Air Conditioning Repair in Mount Pleasant, SC

Summers in the Lowcountry are hot, humid, and sticky. After a long day at the beach or downtown with your friends, nothing feels better than kicking back on the sofa while your air conditioning cools you off. On the other hand, nothing feels worse than walking into your home and feeling warm, stale air hit your face. Those who know, know – having your AC go out during a South Carolina summer is no joke. With time, a relatively minor inconvenience can turn into a real health problem.

In situations like these, something has probably gone wrong with your HVAC system. If your AC has stopped working in the middle of summer, it’s time to call Action Heating & Air Conditioning right away. Our team of certified HVAC professionals has years of experience repairing and servicing AC equipment. It doesn’t matter how old your unit is or what brand you bought – we have the skills to get your home comfort system up and running in no time.

Here are just a few of the AC issues that our talented team can help solve for you:
Air Conditioning Drainage Block

Air Conditioning Drainage Block

Over time, condensation builds up in your AC equipment because of its cooling process. This accumulated byproduct must be drained regularly, or the increased amounts of moisture can damage your air conditioner’s components.

Air Conditioning Drainage Block

Air Conditioning Refrigerant Leak

Refrigerant is the substance responsible for keeping your home nice and cool in the summer. When refrigerant levels drop due to a leak, it will affect your AC equipment’s ability to cool your home. If your HVAC unit isn’t blowing cold air, this could be a reason why.

Air Conditioning Drainage Block

Heater Keeps Running

This is a common AC issue in South Carolina and the U.S. in general. Sometimes this problem is fixed by switching your thermostat to “auto.” If that doesn’t work, you may have a broken thermostat or a wiring issue that needs to be addressed quickly.

Air Conditioning Drainage Block

Burning Odors

It’s normal for your heater to produce a slight burning smell if it hasn’t been used in a while. However, if you are experiencing a persistent burning smell during the summer months when your air conditioning is on, it could be a serious problem. Turn off your HVAC system immediately and call our office as soon as possible so that we may send out a technician to diagnose your problem.

Air Conditioning Drainage Block

Broken Air Conditioning Compressor Fan

This fan plays an important role in your AC unit’s heat transfer process. When your air conditioning fan breaks, your AC equipment won’t be able to cool your home off in the summer when it’s needed the most.

Common Signs That You Need a New AC Install in Mount Pleasant, SC

Trying to figure out whether your air conditioner needs to be repaired or replaced can be a tricky decision to make. Most people have a hard time letting things go, and that includes AC units. It can be hard to know when to let go of the old and welcome in the new. To help save you time and make your decision a little easier, keep the following signs in mind. If you find yourself saying, “that sounds like my AC unit,” it might be time for a new air conditioning installation.

Strange Noises

Almost all air conditioners make a bit of low-level noise as they warm up and turn off. However, if you hear loud, unusual noises, it might be a sign that your air conditioner’s time is coming to an end. Buzzing and rattling noises are often indicators of a loose part. Grinding and whistling noises may mean something more serious is happening. Because these issues won’t dissipate over time, it’s crucial to have your air conditioner examined if you hear loud, strange noises.

Frequent Repairs

Mount Pleasant AC repair is essential for keeping your air conditioner working efficiently. Sometimes, however, it makes more sense from a cost perspective to install a replacement system. This is especially true if your repairs are racking up. Some AC experts suggest using the “$5,000 rule” if you’re considering a new AC install. Simply multiply the age of your air conditioner by the costs you have been paying to repair your unit. If that amount is over $5,000, it may make more financial sense to install a new air conditioner rather than pay for expensive repairs throughout the year.

Higher Energy Bills

If you notice that your energy bill has significantly increased in price, it could be a sign that your HVAC unit is struggling to cool your home effectively. Try to be mindful of your air conditioner’s cooling cycles. If you notice frequent cycles, even in the summer, it could be the reason for your increased energy bill. In these cases, it’s best to have an expert test your system to see if a repair or replacement option is best for your family.

Age of Air Conditioning Unit

This sign is a no-brainer and one of the easiest ways to tell if you need to install a new AC system. On average, your HVAC unit will have a lifespan of 12 to 15 years. If your unit is more than ten years old and doesn’t have the “pizzaz” that it once had, it might be time to think about installing a new air conditioning unit.

R-22 Refrigerant

Old air conditioners usually require a type of refrigerant called R-22. This substance is very harmful to the environment and has been all but outlawed on newer HVAC systems. If your AC unit is old enough to require R-22, you should give serious thought to replacing your system with a newer, environmentally friendly solution.

Protecting Your Investment

Your air conditioning system works very hard every day, all year long to keep your home comfy and cool. Machines that work hard year-round are going to require maintenance and ongoing services to stay operational.

As a family-owned and operated HVAC company in Mount Pleasant, SC, we know better than anyone how expensive it can be to maintain an AC unit. We know that money doesn’t grow on trees. We also understand that finding last-minute resources to fix an air conditioning system can be challenging. That is why we offer extended warranties for your new or existing AC equipment. With an extended warranty from Action Heating & Air Conditioning, you benefit from repairs, replacement, and additional services covered under warranty. That way, you can enjoy your HVAC products as long as possible.

