Here are just a few of the reasons why homeowners and business owners in South Carolina trust Action Heating & Air Conditioning:
If you need a trusted AC repair company in Summerville, know that our team is geared up and ready to help you today. While you browse our website, have a look at just a few of our specialties here at Action Heating & Air Conditioning:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
One of our goals as a company is to provide HVAC repair services at fair and competitive prices. In addition, we want you to feel confident about investing in high-quality heating and cooling systems without having to worry a lot about the costs. We make sure to provide honest and accurate quotes and we offer a variety of financing options. We want you to get the best bang for your buck, so here are some special offers.See Our Offer
If you are experiencing any of the problems above, be sure to hire a professional contractor to fix your issues. For your safety, don’t ever try to make HVAC repairs on your own unless you are trained. When the time come to have your air conditioning system repaired, our team of licensed AC technicians will handle all of the hard work on your behalf. That way, you can stay safe and have peace of mind knowing you’re in good hands.
Your HVAC system works hard all year long. If you have gone years without much maintenance or AC repair, you probably bought a great HVAC unit. However, with constant use and even normal wear and tear, even the highest-quality HVAC systems are prone to malfunctions. Eventually, it will need to be replaced.

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.
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.

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – The Flowertown Festival is preparing to make a big return following delays associated with the coronavirus pandemic.
The annual festival, which typically happens in the spring, was canceled in 2020 because of COVID-19 and pushed to take place in the fall this year.
Put on each year by the Summerville Family YMCA, the Flowertown Festival is a major fundraiser for the organization. This year’s event will have all the great things you expect.
“It has been such a long break,” said Kimberly Caughell, VP of Community Relations for the Summerville Family YMCA. “We missed it so much in 2020 and then the spring it was rescheduled to this October, really to do the responsible thing and give everybody a chance if they want to get the vaccine and be more comfortable in their surroundings.”
While it’s primarily an arts and crafts festival, you will also find business and civic vendors, and a host of food and food trucks. Plus, there are rides and games for the kids.
There will also be some Christmas-related booths this year since the event is being held in October.
“We had a vendor call and say that she doesn’t normally come to our show because she does holiday items and she was really excited to be able to join us for the fall event,” said Caughell. “I’m looking forward to some matching Christmas pajamas and some fun fall wreaths.”
Main Street in Summerville will be closed from East Richardson Avenue to West Carolina Friday through Sunday from 7:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.
South Magnolia will be southbound only and South Gum will only be northbound traffic.
Andrea Temple, who is from New York City, says she has lived in Summerville for about two and a half years. She is looking forward to her first Flowertown Festival.
“We managed to miss it in 2019,” she said. “Moving, we were all over the place. We didn’t get a chance to see it in 2020, so now we’re looking forward to it.”
The food, the people, and the fun: “Everything,” she said. “I just like the small-town feel, like seeing the people out and about, and looking at the vendors.”
This year’s Flowertown Festival will take place Friday: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.; Saturday, 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.; Sunday from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - The Summerville Sweet Tea Festival returns to Hutchinson Square this weekend after a shift in how things were presented last year because of the pandemic.
Summerville Dream, the nonprofit that organizes the festival, says this is the first festival on their calendar this year. While they have had some smaller entertainment events throughout the week after realizing those worked last year, Executive Director Steven Doniger says Saturday’s all-day festival will set the tone for future festivals returning soon.
“That’s what these things are really all about at the end of the day,” Doniger said. “Is that everybody came out, had a good time, had a chance to reconnect with one another and get a chance to see the magic of Summerville because this is an extraordinary downtown and a great community for people to come out and do things.”
The Sweet Tea Festival runs from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday.
Doniger says usually they have around 130 vendors, but they scaled that number down to about 70 this year to allow for more social distancing. He says the vendors are mostly all from South Carolina and will feature food, art, and crafts.
All the existing stores and restaurants in Hutchinson square will be open as well.
Some of the event staples return like sweet tea tasting, a contest to vote on your favorite, and restaurants featuring special sweet tea-inspired entrees.
“Downtown Summerville is the heart of Summerville,” Doniger said. “This is our historic district. This is where our small businesses thrive, this is the backbone of everything we do. So, when we can bring out people and have them exposed to our downtown, do some shopping and dining, it’s always a wonderful thing. We have to recognize that it’s been a really difficult year for everybody, but economically, we have to also work together to find a balance to go ahead and keep our doors open, lights on, and activities happening.”
Doniger says in previous years, they estimate millions of dollars were brought in from the festival from meals, shopping, hotel stays, and people traveling.
He says there are a few people who travel from out of state, but it’s mostly a celebration of Summerville and the Lowcountry, which is where the majority of visitors will be from.
Doniger says throughout the year, they’ve seen a steady rise in visitors and expect 10,000 to 12,000 people will visit the Sweet Tea Festival throughout the entire day.
The Sweet Tea Festival is free to attend. Doniger says masks are recommended and folks are asked to social distance as much as possible.
Little Main Street and the cross streets around Hutchinson Square, like West Richardson Avenue, will be closed Saturday afternoon for the Sweet Tea Festival.
For last year’s festival, organizers shifted the style to smaller events held throughout the week.

