Many cars nowadays have a cabin filter
, which is built in the air conditioners. In the last decade many car air conditioning systems have been built with this type of air filters. The cabin air filter is placed outside the area of the engine. It helps in filtering the air which is entering into the air conditioning system. This helps in getting rid of a large amount of pollutants which can enter the cabin of the car. Thus it is useful for the people who are sitting in the vehicle as they are protected from the harmful elements. It has been seen in recent surveys that most of the vehicle owners do not know about this feature.
Many of them do not even know whether or not their vehicle has cabin air filter. These filters have been in use for the last twenty years. During the middle part of the 1980s they have been used in the European vehicles. From the beginning of last decade they appeared in the American market. Nowadays these filters are quite common in many countries around the world. It is important to know that these filters do not possess any kind of standard size, technology, materials or specifications. They also do not have any standardized terminology. The cabin filter offers you protection from:
- Road grime
- Polluted air
- Bacteria and virus
