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 Daniel Island, 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.

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.

Bishop England girls’ basketball coach Paul Runey was expected to reach another coaching milestone on Tuesday, Jan. 18, when the Bishops played North Charleston. The veteran coach was aiming for his 750th career victory on Tuesday evening, after the paper went to print.
One thing was just as impressive: Runey’s team was gunning for its 114th consecutive region victory when the Bishops hosted the Cougars at Father O’Brien Gymnasium in a Region 8-AAA contest.
Ironically, North Charleston, which entered the game with a 2-8 record, was the last team to defeat the Bishops in region play. On Jan. 4, 2011, North Charleston posted a 67-54 victory over the Bishops when the schools competed in Region 6-AA.
Since then, the Bishops have averaged 66.4 points per game in region play while allowing only 29.7 points per game.
Runey, meanwhile, began the 2021-22 season as the state’s sixth winningest girls’ high school basketball coach, according to Palmetto’s Finest, the official publication of The South Carolina High School League.
Runey has moved up to No. 3 on the list as the Bishops posted nine victories in their first 15 games. Only Anne Long and Fred Senter have more career victories as girls’ high school basketball coaches in the Palmetto State.
Long coached at Dutch Fork and Spring Valley from 1974-2015 and logged 824 career victories. Senter coached at Mullins from 1961-2006 and posted 792 career wins.
Runey was at the helm of the program when the Bishops won their first state title during the 2011-12 season. The Bishops posted a 236-21 record from 2011-12 to 2020-21 and won six state titles to become the gold standard for girls basketball in South Carolina.
BE alum wins D3 football title
Remember Bishop England standout football lineman Adam Dobbins?
The Hanahan resident played on two state championship teams for coach John Cantey as the Bishops won back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012.
Well, he’s still winning championships as a football player. The 6-foot-1, 295-pounder was a member of the Mary Hardin-Baylor football team that recently won the NCAA Division III title.
In mid-December, Mary Hardin-Baylor posted a 57-24 victory over North Central (Illinois) in the NCAA Division III national championship game, which was contested in Canton, Ohio.
Mary Hardin-Baylor, located in Belton, Texas, finished with a 15-0 record. The Crusaders “claimed” a 20-0 record during the 2021 calendar year because the American Southwest Conference played a five-game spring schedule to compensate for not playing in the fall of 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dobbins began his college career playing for Wheaton College, located in Chicago.
He is working on his MBA at Mary Hardin-Baylor, a private Christian university that was chartered by the Republic of Texas in 1845. It has nearly 4,000 students and awards degrees at the baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral levels. It is affiliated with the Baptist General Convention of Texas.
Dobbins was a three-year starter and two-time all-state selection on the gridiron at BE. He also lettered in track.

Nate Gowan didn’t have much time to celebrate when he was named the first coach of the Philip Simmons High School boys’ lacrosse team last winter.
The Iron Horses were fielding a team for the first time in the school’s brief history, and Gowan was selected to guide the program. He was named head coach on Jan. 20, 2021, and the first practice was held 12 days later.
But he had time to savor the success. The school fielded only a junior varsity team last spring, and the Iron Horses posted a 4-2 record in a season that was shortened by COVID-19.
“They were in the beginning stages down here,” said Gowan, a native of Buffalo, New York, who played lacrosse for Rutgers. “That’s why I came down here. I wanted to create something special, and something that lasts. I received good coaching when I was a player, and good coaching breeds good coaching.”
This spring, the Iron Horses will field their first varsity team and Gowan has much more time to prepare. Although the team is young and isn’t abundantly experienced, Gowan is ready for the challenge and to continue to grow the program.
“It helps to have last year to build off,” Gowan said. “Last year, we built the foundation. We just don’t want to be a varsity team. We want to be a program – and that includes both varsity and junior varsity.”
About 30-40 student-athletes have been working to prepare for the season, and Gowan expects the number to increase once the players who play winter sports join the team.
“A lot of the players who were on the junior varsity team will play on the varsity this year,” said Gowan, who anticipates fielding both JV and varsity squads. “I’m excited about the season, and having the opportunity to turn some heads. People really don’t know much about the team, who we are or what we’re about. We can turn some heads by winning some games.”
While the Philip Simmons program is new, some of the potential stars already have lacrosse experience at the club level. That includes Lucas Mullaney, Jacob Morris and Andrew McQuade, who also shone on the junior varsity team.
Mullaney is a goalkeeper who plays at a high level, and showed improvement every week last year. This spring, he could be one of the top keepers in the Lowcountry.
Gowan describes attacker Morris as the “quarterback” of the team who combines strength and athleticism and converts it into good shots and goals.
McQuade should split time between attack and midfield, a transfer from Bishop England.
The team will open its season Feb. 22 with a home game against Carolina Forest.
“We are excited to start the season,” Gowan said. “We are ready to win some games and turn some heads.