Small magnitude 3.3 quake hits 5 miles southeast of Summerville, South Carolina, United States early evening
A magnitude 3.3 earthquake near Summerville, Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA, was reported 32 minutes ago by the United States Geological Survey, considered the key international and national agency that monitors seismic activity in the US. The earthquake occurred at a very shallow depth of 4 miles beneath the epicenter early evening on Monday, September 27th, 2021, at 6:21 pm local time. Magnitude and other quake parameters can still change in the coming hours as the agency continues to process seismic data.Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.3 as well.Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter. Weak shaking might have been felt in Centerville (pop. 5,300) located 4 miles from the epicenter, Ladson (pop. 13,800) 4 miles away, and Summerville (pop. 48,800) 5 miles away.Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Goose Creek (pop. 40,600) located 7 miles from the epicenter, Hanahan (pop. 18,000) 8 miles away, North Charleston (pop. 108,300) 12 miles away, and Mt. Pleasant (pop. 81,300) 20 miles away.

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - Dorchester District Two is asking parents to get their kids tested as soon as COVID symptoms appear, and report the results to the district as soon as they know.
DD2 Director of Nursing Amanda Santamaria says the district tries to notify parents about close contacts to COVID within 24 hours of them learning about them, but she says they cannot contact trace until they are told about a positive case.
Jonelle Young is the parent of a DD2 high schooler. She says she is concerned because sometimes she is not notified until days after the exposure.
“Because now she’s already been there all those days,” Young said. “So, we’re almost done with it. And I understand it must be really hard and frustrating for teachers and administrators, but then it’s kind of a broken system.”
Dorchester District Two’s Nursing Services team says they’ve seen COVID-19 cases decrease since they went completely virtual for seven school days about a month ago. They are now asking parents and students to work with them by reporting cases as soon as possible, so they can improve contact tracing efforts.
“We can only contact trace when we receive the information from parents,” Santamaria said. “So, if we receive a report that a student tested positive today, but their symptoms started last Thursday, we have to contact trace all the way back to last Tuesday.”
Santamaria says if there is a delay in the notification process, it’s because the district was also notified late about it.
She says she understands this is frustrating for others, especially when having to quarantine a second or third time.
“So we will continue doing everything we can to mitigate the spread and keep students safe and unfortunately when exposures happen we hope that they will understand it’s just something that we have to do,” she said.
Santamaria says each elementary and middle school in the district has at least one nurse and all high schools have two. While nurses handle most of the contact tracing throughout the day, she says they do use extra help when needed.
She says they are hiring substitute nurses for when they need extra help or when a nurse is out.
If you are interested, you can apply on the DD2 website.
The substitute nurses they hire can be registered nurses or licensed practical nurses who have valid nursing licenses. They do not need a separate registration to work in schools.
