Ladies AUTO Know…How Clean is the Air You Breathe…In Your Car?

breath-clean-header       For most moms, a clean and dust-free environment is imperative – whether in our homes, at work…especially in our vehicles. If you or a member of your family suffers from asthma or any other respiratory problems, the cabin air filter is a maintenance “to do” that you do not want to fall behind on. Do you get headaches, have allergic reactions or breathing problems when riding in your car? If so, it’s probably time to replace the cabin air filter.

Breathe-fresh-air-in-your-carDid you know that a dirty or clogged cabin air filter can actually cause the air inside your car to be six times MORE polluted than the outside? YUCK is right! This necessary car part is designed to remove harmful particles from your vehicle (just to name a few: pollens, spores, exhaust fumes, bacteria, road dust, soot, smog, etc.) All of these are hazardous to a person’s health, especially when inhaled in large quantities. A cabin air filter should be changed every 12-15,000 miles, or per your owner’s manual. Not sure when you last changed yours? Not a problem! Stop in to Linear Automotive and we can check it for you, replace it if needed and get you back on the road in no time!

CABIN vs. AIR FILTER: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

       Some of us ladies who aren’t so car savvy may not know the difference between the two, or may only be familiar with a vehicle’s air filter. This is nothing to be embarrassed of, I assure you! Here is the low-down:

      The Engine Air Filter keeps the air going to your engine cleaner. It is to your car what our respiratory system is to us, in a way. Did you know that a clean air filter can improve your gas mileage up to 10%? With gas prices constantly on the rise, be sure to have yours replaced every time you have your oil changed.

      No matter where you are, on the congested city streets or dusty country roads, both kinds of air filters help you and your car function at its absolute best.
