How can we help you

VRV / VRF Variable

Variable Refrigerant Volume (VRV) is a multi-split HVAC technology invented and pioneered by Daikin. Other manufacturers refer to their versions as Variable Refrigerant Flow to avoid copyright infringement (Daikin trademarked VRV in 1982). Both rely on the same underlying technology: inverter compressors.

HVAC Sheet Metal

Lightning Mechanical does its own sheet metal fabrication for custom residential and commercial HVAC systems. Sheet metal fabrication is performed in-house at our Maplewood, New Jersey facility. We do not subcontract any of the sheet metal fabrication work, nor do we purchase fabricated sheet metal parts from outside suppliers.

VRV Design

The Daikin VRV system is a multi-split air conditioner for commercial buildings that employ variable refrigerant flow management; patented by Daikin Industries LTD in 1982, it gives clients the option to maintain a unique zone control in each room and level of a building. Lightning Mechanical's intimate knowledge of this system and all of its components makes us frontrunners in VRV design nationwide.

Maintenance, Repair and Installation

Air Conditioning

We strive to keep your equipment working flawlessly. Our teams have saved clients millions of dollars through proper maintenance, preventative repairs, and reduced downtime of their air conditioning system.

HVAC Maintenance

Air conditioners and heating require regular maintenance for long-lasting performance. We offer comprehensive services to keep your system operating at its optimal level. These services include:

  • Inspections and Checks
  • Comprehensive HVAC Inspection
  • Furnace Inspection and Cleaning
  • Heat Pump Inspection and Cleaning
  • Filter Replacement
  • Tune-Up Packages

We want to keep you in the loop rather than simply rip out a filter or replace a compressor. Our expert teams diligently scrutinize all of our repairs to know precisely what the problem is and take preventative measures. We work to analyze the root cause of the issue and communicate this to our clients. We help you avoid a minor issue turning into a more significant problem down the line. Our job is to keep your equipment running smoothly. We aim to provide you with timely reports that keep you informed on the status of your system. A preventative approach will save you money in the long run, avoid issues such as mold and fungi growth, and keep your system running smoothly.

We also cover Boston and Albany through the Lightning Service Group, a subsidiary of Lightning Mechanical LLC.

Lightning Mechanical is here to help with air conditioning units and heating in New York Metro City at lightning speed. Contact our Service Division and find out how we can help you today.

Maintenance vs Service, what's the difference?

Say you are the proud owner of a VRV system Daikin offers; maintenance will protect you from needing a service. Simply put, maintenance is done yearly (at least), and service is a call-out to repair something that has or might go wrong. We do both. Even if you already have a maintenance contract with another provider, hire us for service, and we'll make sure the problem is fixed for good.

HVAC Installation

Lightning Mechanical has been a leading HVAC equipment and construction provider for years. We have a strong presence in installation and can provide various solutions for your business needs.

The Daikin brand is an industry leader in creating reliable, high-performance equipment. They go above and beyond to develop long-lasting, energy-efficient products. But they may not have the perfect solution for your specific needs. That's why our customers benefit from advanced advisory when choosing an HVAC system. Whether it's Daikin or any other brand, we can inform you choices on everything from energy efficiency to installation time and warranty coverage.

Our expertise has benefited everyone, from homeowners with indoor comfort needs to companies with stringent temperature requirements. We bring accessibility and understanding to the world of energy-efficient air conditioning to each client's business or home.

Contact us today for a high-quality, professional approach to all of your HVAC installation and construction needs.
