3 Reasons Why You’d Want a New Air Filter for Your Car After Winter

We all have a long list of tasks to tackle when spring comes. The blinds need dusting, the drapes need washing, the baseboards need wiping, and the car needs to have a new air filter. Take out your notebook and pen, make a to-do list, and get to work!

Although the thought of adding preventive maintenance for your trusty steed to your to-do list may seem daunting, replacing your vehicle’s cabin air filter is a springtime necessity. Veteran Car Donations has pulled together the top reasons why you shouldn’t overlook this routine task this spring.

  1. You don’t want to deal with pollen.

Everything about spring is lovely — from the warmer temperatures to the sound of birds chirping outside. However, what we can do without is allergy-inducing pollen that invades the air. If you’re someone who suffers from allergies, you’d want to make sure that the air you’re breathing inside your car is pollen-free.

Since it’s impossible to get rid of all the pollen in the air, the only way to make this possible is to replace your cabin air filter with a new one. Under normal conditions, air filters need to be changed every 12,000 to 15,000 miles. However, you may want to change it again at the end of the pollen season if you don’t want allergens blowing through your vents because of a deteriorating air filter.

  1. You want clean air.

Your air conditioning system gets a ton of work during springtime because of the unpredictable weather that comes with the season. Unfortunately, this places more strain on your air filter.

If you fail to change your filter regularly, pollen isn’t the only thing you’ll have to worry about. A dirty air filter will also cause gunk to build up and blow dust into your main cabin. Unless you’re willing to run the risk of turning your recently detailed car into a dusty mess, you need to get yourself a new air filter.

  1. You don’t want an inefficient air conditioning system.

There’s nothing more frustrating than a clogged heater core or air conditioner. This will quickly turn any springtime road trip into a complete nightmare. If you’re looking to ensure your air conditioning system’s overall efficiency, don’t forget to change your air filter.


Start Spring on a Positive Note!

Replacing your air filter is an excellent way to start spring on a positive note — that is, if your vehicle is still in tip-top shape after the ravages of winter. In case you no longer feel safe driving your battered commuter car, send it to retirement by donating it to us at Veteran Car Donations.

We’ll give your old auto a new and worthy purpose — that of uplifting the lives of the suffering veterans and their families in your community.

We’ll auction off your donated vehicle and use the proceeds to support the life improvement programs of our veteran-focused charity partners. These IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations cater to veterans who are homeless, unable to get jobs, and suffering from disabilities and serious illnesses, including mental health issues.

They use the funding we give to provide their beneficiaries with free quality health care, financial aid, housing assistance, employment opportunities, family support, educational scholarships, psychotherapy services, and many other benefits.

As our donor, you’ll be entitled to claim the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season. We’ll send you the 100% tax-deductible sales receipt of your car within days after its sale.

You’ll also benefit from our free pickup and towing service, which we will provide you wherever your vehicle is parked or stored in any location in the country.

Aside from the material rewards in store for you as our donor, you’ll also be privileged to enjoy a most satisfying donating experience, knowing that your act of charity will help transform the lives of our nation’s heroes.

You can donate not just your old car but almost any other type of vehicle that you no longer need.
