How frequently replace the cabin air filter
Cabin filter is responsible for retaining the entry of particles of dust, soot, pollen, harmful gases and bacteria inside the car. With the use of air conditioning, the cabin filter has become saturated with these particles and microorganisms.
It is recommended that the consumer is attentive to the maintenance of the vehicle cabin filter in this period of the year, of hotter days. As the use of air conditioning becomes more frequent, the air passage through the cabin filter increases.
In this way, it is necessary to perform maintenance to improve its performance, since the saturated cabin filter can obstruct the flow of air passage into the vehicle and cause the blurring of the internal glasses.
According to André Gonçalves, technical consultant at Mann-Filter, the recommendation for the filter Exchange is, at most, once a year or every 15.000 kilometers.
Moreover, maintenance helps in preventing respiratory diseases and bad odor caused by the proliferation of bacteria and fungi. What few people know is that the cabin filter exists even in the cars with no air conditioning. They should also be switched on vehicles using only the ventilation system.
