Why should you clean your Car's AC or Cabin Filter regularly?

In recent times there has been considerable thought given by families on the subject of clean air, air pollution and SPM metrics in Delhi & NCR.

In recent times there has been considerable thought given by families on the subject of clean air, air pollution and SPM metrics in Delhi & NCR.

We all saw a surge in sales of Domestic Air Purifiers, word of mouth, panic buying at times and this topic occupied our mind space especially during the foggy winter months. As the summers set in, the the heat drove the fog away and along went the topic of air pollution.

The cycle would repeat and then the topic would re-emerge, there will be focused marketing efforts by air purifier brands and some would event try and sell us 12V Car Air Purifier. We pay heed to such discussions, unfortunately there are times we forget to clean or replace the humble AC or Cabin Filter provided by the car manufacturers in the car itself.

It's time we pay attention to this important part of the car, because while we are at the wheels and the air con is running, we are protected by this filter which controls the quality of air we breathe.

I would recommend a monthly cleaning of the filter and a 3 month replacement specially in the dusty conditions of Delhi NCR. In most cars the Cabin or AC filter is placed under the glove compartment of the car and can be removed easily. If you do not believe in DIY tasks, do get it done at any of the car service stations near you.

Here are the benefits of regularly cleaning or replacing the AC/Cabin filter of your car:

1. Blocked AC or Cabin filters, slow down the air flow via the air vents - they impact the effectiveness of the air conditioning

2. Reduce Bad Odour in the car cabin, in fact - you can perfume the AC or Cabin air filter and keep your car smelling fresh for a really long time. This is especially recommended for people who smoke in their cars.

3. AC Filters catch Dust Particles and other SPM - this maintains good quality air inside your car.

A timely cleaning or replacement of AC/Cabin Filter goes a long way in maintaining good quality air inside the cabin of the car, thus keeping our loved ones healthy.
