergic reactions
A lack of fresh air flow can also lead to:
- Poor de-icing
- Fogging of windows
- Passengers feeling more fatigued
Regularly replacing your cabin air filter will make for a safer and healthier ride.
