Driving With a Good Breather

By: Anthony Fontanelle

The atmosphere is home to numerous elements that cannot seen by the naked eye. Some of these elements do have effects to our bodies and may even cause certain allergies. An example is the medical condition called allergic rhinitis, which is a mixture of the symptoms present in runny nose, nasal congestion, and sneezing. This is caused by airborne particles like dust, dander, and pollens, and although one could assume that being inside his home or car perfectly avoids such condition, he is mistaken. Airborne particles can still enter the home or penetrate the car's ventilation system. To ensure that Honda owners and passengers breathe only dust-free air, a Honda cabin filter is installed.

Honda cabin filters are designed to screen the air entering the vehicle. It blocks the dust, pollens, and other possible irritants to the respiratory track or even to the skin. European-made vehicles were the first to install cabin filters. Now, this straining component is also being widely used already in Asian models. We may not notice all the bacteria and unknown elements coming inside the car cabin, but through the use of the we can avoid breathing these elements in.

Commonly, the cabin air filter is a pleated-paper filter found in the outside-air intake of the passenger compartment. Some cabin filters are shaped like the engine air filter while others are made to fit in a specific car's outside-air intake. Since it is used to trap harmful particles, the Honda cabin filter requires regular maintenance. A replacement is recommended after every 15,000 miles or at the rate dictated in your car's manual. Another way of determining whether the filter needs replacement is observing the quality of air in the car's interior. The filter is prone to get clogged with all the elements it screens. If this happens, airflow from the cabin vents can lessen and may let allergens enter the cabin air stream.
