About "Doc" Dancer Heating & Air

Your Comfort is Our Priority

What type of work can you expect from “Doc” Dancer Heating & Air? Being a locally owned Fort Wayne business for 75 years, we are big enough to meet your emergency heating & air conditioning needs, small enough to know our regular customers, and established enough for you to feel confident we’ll be around long after completion of our work to guarantee your satisfaction. Customer satisfaction is our number-one goal at “Doc” Dancer, Inc., and your family’s comfort is a top priority.


“Doc” Dancer Heating & Air has been a Fort Wayne mainstay since 1946 when Robert Dancer founded the company.  In 1966 Willis Bulmahn took over ownership of the company.  He grew the business into a household name in the Fort Wayne area.  Son-in-law Bill Berning Jr. started with the company in 1984 and at the passing of Willis in 1998, Bill took over running the business.


Today, the business is owned and operated by Bill & Nancy Berning, Steve Biggs, and Dale Hubert (pictured here). Our mission at “Doc” Dancer Heating & Air is to provide the highest quality craftsmanship in design, installation and service of Heating, Air Conditioning and Ventilation systems for our residential and light commercial customers. We will honor God in our business conduct and by nurturing our valuable team members.
