Mardall was best-known for his work leading the development of the Model Y heat pump. This same system would later be touted as a solution to produce ventilators from existing Tesla parts if ventilator shortages become a real threat in the United States due to COVID-19.

Besides his work on the Tesla crossover vehicle, Mardall worked on thermal and HVAC systems on the Model X and Model 3 and is named on several Tesla patents in the US.
