Don't forget to Breathe!

Don't forget to Breathe!

Does the thought of spring fill you with dread? Do you feel that coughing, sneezing, and itchy eyes go along with spring-time? We can help you keep those spring elements out of your vehicle. Most modern cars have a cabin air filter that filters out pollen and other contaminants that can come through the ventilation system into your cars interior. Not to be confused with the engine air filter, a component that keeps pollutants out of your engine, the cabin air filter will keep your car's passenger compartment clean from pollen, dust, and pollutants... so you can breathe easy on those gorgeous spring days! If you are curious if your car has a cabin air filter, or if it needs to be replaced, let Street Tech Auto Care help! We can tell you if your car is equipped a cabin air filter, show you where it is, and even show you what it looks like, so you can see for yourself how much it filters out. Of course, if it does need replacement, we will be happy to do that too
