Find out how a cabin air filter will make your journey a breeze
For regular drivers stuck in daily traffic jams or families heading off on a road trip, a cabin air filter in the car will improve their driving experience. High-quality MANN-FILTER cabin air filters provide nearly 100% protection from unwanted particles that can enter the car through the ventilation. This creates a pleasant driving experience and benefits all passengers. At the same time, cabin air filters prevent the harmful build-up of dirt in the A/C and heating systems, thus ensuring smooth operation and even preventing system failures.
What does a cabin air filter do?
The air that flows into your vehicle through the ventilation ducts while driving may contain up to five times more exhaust gases, dirt, dust and other pollutants than fresh air. The only barrier between these pollutants and the occupants of your vehicle is the cabin air filter, which is why it is important to replace it every year, every 12,000 miles or as recommended by the vehicle's manufacturer.
Vehicle cabin air filters remove up to 90% of even the tiniest harmful particulates (up to 1µm, in size) creating a barrier between passengers and the incoming air. A MANN-FILTER cabin air filter separates nearly all fine PM2.5 particulates (up to 95%) – the damaging micro-organisms contained in dust, dirt, pollen, exhaust fumes, smoke and other pollutants. Some of these are smaller than 3% of the diameter of a human hair. Which shows how powerful and effective a cabin air filter is.
