Just because the windows are up in your car, does not mean you or your passengers are protected from air born contaminants. People with asthma, allergy and other respiratory problems are especially at risk when exposed to concentrations of pollutants. There is a simple way to protect your family.

People with asthma, allergy and other respiratory problems are especially at risk when concentrations of pollutants are elevated inside the vehicle.
Contaminants in the air such as pollen, fungus spores, dirt and dust pass unfiltered into the passenger cabin, along with the air intake and can trigger asthma, allergies, headaches, nausea, fatigue and giddiness.
There are a number of ways that you can protect the health of family and friends travelling with you.
The first is to ask your local Repco Authorised Service Centre to check your cabin air filter. There is a cabin air filter fitted to most vehicles built since the late 1990's. View our AutoFact video to learn more about how your cabin air filter works.
These filters are designed to reduce the amount of harmful contaminants entering into your vehicle via the heating ventilation and air conditioning system, whilst providing a much cleaner breathing environment for you and your passenger. It also helps keep the interior of your vehicle cleaner due to reduced dust entering the cabin, along with protecting vehicle occupants from harmful gases such as exhaust and ozone.
The second way to improve the quality of the air you breathe inside your vehicle is to ask your local Repco Authorised Service Centre about one of the effective treatments that can be applied directly to the vents of your air conditioning units to eliminate harmful bacteria and odours lurking in the system.
