Why Is Cabin Air Filtration Important?

Cabin Air Filtration

Cabin air filters serve a vital role in improving the Vehicle Interior Air Quality (VIAQ) and protecting the health and safety of vehicle passengers and drivers. Cabin air filtration is crucial in all types of vehicles, not only passenger cars but also utility and commercial vehicles.

Importance of Cabin Air FiltrationWhy Is Cabin Air Filtration Important?

Research shows that millions of people die prematurely due to illnesses attributed to indoor air pollution. Indoor air pollution occurs not only in commercial and residential buildings—where we live, play, and work—but also in the interior of vehicles: cars, buses, trucks, and other utility vehicles.

The air inside vehicles can be more than a dozen times worse than just a few meters away on the outside. Even if we spend about 1-2 hours of our day driving, we will get up to half of our daily exposure to vehicle-related pollutants during that time.

At first, indoor air pollution will cause only discomfort. However, some pollutants can cause serious cardiovascular and respiratory diseases that will appear only after a period of time. Approximately, between 5%-10% of individuals globally have asthma or suffer from some type of allergy due to airborne particulates.

Benefits of Cabin Air Filtration

Airborne contaminants in vehicles can be particles, like pollen, soot and dust, but also gasses and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like e.g. Sulfur dioxide, n-Butane, Toluene, Ammonia, Nitrogen Oxide, and Aldehydes, as well as bacteria and viruses. These contaminants may originate from both the inside and outside the vehicle.

One key way to improve your Vehicle Interior Air Quality (VIAQ) and protect your health against dangerous air contamination is the use of H&V’s CabinPro™ filter media solutions in your cabin air filters.
