Air Filters & Ash -- How the California Wildfires Can Affect Your Vehicle

Wildfires are raging throughout California, and the team at Placentia Super Service is immensely grateful for the firefighters who are working so diligently to keep us safe. These wildfires are also affecting our health, as smoke and ash are beginning to clog the air. We might find our lungs having to work that much harder, staying inside to protect our health. Similar to how the smoke and ash is affecting us, the wildfires' effects are beginning to take their toll on our vehicles. 

Your cabin air filter is responsible for cleaning and filtering the air that comes into your cabin through the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems. When you don't change your air filter, your vehicle's HVAC system will be compromised. Your air filter stops contaminants, including dirt, dust, smoke, smog, pollen, and mold spores, from entering your cabin. When air passes through the filter, the filter traps the contaminants, stopping any debris from reaching your vehicle's interior. Over time, that debris will build-up in the filter, and to ensure the cabin air filter works efficiently, it will need to be changed. 

However, with all the smoke in the air, your cabin air filter has to work in overdrive and might need a replacement sooner rather than later. When you bring your vehicle to Placentia Super Service, our team will perform a thorough inspection, carefully examining your cabin air filter. Your cabin air filter helps you breathe clean air while driving, and our goal is to make sure your filter can properly perform its job.
