Comfortmaker pricing

The price for a Comfortmaker furnace varies by unit and installation costs. The higher the AFUE ratings, the higher the price tag. Comfortmaker furnaces are more expensive when they come with features that enhance convenience and/or performance. The best way to get an accurate price is to reach out to a local HVAC professional because the total installation costs depend on the amount of ductwork needed and the size of the home. The location of the installation can also affect the cost.

Comfortmaker warranties

Comfortmaker offers a no-hassle replacement limited warranty if the compressor, coil, or heat exchanger fails. A one-time replacement of a comparable unit is provided. They also offer a 10-year parts-limited warranty that requires registration within 90 days of purchase to access the full benefits.
