Change Your Car’s Cabin Filter

Did you know that most cars made after 2000 have a cabin air filter? (CAF) A lot of people don’t, but not changing yours regularly can result in health problems for you and your passengers, and extra wear and maintenance for your car’s HVAC system.  For the majority of cars built after 2000, CAFs are either standard equipment, or are included as an option. If you’re not sure if your car has a CAF, consult your owner’s manual. Many CAFs are located either beneath the hood or under the dashboard, often behind the glove compartment. Changing your car’s CAF is usually a simple and easy proposition often taking less than 10 minutes to undertake. Most can be changed with simple hand tools, or simply by hand.

The importance of keeping a clean CAF in your car can’t be overstated. When the CAF becomes clogged and dirty, those inside the car start to breathe the outside air which is often polluted with contaminants and noxious gases. Also, your car’s HVAC will start to be taxed and have to work harder than it has to if the CAF isn’t changed regularly. Recommendations call for the CAF to be changed every year or 10,000 to 15,000 miles.

Most CAFs are composed of three layer of filter media: two outer layers that capture larger particles  such as pollen, dust, mold spores, soot, and smog, and an inner layer made of activated charcoal or electrostatically charged to remove gases and odors from the air entering your car’s interior. Filters Fast offers a wide selection of CAFs for many different makes and models of cars. To see if we carry your car’s CAF, simply go to www.filtersfast.com and type your car’s make and model into our search bar. Changing your CAF regularly can save your health, and extend your car’s life.

November is Flu Awareness Month

November is National Flu Awareness Month. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, (CDC) each year at least 200,000 people are hospitalized for complications due to the flu, and 36,000 people die from the flu each year.  Also, anywhere from 10 to 20% of the US population is infected with the flu virus each year. As the cold and flu season gears up again this year, it is important to protect yourself and your family from the flu. Here are some tips that can help you avoid catching the flu:

  • Avoid contact with those infected with the flu

The flu is a virus, and as such it is spread from one person to another. Sneezing, coughing, and shaking hands are all ways that the flu can be transmitted. By limiting exposure to people who have been infected with the flu, you reduce your chances of catching the flu.

  • Wash your hands thoroughly

Keeping your hands clean will limit your exposure to the flu virus.

  • Get a flu shot

The CDC recommends all persons over the age of 6 months should be vaccinated against the flu annually. This is perhaps your best defense against the flu.

Filters Fast offers many products that can help you through cold and flu season, including the Crane EE-8064 Digital Germ Defense Humidifier,  the Honeywell UV Surface Treatment System UV100A1059, the Filtrete Ultra Allergen Air Filter, the Filtrete Advanced Allergen Air Filters, the Honeywell UV Air Treatment System UV100E1043, and our line of Crane Cool Mist and Warm Mist Humidifiers.

Protecting yourself and your family against the flu keeps everyone healthy and happy. Join us in raising the awareness of the dangers of the flu, and how to prevent it.
