Air Quality Alert: The Situation in the Northern U.S.

A recent report from the National Weather Service raises concerns about the air quality in the northern U.S. near the Great Lakes, due to an impending low-pressure system. This forecasted system is expected to pull in wildfire smoke from south-central Canada, adversely affecting air quality in these regions.

Health officials have taken immediate action. An air quality alert has been issued by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency effective until midnight, and Wisconsin's air quality advisory will last until tomorrow at noon. With a dip in outdoor air quality predicted, it becomes even more crucial to maintain the air quality inside your vehicle.

Air Filters in Your Vehicle: What They Do and Why They Matter

Air filters might not be the stars of your vehicle's components, but they perform a crucial role. Serving as the 'lungs' of your vehicle, they come in two main types: engine air filters and cabin air filters.

Engine Air Filters: Defenders of Your Engine

Engine air filters have the important task of keeping your engine safe from harmful debris. When your engine draws in air to mix with fuel, it's crucial that this air is clean. Impurities such as dust or other particles could cause severe damage to your engine, leading to decreased performance and possibly high-cost repairs.

Cabin Air Filters: Your Personal In-Car Air Purifier

Cabin air filters tirelessly maintain a clean environment inside your car by filtering out pollutants such as dust, pollen, and smog. If you've ever had to endure discomfort while driving because of a stuffy nose or itchy eyes, a blocked cabin air filter might be the cause. Regular replacement of this filter can significantly enhance your driving experience.

Air filters may not be the most glamorous part of your vehicle, but they're essential for your car's health and your own. Regular maintenance of these filters can save you from future expensive repairs and contribute to a comfortable, pleasant drive. So, the next time you're in for an oil change or a tire pressure check, don't forget to pay some attention to your air filters too!
