Comfort Master APU – Discontinued

Due to the continuation of awful reviews on the Comfort Master product we can no longer recommend the Comfort Master. It was a brilliant idea poorly executed and flawed by it’s many failed contracts with fly-by-night manufacturers in the shady parts of Michigan. I am told the latest in this parade of criminal and near criminal organizations is a company called Acemco out of the same area. According to customers, Acemco has deliberately driven Comfort Master into the ground in an effort to rid itself of the original owner and founder of Comfort Master. In doing so it has destroyed vendor relations and made any chance of providing warranty impossible due to a complete lack of parts from it’s vendors. Whatever their internals struggles might be one thing is clear, their actions have left their once loyal fan base (AKA their customers) face down in the mud. While they currently have no phone number or website if these guys do manage to reincarnate this failed company again our recommendation is to steer clear of the Comfort Master product and it’s many clones. A few these troubled past assemblers from this area of Michigan include Weldmation , Michigan Gage and Manufacturing, Prater Industries (AKA – Koppy Corp) which is now known as Mantis Metal Works.

 

The information provided below is purely for historical record only as Comfort Master appears to be out of business for good.

I bought one of the first APU’s from these guys. I had a lot of problems initially but they really stood behind their product. When the dealer started flaking out the owner stepped in and made it right.

These APU units suck!!!!!!!!!!!! So many issues and problems. They spend more time trying to figure out how to place the blame on you then they do to just fix this POS!! I recommend to EVERYONE looking at an APU, DON’T DON’T DON’T DON’T waste your time and especially your money on these worthless P O S units!! They are terrible and I mean terrible. We had two of them and they are both worthless. We now have the Willis APU’s and they are perfect. So don’t waste your valuable time and especially your money!!!

Just my experience, but I picked up one of these apu units a couple years back after the idle laws changed. The install was pretty simple (because they did it for me), and it looks pretty slick next to my cab. I’m not really sure what constitutes a great APU other than it simply works. Mine has been running on hard use since purchase and thats whats important to me.

Had a RigMaster (AKA RigBlaster) on the truck when purchased. It never ran more than 2 or 3 weeks till it needed something else fixed.
After much research, decided on the Comfort Master APU. Have had this unit for 2 months. Had a small issue at first. Returned to have the upgrades done & this unit has been working hard ever since.
This is a high quality unit. It runs very quiet. I could not be happier with this APU or the customer service.
Great APU !!! Thank You Tyler !
(The small issue that they had with the unit has been figured out and I am sure they have corrected all other units before they are installed.)
