Air Conditioning Repair in Cane Bay, 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 Cane Bay, 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

Cane Bay 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 Cane Bay, 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.

Cane Bay’s first half of basketball after finding out it was ranked inside the top 10 in Class 5A by the South Carolina Basketball Coaches Association was its worst 16 minutes of the season.

The Cobras have been dialed in since, though. The Cane Bay girls, ranked seventh at the time, eventually lost to then-No. 3 Summerville by two points, almost rallying from 17 points down to complete the comeback.

“If we had played the second half like we did the first half, it could have been a different story,” Cane Bay coach Ira Owens said.

Since, they’ve rattled off four wins a row to improve to 7-1 in the regular season. They were ranked ninth in the latest Class 5A poll.

Last time out, the Cobras clamped down on Hanahan, 52-3. The defensive performance was the best for Cane Bay’s girls in program history. In the regular-season opener on Nov. 30, Cane Bay also set a new program high in points with 74 in a 20-point victory against visiting Timberland High School.

“From the beginning, this team has meshed really well,” Owens said. “Our emphasis has been getting off to fast starts and playing good defense.”

Senior Jasmine Jenkins and junior Alaina Nettles power Cane Bay on the scoreboard, averaging 16.2 points and 15.3 points. Junior Lauren Thomas leads around the glass with 8.9 boards per game and is third in scoring with 7.7 points per game. Nettles and Jenkins are second and third in rebounding while Nettles leads in steals and assists.

Senior Tatum Carr, who hit a game-winning bucket against West Ashley earlier this month, averages 5.1 points and four rebounds per game.

The Cobras host Marian Catholic (Chicago Heights, Ill.) at 6 p.m., on Dec. 28 in the annual Carolina Invitational. The Lowcountry tournament has 48 girls teams and 24 boys teams competing in 10 different divisions.

More Berkeley County School District programs competing in the three-day tournament are Goose Creek’s girls, Philip Simmons girls, Berkeley’s girls, Stratford’s girls, Berkeley’s boys, Timberland’s boys and Cane Bay’s boys.

Northwood Academy’s teams are also in the tournament.

Stratford’s girls basketball team appears more than equipped to contend for the Region 7-AAAAA crown in the next month.

The curtains come up on the region slate Jan. 14 at Cane Bay and coach Kelly McNeil’s team has an opportunity to make a statement right out of the gate. The Cobras have been ranked as high as No. 7 in Class AAAAA this season.

Stratford is No. 5 and Cane is eighth in the latest S.C. Basketball Coaches Association rankings.

“I think we’ve made a lot of growth since the beginning of the season,” McNeil said. “I’m seeing more maturity and understanding what we’re trying to do. Maturity-wise a case in point would be the Timberland game. We’re up seven with about 2½ minutes to go and we run a stall game without turning the ball over. We’re able to finish things.”

It’s not far-fetched to believe the winner of Stratford’s region opener could go on to capture a No. 1 seed for the playoffs. Cane Bay improved to 12-3 with a 57-46 victory at Ashley Ridge on Jan. 5, ending a 15-game skid against the Foxes.

Cane Bay opens region play at home on Jan. 11 against Wando, which snapped Goose Creek’s seven-year region win streak last year.

“The biggest thing is we have to play smart,” McNeil said about the Cobras matchup. “We’ve got to make the most of every possession and keep second chances at a minimum. If we both come to play and don’t back down, it will be a very good game.”

The Knights improved to 12-2 on the season with a 44-35 road victory at West Ashley on Jan. 5.

Junior guard Yasmine Cook poured in a game-high 20 points for the Knights and grabbed six rebounds. Junior guard Kaleyia Brown added nine points and four steals. Junior guard Kirstin Prudhomme chipped in seven points and seven assists.

On the season, Cook (16 points per game) and Brown (11 ppg) power Stratford offensively. Prudhomme is out front in rebounds, steals, assists and blocks.

While Cane Bay and Stratford might enter the region as the favorites based on the first half of the season, Goose Creek, Berkeley and Wando will be right there on game nights.

