Shopee Picks: Breath easy with Sakura Cabin Filters

With the holiday season fast approaching and lockdown restrictions slowly being lifted, a lot of people (including us) are excited about going on a road trip once again.

After being stuck inside our homes for almost two years, (except for the occasional grocery and errand runs), it’s nice to finally have something to look forward to–the long drive on the open road with no traffic, the smell of fresh air, and just relish in the change of scenery.

But before you fill up your gas tank and head out of the city, be a responsible motorist and follow the BLOWBAGETS rule. That is to check your battery, lights, oil, water, brake, air, gas, engine, tire, and self. It’s a serious reminder about checking your car to prevent an accident or breakdown.

One thing we might forget to check, however, is the condition of our cabin air filter.

If this is the first time you’ve heard about it, don’t worry, you are not alone.

What’s a cabin air filter?

You are probably aware that your car’s engine has an air filter, but did you know that your car’s HVAC (heating ventilation and air conditioning) system may also have one? This is commonly called a cabin air filter, it performs the same duties for your HVAC system as the engine air filter does for your car’s engine.

The cabin air filter is a small pleated filter made of multi-fiber paper cotton or some other engineered material. Before entering the passenger compartment, outside air is directed through this filter to trap the contaminants inside the filter and prevent them from entering the inside of your vehicle.

While your vehicle’s engine air filter ensures that clean air reaches the engine, your car’s ventilation system counts on the cabin air filter to keep a steady stream of clean air flowing. The cabin air filter keeps dust, dirt, pollen, bacteria, and exhaust gases from entering the HVAC system of your car. It also prevents bugs, leaves, and other debris from clogging up the system. Vital to clean air inside the car, the cabin air filter keeps the air inside the car fresh so you and your passengers can breathe easy.

Unfortunately for us, there is no warning light to indicate that your cabin air filter needs changing, but there are signs when you have to change your cabin filter.

First is you may hear an unusual whistling sound coming from the cabin air intake duct, another recommendation is to change your cabin air filter annually or every 20,000kms. Also if you often drive in heavily polluted areas or travel on dirt roads, you should change the cabin air filter every 8000kms. And if you have allergies it’s best to have your filter regularly checked to ensure air quality and to reduce their allergy symptoms.
