Jan. 4, 2012: Rapid Recovery Opens Connecticut Location for Its Refrigerant Recovery Services

PEORIA, Ariz. — Rapid Recovery, a nationwide refrigerant abatement company, has announced the opening of its Connecticut territory. John Haynes will own and operate the business. Rapid Recovery noted that it’s the company’s first location in the Northeast and will serve the New England area.

This marks the 29th location for the provider of refrigerant recovery services. With locations from coast to coast and work experience in over 43 states, Rapid Recovery said it continues to expand to meet the need for EPA compliant refrigerant recovery. The company said its use of AHRI-certified gas-powered recovery equipment gives it a distinct speed advantage and is a key factor as to why it is expanding to meet demand throughout the United States.

“Industry leading EPA documentation and superior service are just two of the things that set Rapid Recovery apart,” said Adam Dykstra, president of Rapid Recovery. Another aspect is the company’s franchise model, which Dykstra explains is “great service backed by local ownership that provides a great partnership for local contractors.”

Dykstra said, “We are a genuine service company to HVAC, mechanical, and demolition contractors as well as in-house facilities departments and government agencies. As the burdensome cost of technicians’ time, equipment, maintenance, and expensive yet inadequate off-the-shelf recovery equipment are realized, Rapid Recovery is in prime position for continued growth. Contractors are realizing that outsourcing the refrigerant recovery process to an expert can add profitability to their jobs, free up important technician time, and meet all of their EPA documentation needs as well.”

Rapid Recovery’s Connecticut operation will be operated by John Haynes and his lead technician, Bryan Thibedeau. “We can recover as much as 500 pounds of refrigerant in an hour, 10 times faster than your average recovery machine. This saves contractors a ton of costly time that can be repurposed to more productive activities than waiting around on recoveries. Then, add the fact that we assume all of their EPA liability for every pound of refrigerant we recover and you see why we are expanding so rapidly,” said Haynes.
