Improve Your Commute with Cabin Air Filters

July 29, 2019

PurolatorBOSS Premium Cabin Air Filters with Febreze Freshness clean the air and provides a safer, cleaner ride.

Everywhere we go, we take extraordinary steps to be healthy. Our offices, airports and grocery stores are scattered with waterless soap and wet wipes; for years, we’ve stressed No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service from coast to coast. Public transportation accommodates responsible personal habits more than ever before.

So why don’t we take better care of ourselves in our vehicles? 

The average American spends over 300 hours per year in their vehicle, so why not take similar precautions? Cabin air filters are one of the primary (and simplest) ways to ensure clean air, clean breathing and an overall healthier lifestyle every time you set foot in your car.

PurolatorBoss Premium Cabin Air Filters with Febreze Freshness offer maximum air filtration for the greatest long-term health benefits and a more pleasurable driving experience.

Purolator invented the oil filter in 1923 and has been revolutionizing oil, air, cabin and fuel filters ever since. Trusted by DIYers and technicians alike, there’s no better way to protect the air you breathe—and the passengers you care about—than with a Purolator cabin air filter. 

You Should Care About Clean Air

“Cabin air filters were only introduced into the market in the early ’90s,” says Tina Davis, Senior Marketing Manager at MANN+HUMMEL, the company that produces the Purolator cabin air filter. 

“Now, we estimate over eighty percent of all cars off the manufacturing line feature a premium cabin air filter. The thing is, hardly anyone knows about it!”

Davis cites many common domestic and import vehicles as featuring cabin air filters as standard equipment. From high-end American-made trucks such as the Ford F150 and Chevy Silverado to common imports such as the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, cabin air filters are now one of the most common (and overlooked) features of a new vehicle. And as SUVS have come to dominate the North American market, cabin air filters are more common than ever before.

“Most people don’t know that cabin air filters need to be replaced about every twelve months,” Davis adds. “They’re no different than any other filter—they’ll get clogged, and now you’re breathing the dregs of what your vehicle has encountered.”

“The dregs” include anything and everything under the sun—dust, pollen, fine particulate matter that irritates the eyes, throat and lungs. Even the noxious fumes from people vaping on the sidewalk will waft their way into your vehicle when stopped nearby. 

When air travels into your vehicle’s ventilation system, it becomes super concentrated. Estimations put car pollution at 5–6 times more concentrated than what’s in the air. Purolator partners with Febreze, however, to help control and block odors as well as 99 percent of particulate matter. A third antimicrobacterial layer within the filter prevents dust and mold from infiltrating your breathing space, which is crucial to clean breathing as mold and mildew can thrive in HVAC systems. 

“The HVAC system is a moisture rich-environment where mold and mildew can thrive,” Davis says. 

“Our premium PurolatorBOSS Cabin Air Filter with Febreze Freshness controls all of these nasty contaminants, providing a healthier, more pleasant driving experience for you and your passengers.”

Besides letting in brake dust, soot and allergens from the road, poor air filtration can also lead to poor temperature control. In hot states, a clogged filter will impact your fan’s ability to produce cool air to keep you comfortable, and when the temperature plunges outside, your ability to draw in and heat fresh air will be greatly diminished. It’s important to replace your filters regularly if you want to stay comfortable.

A Quick Fix for a Safer, More Breathable Drive

When cabin filters were first introduced, some vehicle applications were hard to get to and difficult to replace. Fortunately that is no longer the case for most vehicles; most cabin air filters are located behind the glove box or under the hood near the windshield and are easy to change in about 15 minutes or less. It’s a simple replacement for the DIYer and even more so for trained technicians. 

You work hard to keep your car and your passengers happy, healthy and safe. Don’t let pollutants seep into your car, and look to PurolatorBOSS Premium Cabin Air Filters with Febreze Freshness for a breath of fresh air.
