Air Conditioner Ratings part 7: Reviews of the Comfort-Aire, Comfortmaker, & Comfortstar brands



This is a brand from HEAT CONTROLLER which is a part of MARS and is sold through factory authorized dealers.

The RSG14 series units are basic units with durable scroll compressors. They use micro channel coils for a smaller footprint in your landscaping and composite base pans for quieter operation. The units have a louvered metal jacket to protect the condenser coil fins but they do not use a powder coat finish on the units. The guarantee on the compressor is very good but for the rest of the unit's parts it is not as good as other brands. 

Comfort-Aire RSG14 Series


This is one of the brands from INTERNATIONAL COMFORT PRODUCTS which is a part of UNITED TECHNOLOGIES CORP. The PERFORMANCE 14 (N4A5) units are basic air conditioners with a durable powder coat finish but they use a wire coil guard to protect the condenser coil fins which does not actually do much to protect them. The units have a 14 SEER efficiency to meet all of the regional standards but their guarantee is not very good when compared to other brands. The SOFTSOUND DELUXE 19 (CCA9) is a premium unit with a variable speed fan motor, swept wing fan blade, and compressor blanket for quiet operation. They have a good guarantee but it is only average when compared to other brands.

The CVA9 model is an ultimate air conditioner with five stages of compressor operation for energy savings.

The units are sold in the USA and Canada but only through their approved dealer network.

Comfortmaker SoftSound Deluxe 19


Comfortstar ADA2

The ADA2 models are a part of their QUANTUM SERIES and have an efficiency of 14 seer. They have a durable scroll compressor and fully louvered metal jacket to protect the condenser coil from physical damage. Their website is not much help and the warranty on the brand is not very good when compared to others.
