Chillin' with Air America

Jasper and Eric Bergan, await your call at Air America.
Are you feeling a little chilly? Florida winters are certainly cooler than Florida summers but it’s during the summer when you really want to feel the chill, and there’s a way to maintain cool temperatures all summer long from a company that is licensed to keep you chilled.
Eric Bergan has been in the air conditioning and heating business almost without a break since 1981. After five years of kicking back and doing everything from managing a fish market to running a charter fishing boat, he felt it was time to get back to his roots, and in 1997, he opened Air America Air Conditioning & Heating in Holmes Beach. Building on personal contacts in the community going back to his participation on the board of the Community Center, combined with a great business reputation it didn’t take Bergan long to be up and running.
Air America offers a full range of air conditioning and heating services, including installation of new units and maintenance of existing ones. His company offers service contracts, duct cleaning, leak checking, free estimates and competitive pricing. Air America sells all brands of equipment fitting the manufacturer to the needs of the consumer.
He has 24-hour service available and you will always get a real live person on the other end of the phone when you call Air America. Bergan has deliberately kept his business small, offering personal service so he has the ability to be hands on in keeping track of his six employees. The company is strictly air conditioning and heating doing what it does best. Air America services all of Manatee County with special emphasis on Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key working within an approximate-15 mile radius.
With all of the recent government regulation of air conditioning refrigerants, Bergan has been keeping on top of the regulations. He is paying special attention to alternative refrigerant choices that would benefit his customers and adhere to government guideline.
Bergan is originally from the Dakotas where they know a thing or two about keeping cool. But when the Navy brought him to Key West, he decided Florida was the place for him. He fishes for grouper and cobia in his twin engine 25-foot boat and spends time with Air America’s mascot Jasper his Hurricane Charley rescue dog, when he’s not working on keeping the Island cool.
So relax and chill out by letting Air America keep your winters toasty and your summers chilly. It is, after all, “Licensed to Chill.”
