VRV Variable refrigerant volume / VRF variable refrigerant flow

VRV and VRF heat pump systems are frequently the best solutions for cooling applications requiring flexibility and energy efficiency. Our experts can create a one-of-a-kind VRF or VRV system and install it according to your specifications. We can also service your existing equipment to ensure that you continue to obtain exceptional performance from this technology.

VRV Variable refrigerant volume / VRF variable refrigerant flow is the apex of HVAC technology. It enables a single device to govern enormous areas while remaining extremely energy-efficient and, as a consequence, environmentally beneficial. It operates on refrigerant alone, adjusting the amount sent to compressors to maintain setpoint temperature across different areas with minimal energy use. This makes it the go-to option for large residential and commercial properties with varying temperature needs.

VRV is a trademarked term designating Daikin's variable refrigerant volume system. They pioneered a technology that has become a mainstay of most product lineups. Non-Daikin solutions are referred to as VRF but operate on the same principles. The main difference lies in the operating logic of each design, with each manufacturer developing their metrics for how their products maintain temperature.

Forensic Engineering

Over the years, our forensic engineering services have assisted hundreds of clients with a scientific analysis of their air conditioning systems. We've examined mishaps and losses for various commercial clients and sectors, including manufacturing, power generation, petrochemical, and medical. We build on that experience to identify weak points in the system and carry out critical preventative repair, saving customers millions of dollars in the process.

Lightning Mechanical is familiar with the claims and litigation processes, having worked with large insurance companies and legal firms. We have engaged with US government authorities such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Chemical Safety Board (CSB) on significant loss accident sites.

Our forensic engineering services include damage evaluation and segregation, decision assistance for run/repair/replace, evaluation of repair's extent and cost, and auditing repair proposals.

We have examined several high-profile, large-loss situations and specialize in the following areas:

  • Machinery and Equipment Breakdown
  • Boiler malfunctions
  • Furnace failure
  • Fires and Explosions
  • Piping
  • Water Losses

Our interdisciplinary team of mechanical, metallurgical, civil, and electrical engineers has worked on countless projects and investigations. It is familiar with nearly every component and piece of equipment your HVAC system might comprise of.


When things go wrong, they need to be fixed quickly. At Lightning Mechanical, we understand that a malfunctioning or broken-down HVAC system is uncomfortable at best and costly at worst. Whether it is heat pumps not maintaining temperatures or obstructed ducts affecting efficiency, our teams carry most components onboard and are ready to be dispatched at a moment's notice.

Our technicians employ OEM, cutting–edge tools, and other equipment designed to limit intervention noise and time. When hardworking Americans entrust us with improving the air quality in their homes and businesses, we ensure they get what they paid for without delay or complications.
