WHY DALES AUTO SHOULD CHECK YOUR CABIN AIR FILTER?
FOR YOUR HEALTH, THAT’S WHY. This is a fairly self explanatory issue but some of our customers do not know they have a cabin air filter in their vehicle. Almost 95% of new vehicles are fitted with a cabin air filter, even if your vehicle doesn’t have air-conditioning. The auto industry estimates that the total market for cabin air filter replacement is around 40 million units per year.
The increase in traffic levels on our roads worldwide has an inevitable impact on air pollution; and these roadside pollutants can reach you and your passengers through the ventilation or air conditioning ducts inside your vehicle. Extended exposure to high pollution while driving is not only unpleasant, more importantly it can even have a serious effect on your health. Micro-organisms can accumulate inside the car cabin, potentially multiplying to concentrations of between 5 to 8 times higher than normal. Such a high level of bacteria inside the vehicle can lead to a range of health problems.