If you’re having second thoughts about purchasing an extended warranty, consider these points:
  • Generally speaking, HVAC equipment lasts anywhere from 10 to 15 years. However, warranties provided by the factory will often expire before the service life of your cooling unit is over. With an extended warranty, your indoor comfort system is covered even if the factory warranty expires.
  • Having an extended warranty on your AC system gives you the chance to project and plan for any HVAC costs. This helps you balance your budget and anticipate expenses so you aren’t caught off guard. Having a warranty will also help protect your budget against increases in labor and parts costs due to inflation.
  • If you’re thinking of selling your home, having an extended warranty may help raise your home’s value. You may also be able to transfer your extended warranty to your new home if you choose to do so.

She said they are more ready than ever after the pandemic changed annual 2020 events into virtual ones.

Secretary of Labor talks with union workers during visit to Port of Charleston

(WCBD)- United States Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh visited the Wando Welch Terminal to discuss supply chain disruption issues and the Biden-Harris administration’s support for workers and employers as the country’s economy recovers from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.His visit also came as union workers are fighting for jobs across the Cooper River at the new Hugh K Leatherman Terminal.“Dockworkers are essential workers in our country.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD)- United States Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh visited the Wando Welch Terminal to discuss supply chain disruption issues and the Biden-Harris administration’s support for workers and employers as the country’s economy recovers from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

His visit also came as union workers are fighting for jobs across the Cooper River at the new Hugh K Leatherman Terminal.

“Dockworkers are essential workers in our country. During the pandemic even though things might have slowed down a bit they still went to work everyday,” said Labor Secretary Walsh.

Labor Secretary Walsh toured some of the terminal in Mount Pleasant before meeting with members of the International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) in a parking lot just inside the port.

“We need to respect the worker who is doing the work. Whether you’re bringing the ship into port, whether you’re unloading the ship,” said Labor Secretary Walsh. “Whatever you do we need to respect the workers.”

According to the Associated Press, the ILA claims that its contract with the United States Maritime Alliance states that only union members can operate heavy lifting equipment, a job that is currently filled by workers from the South Carolina Ports Authority.

“As this port grows, we want to grow with it. We want to be able to do all the jobs that our colleagues do around the country and anywhere else in the world,” said Kenneth Riley, the President of ILA Local 1422.

The ILA says that the South Carolina Ports Authority is not honoring that contract, which means that the workers are not being allowed to work equipment such as cranes at the Hugh K Leatherman Terminal.

“In all other ports pretty much except for North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia our folks are doing all those jobs,” said Riley.

The South Carolina Ports Authority provided this statement to News 2 regarding the ILA.

At a time when the supply chain is seeing unprecedent cargo volumes, the additional capacity at the Hugh Leatherman Terminal is crucial to keeping the supply chain fluid. It is important that this terminal is operated at its full capacity now so the South Carolina Ports Authority can take full advantage of the many growth opportunities at hand.

Firearms retailer to relocate Charleston-area store after paying $6.4M for shuttered Bi-Lo

A Columbia-based firearms and fishing supply retailer plans to move its Mount Pleasant store to West Ashley after buying a shuttered Charleston supermarket site.An affiliate of JJE Capital Holdings, the private equity firm behind Palmetto State Armory, paid $6.4 million for the former Bi-Lo space at 1200 Sam Rittenberg Blvd. in October, according to Charleston County land records.The affiliate, Rice, Beans and Potatoes LLC, also mortgaged the site with a bank loan of $8 million. The mortgage was signed by Julian Wilson, an owne...

A Columbia-based firearms and fishing supply retailer plans to move its Mount Pleasant store to West Ashley after buying a shuttered Charleston supermarket site.

An affiliate of JJE Capital Holdings, the private equity firm behind Palmetto State Armory, paid $6.4 million for the former Bi-Lo space at 1200 Sam Rittenberg Blvd. in October, according to Charleston County land records.

The affiliate, Rice, Beans and Potatoes LLC, also mortgaged the site with a bank loan of $8 million. The mortgage was signed by Julian Wilson, an owner and real estate manager with JJE Capital Holdings.

The company bought the 5.5-acre site for $100,000 less than the price paid in 2015 for the 48,420-square-foot former food store and an outparcel building. The previous owner was Hancock White Columns of Athens, Ga.

A Palmetto State Armory representative did not return calls or emails seeking comment on a projected timeframe for the move from 3365 S. Morgan’s Point Road in northern Mount Pleasant, but store employees said the relocation is in the works.

An affiliate of Buck Management Inc. of West Ashley owns the 10.2-acre National Crossing Shopping Center in East Cooper where Palmetto State Armory currently operates in a former Food Lion grocery store.

Property owner Eddie Buck said representatives of the retailer told him they wanted to be out by the end of the year.

Buck said the firearms merchant’s main objectives for leaving were to have an indoor shooting range and to own the building.

