My AC guy put in several of these since 2013. 1 of the units replaced with the same size as the one pulled, now he tells me the unit is too small. The other unit does not cool below 80 and N**** T**** HVAC tells me nothing is wrong, yet the previous unit worked fine and cooled. I think the units are bad but also my HVAC contractor is bad.

"Cools great but always needs service"
My combo unit AC/heat was installed in November, 2010. I live in Texas and the first summer I used the AC was 2011. The compressor fan failed on July 3rd that year. Walter's Air came out that day and replaced the part without charging me. I have had the same problem for 4 summers since then with the exception being 2014, I think. It's out again as I'm typing this. I love the unit. It's quiet, parts are easy to find (so the installer says) and it cools my house without any effort. I have a 3 ton for a 1400 square foot house. I love the unit, just not the unpredictable (now predictable) issues with the compressor fan or module or whatever the issue is. Anyway, the heater is great! I have had no issues with the heating system whatsoever.

"Good so far"
Replaced a 20-year-old Rheem unit with a Comfortmaker CCA7 (seer 17) unit in the spring of 2014, along with a new natural gas furnace. So far, cooling bills are down by 50%, and the unit seem to be performing well. We live in West Central Texas, temperatures get to triple digits, and the unit does not seem to be struggling to cool the house. Condenser is very quiet, unit appears very well built, and coils are easy to clean. When the city inspector came to inspect the installation, he remarked that he was very impressed with the unit.

"Compressor out in 13 months"
Had installed on 06-06-14. Compressor died on 07-15. Had the contractor come out and he didn't even have to test it, he knew it was the compressor right away. 10-year warranty on the compressor but $595.00 labor. They have to put Freon in the new compressor. One month out of warranty. So don't think you're getting a free no-hassle replacement. They definitely took advantage of this 81-year-old woman. I had a Trane AC unit for years and had no trouble with it. I thought when they replaced my old unit I would be getting the same kind I had. They give me this junk called Comfortmaker. I'm on Social Security and live alone and they charged over $6000.00 for this thing and it dies after a year. What a shame.

On my third motor since the new unit was installed in November, 2012. Company covers the motor each time but dealer labor bills are $275. Big mistake in not checking the reviews before we purchased Comfortmaker. Called headquarters, no recalls and no other form of reimbursement.

"Cannot get parts for repairs"
I purchased my Comfortmaker on 2/18/2015 and have had nothing but problems with it freezing up. The service could not find the problems at first and when they did find out what was wrong, they could not find the parts to fix it. I have waited three days and it is not fixed yet. Still waiting on parts in a 100 degree temperature. I'm very unhappy with the product.

"$600 part broken at 4 1/2 years"
Installed by a home builder who was a crook. The circulating fan has died. The unit was installed in 2010. The replacement cost $600. Labor will run the repair cost up to nearly $1000. Piece of junk.

"Very, very, very dissatisfied"
We purchased a home in 2005 and the ComforMaker came with the home. This A/C is a bunch of junk. We start having problems with this unit after 7 years in the home. Now we have to replace the units within 10 years. I hate this unit and we would never recommend any products from this company.

"Dont buy Comfortmaker"
Had a Comfortmaker hvac unit put in 10 days ago and it's already broke down, what a piece of crap! I have a second repair man out here and he says Comfortmaker puts in a poor quality circuit breaker component in the unit and he always replaces them with a better quality one when he installs the unit. I recommend not to buy Comfortmaker.

"Love my Comfortmaker!"
I bought my Comfortmaker system from a local air conditioning contractor that offered me a couple of choices when it was time to replace my old system. The first thing I did was research reviews for my contractor to make sure he had a good reputation in my area. After I was confident I had a good contractor, I weighed the choices he offered. The choices that were offered to me were Trane, Lennox and Comfortmaker. The Comfortmaker was the best bang for the buck. I got a 16 SEER with a No Hassle Warranty, so if I ever have a major component fail I will get a brand new unit. The others don't even offer this option. My contractor also assured me that the local Comfortmaker distributor does a great job stocking warranty parts and supporting their dealers if issues were to arise. After reading all of the negative reviews here on Comfortmaker, I think that the biggest problem most have had is probably with the contractor that they chose to do the installation, not Comfortmaker equipment. My system has been running without a problem for 4 years and I couldn't be happier!!!
