The Effects of Ash on Your Cabin Air Filter

Wildfires have been ravaging California, and the effects of the fires are staggering. First, the Auto Experts team would like to thank all the firefighters working so hard to keep our state and communities safe and secure. We are fortunate to have you. Not only are these fires affecting California’s inhabitants, but they are also involving our vehicles, as the smoke and ash is beginning to seep into your cabin air filters.

Your cabin air filter is directly responsible for the air quality in your cabin, as it cleans the air that goes into your vehicle. This filter is placed in your vehicle’s ventilation system and will prevent dirt, dust, smoke, smog, pollen, and mold spores from entering your cabin. If your cabin air filter is dirty, your car’s ventilation, heating, and air-conditioning system will be compromised. When air passes through the filter, the filter traps these contaminants. Over time, debris will begin to accumulate in your air filter. To reduce the risk of these particles entering the vehicle, your cabin air filter will need to be changed.

With all the smoke and ash in the air, your cabin air filter will most likely work extra hard to prevent the contaminants from entering your vehicle. When you bring your vehicle to The Auto Experts in Sacramento, our technicians will perform a thorough inspection. We recognize the importance of breathing clean air, which is why our technicians will pay close attention to your cabin air filter condition. The influx of smoke and ash in the atmosphere might be causing your cabin air filter to work extra hard.

To ensure your cabin air filter is performing correctly, we encourage you to stop by The Auto Experts for an inspection. Schedule an appointment with The Auto Experts today and make sure to use one of our specials. Proudly serving downtown Sacramento, Midtown, and East Sacramento, you can find us at 505 30th Street Sacramento, CA 95816. See you soon!
