Proof Luma Comfort Products Are Strong and Durable

Not many people know the feeling of destroying something of great value. The infamous move of rock stars slamming their electric guitars to the ground is something we’ve all dreamt of actually doing. We imagine it would feel powerful and not to mention super fun. Well, that’s almost exactly what we did at Luma Comfort’s Headquarters. We let some of our employees let off steam by handing them a bat and allowing them to swing at a few products.

As a company, we are committed to providing customers with innovative, quality products that make you feel comfortable in your living or work space. Our goal is to offer products of value and style to complement any decor, and strive to meet the ever-changing needs of our consumers. We pride ourselves in bringing you reliable, and durable products that are made to last for years of enjoyment. Each product is made with easy-to-use functions and a sleek design that is environmentally-friendly and cost-effective.

All products that we ship are tested by FedEx to ensure they meet the highest standards for shipping. From watching the video below, these strong men take a few hard swings before actually breaking the product into pieces. Their muscles aren’t as weak like we’ve seen on 50 Cent’s arm at the New York Mets game. The durability and strength of our products are not to be underestimated. Why don’t you try destroying your ugliest home appliance? Have fun watching! CLICK HERE or the picture below.

It’s Time For Luma Comfort to Care for the Wildlife

Image

Luma Comfort is thrilled to give back and save an important species of our entire ecosystem – BATS! We believe they’re misunderstood, and we could not pass up the opportunity to aid Second Chances Wildlife. Second Chances provides rehabilitation and safe release of injured, displaced, or orphaned animal. Since bats have a very specific living condition, we were more than willing to offer a few humidifiers in order to nurse them back to perfect health.

feed-possum

Founded in 2009, Second Chances shelters and cares for injured or orphaned wildlife in the wonderful Louisville, Kentucky. Each animal is fed, taught survival skills, and placed in a pre-release enclosure to simulate their own individual habitat. They are dewormed and vaccinated for healthier populations in the wild, which also decreases the risk of pets and humans receiving wildlife diseases. The company specializes in opossums, but accepts other mammal species including raccoons, skunks, squirrels, bats, and more!

One species that requires a lot of attention are bats. Bats are extremely beneficial to our ecosystem for several reasons. They eat insects, pollinate fruits and nuts we eat everyday, and disburse seeds throughout the rainforest for future growth. Their guano (poop) is also the best type of fertilizer that farmers truly appreciate! However, nurturing a bat back to health is very difficult since their environment requires humidity. This is something that is very difficult to produce at Second Chances, and the bats will dehydrate without it.

HCW10B-m

Luma Comfort is donating FOUR HCW10B Cool and Warm Mist Humidifiers to Second Chances Wildlife in order to support and comfort the bats currently sheltered. The HCW10B protects against dry air by providing cool and warm mist that covers up to 538 square feet. The bats will enjoy the micro fine mist as Second Chances is able to control the humidity with the built-in hygrometer. The tank operates up to 40 hours with a demineralization cartridge preventing lime scale and mineral buildup. Volunteers will be able to remove and clean the water tank for hassle-free work, and most importantly, the silent operation will not disturb the habitat.

We are excited to watch the healing and growth of these bats, and we can’t wait to receive the many updates on how well they’re doing!

Say Hello to the Luma Comfort IM200SS Clear Ice Maker

We are proud to introduce you to the newest member of the Luma Comfort family — the  IM200SS Stainless Steel Portable Clear Ice Maker!

Luma IM200SS Clear Ice Maker

Unlike other portable ice makers on the market today, the IM200SS clear ice maker makes crystal-clear ice cubes, just like the kind you would find in a swanky restaurant. It also has a stainless steel design that looks great in any kitchen. Best of all, the unit doesn’t require any plumbing or installation and can sit right on your countertop. That means you can take use it on the road just as easily at home. The Luma Comfort portable ice maker is perfect for home bars or RVs, and can make buying bags of ice a thing of the past.

