Air conditioners have become popular in all types of vehicles. Now they are installed not only in light vehicles, but also in buses. You can choose the right air conditioner from a large number of options
They use both mechanical and electrical types of drives. It is important to replace the air conditioner filter in time to avoid health problems. Contaminated filters pose a hazard to both the driver of the vehicle and its passengers.
What diseases can cause dirty filters?
Most often, the respiratory system suffers from all kinds of bacteria accumulated on wet radiator grilles. Microbes can easily provoke respiratory illness in anyone who breathes in the air they contaminate.
When deciding to leave a dirty filter, the car owner should remember that mold, which is sure to appear on it, can lead to pneumonia, which will be caused by the aspergillus fungus. This is a very dangerous disease.
The modern popular filters are:
- foam filters; - HEPA filters; - charcoal filters.
Foam-based devices clean the air well from suspended particles. They are easy to clean and wash. The driver is able to perform these procedures independently and regularly. They just take off and just just return to the place. They are covered by a decorative grille provided in the design of the air conditioner.
Filters with a more complex design have a porous base of glass fiber filaments. They protect the interior, and at the same time the lungs of people moving in it, not only from suspended particles, but also from bacteria that always tend to penetrate into them and threaten their health. These filters cannot be washed. They are either changed to new ones, or periodically vacuumed with a car vacuum cleaner.
Charcoal-based filters are considered the best solution. They will relieve the vehicle of burning generated during movement and keep the air in the passenger compartment clean. They are changed once a year, if the terrain through which the driver has to move does not have abnormal pollution in the form of forest fires or sand clogging up all the cracks. Otherwise, you will have to change the wood filters much more often, since they cannot be washed.
Additional difficulties associated with air pollution in the car
The evaporator can add them to the driver. It will become an excellent breeding ground for germs if you do not take care of cleaning it in time. For this, a neutral soap solution or ultrasonic cleaning of the grates is used when wet cleaning is not possible.
Someone will notice that this method of cleaning costs money, but you have to choose between the health of passengers and these costs. It should be remembered that timely replacement of filters means fresh air in the vehicle for its passengers.
