Spring has sprung and all the pollens and allergens associated with it!! With all the recirculated air in your vehicle, your car’s cabin air filter and engine air filter should be inspected to ensure they are providing clean air to you and your car.
The cabin air filter cleans the air coming into the passenger compartment. The cabin air filter typically traps pollen, bacteria, dust and exhaust gases that may find their way into a vehicle’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system, compromising interior air quality and damaging the system. The cabin air filter also prevents leaves, bugs and other debris from entering the HVAC system, which could also cause problems. Heavy airborne contaminants, such as pollen can pollute cabin air filters quickly compromising the integrity of the air in the passenger compartment.
The engine air filter traps dirt particles, pollen and other debris which can cause costly engine damage. They also play a critical role in keeping pollen and debris from contaminating the airflow sensor on fuel-injected cars. With all the particulate matter in the air, your engine air filter become clogged, which may restrict air flow so the engine cannot do its job.
Your radiator uses air flow to release heat from the coolant to regulate engine temperature. If you have pets in the garage animal hair can accumulate at the front of the radiator and clog the air passages. Pet hair can also accumulate in your cabin air filter and engine air filter as well.
You can bring your vehicle by our shop for a complimentary cabin and engine air filter inspection to make sure you and your vehicle are breathing safe air.