“Everybody has to stay motivated and hungry,” McNeil said. “There is not one team anybody can take for granted. Also there are a lot of great coaches in the region.”

In Cane Bay’s win at Ashley Ridge, junior Alaina Nettles poured in 24 points while Jasmine Jenkins added 12 for the Cobras.

Overcrowding in Cane Bay has residents concerned for future

BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) — Last Tuesday, there was a meeting within the Berkeley County School District to discuss changing attendance lines within the county because of overcrowding in the Cane Bay area....

BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) — Last Tuesday, there was a meeting within the Berkeley County School District to discuss changing attendance lines within the county because of overcrowding in the Cane Bay area.

Although the measure was not voted on, the problem of overcrowding remains within the area.

Berkeley County as a whole has experienced a 34 percent increase in population over the last decade. That’s the second highest rate of any county in the state.

This is partially due to the popularity of the area’s school system and community. It’s why Cane Bay resident Ashley Hill moved to the area two years ago.

“The reason that I like it here so much is because we have a sense of community and how Cane Bay trails, I get to experience that and golf cars and stuff like that,” Hill said.

But the space has started to become crowded. Since 2010, the Cane Bay population has grown from 1,321 people to 12,362 residents.

Right now approximately 75 percent of the land is permitted for expected build-out.

“They are going up so quickly,” Hill said, “It has grown tremendously. The traffic around here has gotten a lot more aggressive. I believe that even with school days, I mean, just trying to figure out how to get into the elementary school or the middle school because they're so close to each other, it makes it difficult for the people who are trying to go to work.”

Cane Bay currently has 5,941 building permits issued and 510 are under construction.

That means the number of residents may grow even more than the current population of 12,000.

There are also 7,950 entitlements for expected build-out in the Cane Bay area.

So that begs the question: Are Berkeley County officials prepared to deal with the growth in the community?

I took that question straight to Berkeley County Supervisor Johnny Cribb and here was his response:

“In the last several years, there's not a whole lot that we've rezoned or approved, but it's really the entitlements that that are out there.”

Cribb says that he hasn’t approved many building permits during his three years in office. But despite that, there are still thousands of permitted builds that have yet to take place.

So I asked him what his plan for the future was.

“If you look at what's going on in the world right now, anybody pretends to know what's going to happen is they're playing make believe,” Cribb said.

He said that the current market place, partially due to the coronavirus pandemic, has made it hard to predict when build-outs will happen and what the area will look like in the future.

Not satisfied with the answer to my question, I went to other officials to get more answers.

I asked the Cane Bay representative of the Berkeley County Council Caldwell Pinckney about the growth in the community.

He said that council does realize the threat the growth in the area has and it will be dealt with eventually. However, he said it has “not gotten to the point where we have had to sit down and talk about it.”

“Even in the most aggressive scenario, [build-outs are] years away. So two or three years, there's no way you could build out all that out in two or three years,” Cribb said.

When asked if a building moratorium would be considered to slow down some of the developments in Berkeley County ,both Cribb and Pinckney said it wasn’t on the table at this time.

Cribb does say that he believes the main solution, and the focus for him right now, is the roadways around the Cane Bay area.

“You put $65 million to widen 176, $82 million for Nexton I-26 interchange, so people would have their own interchange and doing improvements in the community.” Cribb said, “The biggest thing is, for us, almost three years now I have been relentlessly pursuing what I can control. And it's any new things that come in, and frankly, how can we improve the quality of life for the people that have moved out there who are the ones that created the growth.”

Cribb also said he is working with water and sewer officials to prepare for the influx of houses coming in the area.

One question I did pose to Pinckney was if the county would consider utilizing impact fees to help fund the building of new schools in the Cane Bay area. Pinckney said that he does believe impact fees are in place to an extent, but are not covering the whole budget.

But for residents like Hill, they believe that there is a lot being overlooked which only adds to their concern about the future of Cane Bay.

“I'm concerned with the overpopulation. I do not feel like the county has taken any hasn't thought about with all these, you know, kids that are coming in. Where they're supposed to go.”
