Spring means sunny days, warmer weather, and of course, road trip season! Most people are gearing up for spring cleaning at home, but your vehicle can also benefit from some spring cleaning. I'm not just talking about washing away that winter grime. Your vehicle has air filters that help keep contaminates from entering the cabin. These filters become less efficient as time goes on. These filters actually trap and store dust, pollen, and other allergens. The filters should be inspected regularly, and replaced as needed. Your vehicle's manufacturer will list service intervals for these filters, but we live in a dusty area and your filters may need to be replaced sooner. As you will see in the pictures below, there are other reasons for the filters becoming contaminated. In Central Oregon, we have a high rodent population. On cool nights, your vehicle's warm engine provides an inviting place for them to seek shelter. We have seen rodent nests in all kinds of places in vehicles. We often see vehicles come in with a smell from the heater vents. On many occassions, we find that the air filters are clogged with nesting materials. Poor air flow is also a sign of clogged filters. Give us a call today to be sure you're breathing clean air this spring!