Just because it’s portable doesn’t mean it isn’t powerful! The IM200SS clear ice maker uses the same modern commercial technology found in larger ice maker. The unit can make up to 28 lbs. of ice daily, and can hold up to 2 lbs of ice for several hours. The stainless steel IM200SS begins producing ice in less than 15 minutes and even features two cube sizes, allowing for some extra customization.

Clear ice cubes versus cloudy ice

Why is clear ice better? Clear ice cubes — like what you’d get from the IM200SS — melt as much as 5x slower than cloudy ice cubes. Clear ice also looks cleaner and gives a sophisticated and high class look to your favorite cocktails. Just check out the image above to see for yourself. It’s easy to see why clear cubes are the preferred ice type for bars, restaurants and even home bar aficionados.

Introducing our New PureClean Air Purifiers!

Say hello to the next generation in air cleaning!

Luma Comfort PureClean Air Purifiers

The new Luma Comfort PureClean Air Purifiers

We are very proud to announce the launch of our brand new air purifiers – the AP170W PureClean Air Purifier, and the AP400W PureClean Max Air Purifier. Both units use a revolutionary 5-stage air purification and cleaning process to battle the toughest air pollutants. This includes dust, pollen, mold and bacteria, as well as harmful gases and odors. Just in time for allergy season!

Here’s a quick overview of our new PureClean process, found only in Luma Comfor Air Purifiers:

  1. A carbon filter neutralizes odors and traps larger particles, like pet dander, dust and pollen
  2. The HEPA filter removes more than 99% of particles, down the smallest of small (0.3 microns, if you’re so inclined)
  3. A VOC filter absorbs harmful, you guessed it, VOCs. VOC stands for volatile organic compounds, which are carbon-based airborne particles
  4. The TiO2 filter, coated with titanium dioxide, which eliminates gases and bacteria when combined with stage 5:
  5. A UV bulb, which kills biological contaminants like bacteria and viruses, and works in concert with the TiO2 filter

Luma Comfort Launches New Line of Air Purifiers

Let us know what you think about our new products. We’re quite excited about them, and we think you should be too!

New Luma Comfort Humidifiers Available Now!

The summer heat hasn’t quite left us Southern California residents just yet, but our customers are letting us know that things are cooling down in other parts of the country.

As the seasons change, many of us will be turning on our heating systems to stay warm.  Although a warm home is a cozy one, warm air also usually equates to dry air.  The combination of indoor heating and cold winter air make for a dry environment that literally saps moisture from everything in sight.

In fact, the National Institutes of Health recommends using a humidifier to help relieve congestion from the common cold, flu and sinus infections.  Humidifiers can also alleviate dry eyes, eczema, itchy skin, dry nasal passages, cracked lips and nosebleeds due to dry air, allergies or asthma.  That’s why we’re excited to coincide the launch of our 2 new humidifiers – the HC12W and the HCW10B – with the start of cold and flu season.

Luma Comfort HC12W Humidifier

The Luma Comfort HC12W cool mist humidifier combines the proven energy savings of ultrasonic technology with stunning good looks.  Inspired by the shape of a floral vase, the HC12W not only keeps you comfortable, but it also looks good doing it.

We love how this beautifully designed humidifier blends in seamlessly with our room’s décor and lasts up to 45 hours per single tank fill.  The Luma Comfort HC12W also covers 650 square feet and features 8 adjustable mist settings with cheerful musical alerts.

Luma Comfort HCW10B Humidifier

Luma Comfort HCW10B Humidifier

Great for medium to large size living areas, this humidifier easily covers up to 538 square feet.  To help prevent white dust and mineral buildup, water passes through a demineralization cartridge, which really helps make maintenance easy.

Misting Fans Save the (Race) Day in Indy

Indianapolis 500 Race Track

Sunday’s Indianapolis 500 was nearly the hottest race day on record, with the temperature topping out at 91 degrees. The on-track temperature was even warmer, hitting 133 degrees midway through the race. Luckily for race fans, officials in Indy were prepared for the heat. According to the Indianapolis Star, track officials set up 78 misting fan stations throughout the Speedway. They received rave reviews from fans too:

“Those little misting stations are awesome,” Rose said. “It’s making it easier to stay cool.”

