California Fires -- The Effects of Ash and Smoke on Your Cabin Air Filter

California is currently experiencing a record number of wildfires that are wreaking havoc throughout the state. The team at Yorba Linda Auto Service would first like to thank the firefighters working so diligently to keep our communities safe. Next, we hope each one of our customers is safe and well during these troubling times. The effects of the smoke and ash in the air can affect our health. Not only can smoke and ash potentially compromise your health, but it can also negatively impact your vehicle’s performance, precisely the condition of your cabin air filter. 

As you drive, individual particles and contaminants try to enter your vehicle through the heating, air-conditioning, and ventilation systems. Your cabin air filter is responsible for making sure the dirt, dust, smoke, smog, pollen, and mold spores don’t enter your cabin. If your cabin air filter is dirty, these contaminants have a far greater risk of entering your vehicle. A clean cabin air filter can trap these particles, but a dirty cabin air filter might not. 

The air is filled with smoke and ash, and your cabin air filter has to work overtime to prevent the particles from entering your car through the ventilation systems. If these particles are entering your vehicle, your health might be compromised. When you bring your vehicle to Yorba Linda Auto Service for an inspection, we will carefully examine your cabin air filter. We will identify any issues and develop a solution tailored to you and your vehicle. 

We don’t want the health of your vehicle compromised by the smoke and ash. To ensure your cabin is performing in tip-top shape, we encourage you to bring your vehicle to our facility for an inspection and cabin air filter replacement, if needed. Schedule an appointment for service at Yorba Linda Auto Service or call us if you have questions about your cabin air filter.
