Americans spend more than 3.7 billion hours in traffic each year, a key factor in the automotive industry's decision to increase the number of vehicles equipped with cabin air filtration systems. Use the following FAQs to help learn more about our cabin air filtration line.
What is a cabin air filter?
Cabin air filters are designed to capture airborne contaminants such as soot, dirt, pollen, and other pollutants, that enter a vehicle cabin through its heating, air conditioning and defrosting (HVAC) system. Cabin air filters also prevent leaves, dirt, bugs and other debris from entering the HVAC system and negatively impacting the operation of the heater, air conditioner and defroster.
Are consumers concerned about the air quality in their vehicle cabins?
According to a survey conducted by The Dohring Co., one of North America's largest providers of market research to the retail automotive community, 85 percent of respondents are concerned about the health effects of exhaust gases and vapors while driving; and almost half of the respondents are concerned about pollens, allergens, germs, dust particles, odors and smog. Ninety five percent of respondents are concerned about air pollutants within their vehicle.
Car-care experts and filter manufacturers recommend changing them every 12,000 to 15,000 miles — at least once a year, but twice a year is necessary for maximum benefit.