Thanks to proper planning and the large number of misting areas available, there were fewer medical issues and emergencies than track officials had initially feared. While roughly 200 fans were treated at the Speedway on Sunday, the majority were the result of intoxication.

As the summer goes on, expect to see misting fans pop up at outdoor events across the country to keep people cool and safe from the heat.

Introducing the New Luma Comfort MF24B Misting Fan

Luma Comfort MF24B 24" Misting FanToday we’re thrilled to announce the availability of our newest misting fan: the MF24B.  The Luma Comfort MF24B 24″ misting fan with centrifugal fan technology cools up to 800 square feet and lasts up to 4 hours when set on maximum speed.

The MF24B comes standard with a powerful 120V motor, a maximum of 1500 RPMs, an integrated 1.76 gallon water tank and baked-on powder coated finish with all-metal fan head and blades.  The Luma Comfort MF24B also boasts an impressive temperature drop of up to 40°F when used in ideal conditions.

Our management team initiated the plan to add a hybrid residential/commercial misting fan to our line of quality air moving and environmental control products.  The design to build process took over 5 months, and we think the MF24B has proven to be an excellent addition to our product mix because this unit is perfect for customers who need a misting fan that offers more power than a typical residential-style misting fan but still retains the style and design of a residential unit.  The Luma Comfort MF24B is also suitable for a wide range of applications, including patios, back yards, pool sides, warehouses, factories, garages, athletic fields and more.

You can find our new misting fan at authorized nationwide retailers starting today.  And with record-breaking hot temperatures in the Northeast this week, what better way to stay cool than with this great new product?

Announcing our New Eco-Friendly Cooling Products!

Lume Comfort official logoIf you haven’t already seen it, yesterday we officially announced the launch of our new line of eco-friendly cooling products! This new line of evaporative coolers and misting fans utilize the natural power of evaporation to provide cooling. this process doesn’t require any refrigerants or compressors, and use minimal amounts of electricity.

Our official announcement release goes into the evaporative cooling process in a bit more detail:

An example of the evaporation process can be likened to the cooling sensation one feels when stepping out of a pool or shower. Once water evaporates from the body, it also takes heat with it. Luma Comfort’s evaporative coolers and misting fans work similarly by drawing in hot air and producing a cooling effect using either water-saturated cooling pads (evaporative coolers) or a super fine mist (misting fans).

But what does that mean for you? With this new line of evaporative coolers and misting fans, you can lower the surround temperature by as much as 30 degrees, with next to no impact on the environment or your electric bill!

If you couldn’t tell, we’re very excited about this announcement and being finally able to share this news with everyone. A lot of hard work has gone in to the development of these units, and we’re sure that you’re going to just love them. We’ve also done our best to ensure that everyone can benefit from these new cooling products by developing a range of different sizes and styles. And the best part is that this is just the beginning, as our research and development team is already hard at work on our next line of products. In the meantime, look for the new Luma Comfort evaporative coolers and misting fans at a retailer near you very soon!

The Summer OlympicsLondon Summer Olympics 2012 logo

The best athletes in the world from more than 200 nations take center stage in London for the Games of the XXX Olympiad. Predictably, most of the US will be focused on Michael Phelps and the nations Swim Team. But we’re personally much bigger fans of the track and field events, especially the shot put and javelin.

February 29

That’s right, 2012 is a leap year, which means we all get a bonus day, absolutely free! While for many it will be a day like any other, we recommend taking advantage of the extra day to do something fun and outrageous. After all, this day only comes around every four years!

The year 2012 also means the next US Presidential Election. Based on the coverage of the primaries thus far, we expect to see record voter turnout this year, as well as a record number of political sketches on Saturday Night Live over the next 10 months.
