I'm sure that have you heard many times that there are two types of filters, the air and pollen filter, and maybe you're wondering if one of them is redundant. That's because we're accustomed to believe that the air filter helps clean the air that we have within the car and that's entirely wrong, since only the air filter purifies the air directed into the engine combustion and has nothing to do with the car's interior.
Probably because of its name -pollen filter-, we would come to believe that is something that should only be checked if you live close to nature, if it passes near the flowers and before all, only in the spring and not at any other season of the year, but that's not true and now I will explain you every single detail on this important part of your vehicle.
The pollen filter function
The pollen filter is responsible of cleaning the air that enters the cockpit and passengers side and although its name, it refers precisely to pollen, purifying the air and removing dust at the same time. His name has been raised for you to understand that it is much more desirable and safe for your lungs, because the pollen is much smaller than the dust and still can stop it.
Have you ever seen a tiny layer of dust on the board? If it happened to you certainly means that your pollen filter is full and it can not make those spots do not reach the cabin. In this case, it is logical that this really affects your health because you are breathing oxygen that is not pure and if this is not enough, there is more: this is a point that directly affects your wallet.
It turns out that if your pollen filter is clogged, when turning on the air conditioning will take longer than usual to cool the interior of the vehicle, because the filter can not get air to move properly, therefore this will consume more fuel to operate the air compressor, which definitely is not amused to any driver, so do not ever forget to check if your pollen screen is correct or needs to be changed.
There is no default for that kilometers, depending on the places you drive, if they have dust or not, so check it periodically, it's really important!