When the East Cooper store opened about six years ago, Mount Pleasant would not allow an indoor shooting range because of the proximity to the Charleston National community and a neighborhood pool.

The firearms merchant has not said it plans an indoor shooting range in the new location.

Buck said he does not have a new tenant lined up for the space the retailer will vacate.

The former Bi-Lo site is zoned for general business use, but the buyers may run into a snag if a firing range is part of the plans.

“Palmetto State Armory has applied for and received building permits for interior renovations at that location, though not for a gun range, as that use is not allowed under the site’s current zoning,” city spokesman Jack O’Toole said.

The former Bi-Lo site near Sam Rittenberg and Old Towne Road remains empty, but work is underway on the structure.

The interior has been gutted, and a roll-off trash container with construction debris is parked out front. Roofers were working on the building in early November.

A loan business that was operating beside the former supermarket posted a sign on the door that it moved to a new location on Savannah Highway Nov. 1, leaving the small shop vacant as well.

The property also includes an outparcel building with an urgent care veterinarian and nail salon.

The Bi-Lo store closed in April after parent company Southeastern Grocers of Jacksonville decided to phase out the brand that got its start in the South Carolina Upstate in 1963.

The West Ashley supermarket was one of two Bi-Lo stores that remained in the Charleston area. The other was on James Island. It also closed in April and remains vacant. No plans have been announced for the space at 860 Folly Road.

Palmetto State Armory operates another Charleston-area store in Summerville.

The retailer’s other shops are in Columbia, Greenville, Ridgeland, Savannah and near Lake Norman north of Charlotte.

A new store in Myrtle Beach is expected to open in the spring in the former home of The Sun News at 914 Frontage Road near the juncture of U.S. Highways 501 and 17 Bypass.

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Since 1954, folks have been singing the timeless holiday classic “Home for the Holidays,” putting further emphasis on the need to make it home to spend time with family and friends.

That wasn’t in the cards for my Thanksgiving this year, but that didn’t mean I stayed put. I was able to spend time with friends in Charleston, South Carolina and with that came a bevy of great eats.

So buckle up for this Cape Fear Foodie Road Trip as we highlight some tasty spots to check out in Charleston.

Brunch: The Mustard Seed, Mt. Pleasant

A chic location with a variety of seating, The Mustard Seed is a long, thin building with an extensive menu. It boasts your Southern staples like Shrimp and Grits or Biscuits and Gravy, while also delivering Eggs Benedict with fried green tomatoes and crab cakes. The latter was my choice, and I have to say the crab, cornmeal fried tomatoes, and perfectly made poached eggs worked well together. A good way to get your Sunday going for some daytime exploring through this historic town.

BBQ: Lewis Barbecue, Charleston

One thing that’s surprised me over the last few years is the lack of truly special BBQ joints around the Cape Fear. Sure people have their favorites but I’m talking about a destination restaurant. That’s exactly what Lewis BBQ is. As soon as you walk up, the smokehouse billows those intoxicating smells into the courtyard. A bar serving local brews greets you when you walk in, then it’s all about the food. I snagged some “moist” sliced beef brisket, a “Texas Hot Guts” housemade sausage and some mac & cheese. The meat alone was worth the entire trip, expertly smoked, tender and popping with flavor. The mac & cheese is still stuck to my ribs, while other sides likes collard greens or spicy pinto beans were also memorable. If you’re in the area, you absolutely must stop here. It’s that good.

No-Frill’s Seafood: Red’s Ice House, Mt. Pleasant

A popular spot to watch live sports, Red’s even has it’s own “Football Menu” with special items to enjoy during the big game. However don’t let the honky-tonk sports vibe keep you away, Red’s also has a hefty seafood menu at reasonable prices. From fresh peel ‘n eat shrimp, She-crab soup, roasted corn and lobster dip and jalapeno hush puppies, the finger foods are every bit as impressive as the massive fried seafood platters. If you’re looking for a place to kick back and enjoy some coastal treats in flip-flops and t-shirts, this is the place.

Fancy Seafood: Oyster House Seafood Restaurant, Charleston

Situated across the street from the Charleston Market, the Oyster House stays true to its namesake. There is a nice list of oysters that span the East Coast, though the mignonette sauce could have been a bit zippier. The Garlic Mussels were top notch, with a nice bit of white-wine and garlic butter sauce to soak up with French bread. The bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp with crab stuffing took the cake here though and was one of the best things I ate all weekend. I also had a massive Wedge salad that could have fed four and a Whole Crispy Red Snapper that was perfect. The Oyster House isn’t cheap, but worth your attention in a town full of great spots to eat.

While that’s just a small sampling of the cornucopia of food options Charleston has to offer, I couldn’t complain about any of the locations. I’m sure there are plenty of better places to visit, and maybe one day I’ll get around to trying some of them, but this was enough for my Cape Fear Foodie Road Trip.

Have suggestions for a return visit? I would love to hear about them! Shoot me an email at corey.preece@gray.tv
