At IERNA We Began 2021 With a Blood Drive

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2021

IERNA’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing Continues Contributing to Community through COVID-19.

Tampa, FL. – January 26 – IERNA’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing (Lutz, FL) started the new year off with a curbside blood drive, partnering with Florida-based blood donation center, OneBlood on January 5th. Collecting more than 20 pints of whole blood, IERNA’s was determined to begin 2021 with a bang during their first of many charitable events throughout the year.

“IERNA’s has always been a family and community-oriented company,” said Charlene Ierna, Owner and President of the company. “Our first and foremost priority is giving back to the ones that have given so much to us. Without them, we would not be able to provide the services we offer.”

According to American Red Cross, one blood donation can potentially save up to three lives. Less than 38 percent of the population is eligible to give blood or platelets, giving rise to the importance of volunteer donors.

“It is never a matter of whether or not we will do it,” Ierna said, when asked if the company will continue to do blood drives. “It is about “When is the next one?”. Especially due to the events of the past year, if you’re fortunate enough to do so, giving back to those in need in whatever way you can is insurmountably valuable.”

Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. is in need of blood and since blood and platelets cannot be manufactured, voluntary donations are always in great demand.

Each donor was given a long-sleeve t-shirt, restaurant voucher, $20 gift card as well as a wellness checkup including a COVID-19 antibody test. IERNA’s was on site handing out their own swag including custom hand-sanitizer pens.

Donation appointments are available on a first-come-first-serve basis and are open to the public. Follow IERNA’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing on social media to be notified about their next blood drive on April 1st.

In the Press: Ierna’s Heating and Cooling in Gaceta Latina News

Monday, December 17th, 2012

Air of confidence that is returned to the community

Gaceta Latina | Lutz | Ierna's Heating and Cooling


By Maria D. Barros

Lutz, FL.- It’s true that there are several home appliances which we can do without, but in the sunshine state when it comes to well-being, air conditioning is a priority due to the high temperatures and relative humidity in the summer months.  Homes and buildings are designed based on the continuous operation of the equipment thus working at full capacity 365 days a year.

According to Charlene Ierna, Vice President of Ierna’s Heating & Cooling, a leader in repairs and sales of air conditioning systems in Tampa Bay, the average life span of an air conditioning unit varies between 5 and 7 years according to the care received, taking into account that the minimum routine maintenance should be carried out twice a year, while the filters should be changed at least once a month, without forgetting that the malfunction of the unit makes your electric bill increase.

In other words, the maintenance of your air conditioning will avoid the discomfort caused by the heat, humidity, and the pesky mosquitoes that are in the home or workplace, saving around 3-4 thousand dollars in the long term.

Definitely, one has to hire service that is guaranteed and this precisely is the work of Ierna’s Heating & Cooling, who has been on the market providing weatherization services for homes, manufactured homes, light commercial and new construction in the Tampa Bay area since 2003 when spouses Ron and Charlene started the business from a room of their home in Lutz. Year after year their business grows, thanks to the excellent professional service based on educating the customer by giving an honest diagnosis and their philosophy of building their business by creating long term lasting relationships with their customers and the community.  These nine years with 26,000 satisfied customers, Ierna’s Heating & Cooling has acquired four companies of HVAC, including the most recent acquisition of Armor Air Heating & Cooling of Trinity.  Adding about 6000 customers, has increased its workforce to 44 employees, with a fleet of 21 trucks on the road every day, and the recent acquisition of a remodeled and modern site (old Lutz Bank) located just a block away from its current location in Lutz planned to open on January 1,  2013.  All these facts make Ierna’s Heating &Cooling the largest contractor throughout the Tampa Bay area, serving the counties of Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas and Polk.

Ierna’s Heating & Cooling offers repair service, installation and preventative maintenance for heating and cooling for all makes and models, at $29.95 (about $ 50 in savings).  It is considered the most economical in the market because it includes complete checkup and cleaning of 21 points with the visit of the technician the same day and 24 hour service for emergencies with your HVAC system at any time of day.

Besides selling brand new Bryant systems, they also offer financing plans and maintenance and spare parts sales, ducts cleaning, air purification systems and electric generators.

“We guarantee the service the same day, and the next day if we do not have the part” Charlene said.

Estimates and second opinion on replacement systems are always free, with the faithful promise not to pressure the customer in making decisions.

Ierna’s Heating & Cooling is the largest Authorized Distributor of Bryant air conditioning systems in Florida and the third in the United States.

As for the technical service staff, they are certified by the most prestigious institutions demanding quality control and technical excellence, as NATE, EPA, FREON, and PURON for environmental conservation.

Ierna’s Heating & Cooling is a BBB accredited company and ACCA. Awarded the prestigious medal for excellence in the industry given by Bryant Heating & Cooling System for three consecutive years 2009-2010-2011 and recognized as Business of the Year in the category of cooling by the U.S. Local Business Association.

Its involvement with the community has earned significant recognition by nonprofit organizations in the Tampa Bay area, such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Florida Aquarium, among others. Appointed as Business of the Year for Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce, Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce and a countless number of awards and acknowledgments for their philanthropic partnership to benefit our community with clubs, sports leagues, schools, charities in the area, and others.

Ierna’s Heating & Cooling great success started with a vision by spouses Ron and Charlene.  Their philosophy of giving back to the community has paid off keeping customers, employees, and the community satisfied.

Ierna’s Heating & Cooling has a bilingual staff, consisting of four technicians and a customer service representative to help the Latino community in their language. For your next air conditioning check up, allow yourself the opportunity to experience the fastest, professional, affordable, and guaranteed service. To speak with a Spanish Representative please ask to speak with Rosie asked in Spanish, by calling tel. (813) 262-9000.