Sydney Severance on a mission to bring an upright MRI to University Hospital
CHARLESTON, S.C. (Jan. 18, 2022) – A generous donor will match up to $600,000 in donations to Operation Upright, a fundraiser started by a Daniel Island teen to bring an upright MRI machine to the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC Health) in Charleston, South Carolina.
In 2020, Sydney Severance went from being an active teenager and competitive tennis player to wheelchair bound. After months of debilitating pain and no answers, Sydney and her family found hope at MUSC Health in Charleston. Sunil Patel, M.D., chair of the Department of Neurosurgery, suspected that Sydney had Ehlers Danlos Syndrome with craniocervical instability (EDS/CCI). Patel explained that the condition is like trying to keep your skull attached to your spine with rubber bands.
Patel recommended Sydney get an upright MRI because traditional MRI studies don’t detect craniocervical instability. There isn’t an upright MRI available in the Charleston area, so the Severance family had to take on the added stress and cost of traveling, which can be extremely painful and beyond reach for many patients.
It often takes years, even decades, before patients receive a diagnosis of EDS/CCI. That’s why it’s so important to Sydney, who’s now in recovery, to bring this advanced diagnostic tool to MUSC in Charleston. “No one should have to settle for just barely surviving,” Sydney said. “Everyone should get a chance to live their life to the fullest.”
Her fundraiser, Operation Upright, has a goal of raising $1.2 million, the estimated cost to buy an upright MRI machine.
“A standup or upright MRI can scan patients in any position, allowing it to detect problems that can’t be seen when a patient is lying down. It’s also significantly more comfortable for patients who may be claustrophobic or overweight,” said Patrick J. Cawley, M.D., MUSC Health CEO and vice president for Health Affairs, University. “Making this advanced technology accessible to our patients is a top priority. We’re grateful to Sydney and the Severance family for helping to make that possible.”
A generous donor has committed to donating $600,000 if Sydney can raise the other half. So far, family and friends have given $187,480 through her fundraising page. To support Sydney and Operation Upright, visit fundraise.musc.edu/operationupright.
Founded in 1824 in Charleston, MUSC is home to the oldest medical school in the South as well as the state’s only integrated academic health sciences center, with a unique charge to serve the state through education, research and patient care. Each year, MUSC educates and trains more than 3,000 students and nearly 800 residents in six colleges: Dental Medicine, Graduate Studies, Health Professions, Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy. MUSC brought in more than $327.6 million in biomedical research funds in fiscal year 2021, continuing to lead the state in obtaining federal and National Institutes of Health funding, with more than $220 million. For information on academic programs, visit musc.edu.
As the clinical health system of the Medical University of South Carolina, MUSC Health is dedicated to delivering the highest-quality and safe patient care while training generations of compassionate, competent health care providers to serve the people of South Carolina and beyond. Patient care is provided at 14 hospitals with approximately 2,500 beds and five additional hospital locations in development, more than 300 telehealth sites and nearly 750 care locations situated in the Lowcountry, Midlands, Pee Dee and Upstate regions of South Carolina. In 2021, for the seventh consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report named MUSC Health the No. 1 hospital in South Carolina. To learn more about clinical patient services, visit muschealth.org.
MUSC and its affiliates have collective annual budgets of $4.4 billion. The nearly 25,000 MUSC team members include world-class faculty, physicians, specialty providers, scientists, students and care team members who deliver groundbreaking education, research, technology and patient care.
