Serving Northern Kentucky & the Cincinnati Region Since 2005
When Greater Comfort was founded in 2005, our founder/President, Dan Lickert, had a mission: to do things differently as a trusted heating and cooling company.
That mission and vision—to be great at what we do, but also make great contributions to our community—still stand today thanks to our core values and commitments. Those commitments include great customer service; quality solutions and products; innovation; continual learning; and long-lasting, prosperous relationships with our customers.
Based in Newport, Kentucky, we’ve served more than 45,000 customers in the last 15 years. Today, our residential heating and cooling team serves Kentucky, Southwest Ohio, and Southeastern Indiana. Our commercial heating and cooling team serves Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and Tennessee.
We’re a growing team of HVAC technicians that believe in doing right by each other, our customers, and the communities we serve. We’re passionate about providing you and your family with high quality, reliable and innovative care. That’s why you’ll often hear us say, “Your comfort is our promise”—because it is.
Meet the Greater Comfort Team

To provide a fun, safe nourishing company whose product rivals the” get it quick strategy” we encounter today. I love my family both at home and at work. Always striving to ensure we are leaving everything we are encountering, better than how we found them, people first.
