When the Dallas-Fort Worth area Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning locations (Calverley Service Experts, Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Plano/DFW, and Levy and Son) decided they wanted to support the Walk MS events in North Dallas and Fort Worth, they wanted to offer a product to the event attendees.
“Service Experts thought an APCO Air Purifier was the perfect product to auction off since this spring Service Experts has been promoting saving the air, and it helps destroy germs and impurities from your home’s air that can exacerbate allergies and respiratory problems,” said Rob Haines, Marketing Manager for Service Experts.
Kim Speck got the Fresh-Aire UV APCO Air Purifier when she bid the highest at the Dallas Walk MS event. Kim first learned about the APCO several months before when she saw an article talking about the significance of indoor air quality.
“I didn’t pay much attention at the time because I didn’t understand its compatibility with nearly any heating and air conditioning system, and figured it was another one of those “luxuries” that was definitely not in my budget. When they were auctioning it off at Walk MS event, people were talking about the importance of good indoor air quality for people suffering from MS and I immediately thought of my father.”
Kim’s father was in his 90s and had been living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease for over two decades. For the past four years he had been on oxygen constantly, 24/7/365.
“The allergens in the air aggravated him even though I would install the more expensive 3M Filtrate brand of home air filters. They just weren’t helping. He repeatedly caught pneumonia despite the fact that he had only left the house over the past four years for doctor appointments.”
The pneumonia meant Kim’s father spent at least two months in the hospital and rehabilitation facility. Right before the Walk MS event in Dallas, Kim’s father had spent the majority of the month in the hospital and a couple days at the rehab facility recuperating from two strings of pneumonia. After seeing her father go through so much, Kim resolved she was ready to “roll the dice” and bid on the APCO, which would both help her dad get access to “clean” air, and also benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Kim was elated when she found out her bid had won and planned on getting the APCO installed in her father’s home before he was sent home from the rehab clinic. Unfortunately, only three days after the MS Walk, Kim’s father was brought home to hospice care and passed away peacefully four days later. The APCO arrived a week later.
Kim decided to have the APCO installed in her own house since her husband has problems with allergies. A short time after it was installed, she was cooking onions and noted she couldn’t smell any odors once she finished. She’s excited to see the long-term effects of the system.
We at Eveready Service Experts extend our condolences to Kim and her family.
