Were you aware that the air inside your car contains over 10 times more pollutants than the air outside, without an effective cabin air filter installed? (Environmental Health Perspectives Journal)
These pollutants can cause fatigue, nausea, headaches and trigger more significant health issues for people with asthma or respiratory issues.
"Cabin air filters are designed to filter out contaminants while absorbing noxious odours and harmful gases like exhaust and ozone," explained Ryco Filters General Manager of Sales & Marketing, Ross Lamb.
Some families might feel like "mum and dad's taxi service" is always working and a recent study into driving habits confirmed that parents with children aged 6-15 drive approximately 10% more than drivers without kids.
You risk more health complications the longer you spend in a vehicle with a cabin air filter that needs replacing. Highton Automotive Services recommends replacing your cabin air filter every 12 months or 15,000km.
