You no longer have to endure "bad air" in your vehicle: Air conditioning, which is standard in most modern vehicles, allows individuals to adjust temperatures to their own needs; the integrated interior cabin air filters keep undesirable air components such as pollen, dust, bacteria and allergens at bay. The prerequisite for this: The interior cabin air filter should be replaced regularly, every 15,000 kilometers at least or, ideally, twice a year.
The rule of thumb is: A filter change in the spring to remove the last remnants of winter, the second change in the fall after the filter has absorbed large amounts of pollen during the warm months of summer. Whoever follows this rule can always expect healthy air conditions in his automobile. It is not only allergy sufferers who can literally breathe more easily: Everyone in the vehicle, even those without hay fever symptoms, benefits from air with minimal levels of dust and pollen. Pollution in the air that is breathed can ultimately impair concentration and make the driver feel tired. Therefore, having a pleasant climate in your automobile not only adds to comfort levels, but also improves safety.
As a partner and series supplier, Hengst produces interior cabin air filters in original equipment manufacturer quality that meet the specifications and requirements of the automobile manufacturers. High-quality, fully-synthetic filter materials and excellent processing quality ensure effective functionality. Particle filters that absorb pollen, spores and dust as well as bacteria, fungi and debris from the road are part of this comprehensive package, as are carbon filters that also block out unpleasant smells and contaminants. Both types of filters have proven capable of achieving separation rates of over 95 percent. Another advantage: Clean air conditions and good air conditioning prevent condensation and oily lubricating film from forming on the vehicle's windows.
So that external vehicle experts are also able to install the filters, Hengst provides easy to understand installation instructions for all filter types in its online catalog at www.hengst-katalog.de, - as well as in every product package. "Nasty passengers" don't have a chance anymore.
Opportunities for auto repair shops
Auto repair shops can use this opportunity to make additional attractive revenues by suggesting this service to customers during regular service appointments. In any case, auto manufacturers stipulate that the filter should be replaced after 15,000 kilometers, or after one year at the latest. However, it makes sense to change the filter twice a year if you use your vehicle a lot: In the spring because a lot of pollutants will have accumulated over the winter months, and also in the fall to remove pollen and leaf residues.
It is thus easy to calculate the potential that repair shops can tap into, in addition to their existing service contracts.
