Roadside pollutants can reach a car’s driver and passengers through its ventilation or air conditioning ducts and prolonged exposure to can have a serious effect on the health of the vehicle’s occupants.
Microorganisms accumulate inside the car, potentially multiplying to much higher concentrations than normal.
High levels of bacteria inside the vehicle can lead to a range of health problems, including asthma and allergic reactions.
HELLA Hengst say it’s important for workshops to communicate the health benefits of regular cabin filter replacement to their customers as failure to change the filter regularly can cause clogging, preventing bacteria and pollutants from being filtered effectively.
A clogged cabin filter also impacts the flow of fresh air, causing difficulty with de-icing, misting up of windows, and increasing the threat of driver and passenger fatigue.
HELLA Hengst supplies original equipment quality filters made to the high specifications and requirements of vehicle manufacturers and their extensive cabin portfolio includes particle filters that absorb pollen, dust and soot, as well as activated carbon filters that also keep unpleasant odours at bay.
Replace filters regularly
HELLA Hengst recommends replacing the filter twice a year if the vehicle is used a considerable amount – once in the spring as a great deal of impurities have accumulated over the winter, and another in the autumn to remove pollen and dead leaves.
