Rapid Locking System (RLS), a leading provider of press-to-connect fittings for the HVACR industries, recently partnered with Miracle Mechanical to provide much-needed HVAC repairs completely free of charge for a Georgia-based elderly women living with dementia and her daughter, who also serves as her primary caregiver.
RLS partnered with industry veteran Brent Ridley, who works for H & M Services Inc. — a father/son full-service heating, cooling and plumbing company, and Tool Pros podcaster. Brent and his wife Kathleen started Miracle Mechanical as a way to give back to the communities they serve. Since he launched it in January 2021, Miracle has successfully completed six projects for families in need all around the North Georgia area and are working on several others.
“It is a great privilege to support projects such as Miracle Mechanical that prioritize giving back to those in need in their community,” said Paul Schubert, president of RLS. “Many of our contractors and supplier partners are helping in their communities and our goal is to support them however we can by serving as their go-to partner.”
RLS’ sponsorship covered all supply and labor costs allowing Miracle Mechanical to provide a brand-new HVAC units (courtesy of Apex Supply), laundry dryer and lawn maintenance services. RLS press fittings were also used to install the HVAC units in both the attic and yard, ensuring a reliable, flame-free connection. Watch the full project take place here.
“We are forever grateful for partners such as RLS who continue to make our Miracle Mechanical mission possible and whose products we use, day-in and day-out, as we know they will provide a reliable, trusted connection for our customers,” Ridley said.
RLS press fittings connect in 10 seconds using a battery-powered tool and jaws, replacing the time-consuming process of manually brazing HVAC/R joints. The fittings result in faster, more consistent connections that reduces total installation costs, while also increasing jobsite safety by eliminating the use of an open flame.
