Nancy and Bill Berning Jr


Robert L. Dancer founded his heating and air conditioning company in 1946. In 1967, Willis Bulmahn bought the business and worked diligently to make "Doc" Dancer, Inc. a household name in the Fort Wayne heating & air conditioning market. Upon Willis' death in 1998, Bill & Nancy Berning (Willis' son-in-law & daughter) became the new owners and they continue to operate the business today.


Our mission at "Doc" Dancer, Inc. is to provide you with responsive and trusted heating and air conditioning services. Our experienced technicians are dedicated to ensuring your comfort and peace of mind.
