Filter manufacturer backs Clean Air Day & offers firms free energy saving surveys

Tuesday 13th June, 2023

A LEADING UK air filter manufacturer is backing national Clean Air Day* this week (June 15, 2023) and is offering companies a free energy-saving survey to help them protect their staff and customers.

Somerset-based Jasun Envirocare, which has been in business for more than 50 years, is lending its support by raising awareness of the impact of poor air quality.

Colin Hitch, Managing Director at Jasun Envirocare in Bridgwater, explains: “Run by Global Action Plan, Clean Air Day is the UK’s largest campaign highlighting the need to tackle air pollution. This annual event offers a chance for us all to find out more about air pollution, share information, and make air cleaner and healthier for everyone. 

“Our work covers the improvement of internal air quality but we’re naturally very keen to see improvements in overall air quality and a reduction in pollution. The Clean Air Day website states how air pollution causes up to 36,000 deaths in the UK each year. It’s the largest environmental health risk we face today and is recognised as such by the World Health Organisation and the Government.

“Clean air benefits our physical health including protecting our brains and also benefits our mental wellbeing. For decades researchers have known asthma, heart disease and cancers and their connection to air pollution. However, recent research in London has also revealed how it can affect the brain and the mind too. 

“It’s been shown that those who breathe polluted air are more likely to develop mental health and brain conditions. Being exposed to air pollution is linked to depression, anxiety and dementia. When a person breathes polluted air, small particles can enter through their lungs, go into their bloodstream and reach the brain. 

“While our work involves internal air quality, there are huge links with Clean Air Day and what we do, and our mantra is: Clean Air Matters. Also, we’re a family run business and a large employer in this area, and at our other site in Waterlooville in Hampshire, as well as in Europe. We care about the planet, we care about our children and grandchildren, and we care about each other.

“As well as cleaning up the air outside, it’s also vital to protect our health by ensuring the air within buildings is as clean as possible too.

“Retailers, employers with office-based teams, those in hospitality and catering, anyone who has personnel working together inside, or welcomes customers into their building, all need to maintain good indoor air hygiene.

“Research has shown that poor quality air, in mechanically ventilated buildings, can negatively impact on health and wellbeing too. It can potentially cause tiredness, lethargy, headaches and skin and eye irritations. This can lead to increased sick days and poor staff productivity, which is not good for employees or employers. It’s very important to have effective, energy efficient air filters and filtration systems in place in all internal environments, and this is where we come in.

“We’re offering firms who use air filters a free energy saving survey to find out how they can save energy, which is good for the planet as well as their finances, while also ensuring they’re fully compliant legally with regards internal air quality requirements. And that their teams and customers or patients are kept safe from air pollution and other potentially harmful, airborne particles. If you’d like a free survey, please get in touch to find out more.”

As one of the UK’s largest air filter manufacturers, Jasun Envirocare provides a complete range of quality, standard and bespoke, air filters and systems, and all its products are made in Britain.

These include air purifiers, air filters, panel filters, washables, kitchen canopy grease filters, and HEPA filters.

As well as being specialists in the field of air hygiene, Jasun Envirocare is also an expert in water hygiene – providing a range of treatment solutions and services for commercial systems and is committed to continuous environmental improvement.

Jasun Envirocare’s products can be purchased direct from its online one-stop-shop: www.jfilters.com. It was the first air filters company worldwide to offer its full range of products online back in 1999.

The company, whose strapline is ‘a breath of fresh air, ‘employs more than 200 people at its UK operational sites in Bridgwater and Waterlooville and has factories and offices in Europe too.
