Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Auctions APCO for Good Cause

June 10, 2016

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) chose to host a booth at the Walk MS events in North Dallas and Fort Worth, they wanted to offer something to the event participants.

“We felt an APCO Air Purifier was a wonderful product to auction off since this spring we have been all about saving the air, and it helps eliminate germs and bacteria from your air that can aggravate allergies and respiratory ailments,” 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 discovered the APCO many months before when she read an article regarding the seriousness of indoor air quality.

“I didn’t pay much attention at the time because I didn’t comprehend its compatibility with nearly any HVAC system, and assumed it was another one of those “luxuries” that was definitely not in my budget. When it came up at the Walk MS event, everyone was talking about the significance of good indoor air quality for MS sufferers and I just thought of my father.”

Kim’s father was 91 years old and had been living with COPD for over two decades. He had been on oxygen at all times for the past four years.

“The allergens in the air irritated him even though I always installed the higher-priced 3M Filtrate brand of filters. They just didn’t help. He repeatedly caught pneumonia even though he had only left to go out over the past four years to visit his doctors.”

The pneumonia meant Kim’s father spent at least two months in the hospital and rehabilitation center. Right before the Walk MS event in North Dallas, Kim’s father had spent three weeks in the hospital and a few days at the rehab facility recovering from two strings of pneumonia. After watching her father endure so much, Kim said she was ready to “roll the dice” and bid on the APCO, which had two great benefits: her dad would finally come home to “clean” air and all the money went to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Kim was so excited when she found out she had bid the highest and planned on having the APCO installed in her father’s house before he was discharged from the rehab facility. Regrettably, just three days after the MS Walk, Kim’s father came home to hospice care and passed away peacefully just a few days later. The APCO arrived a week later.

Kim decided to have the APCO installed in her own home because her husband suffers from allergies. A short time after it was put in, she was cooking onions and realized she couldn’t smell any stenches once she was done. She’s looking forward to seeing long-term effects of her new APCO.

We at TML Service Experts extend our condolences to Kim and her family.
