South Carolina is one of the most beautiful places in the United States to call home. However, our local weather can be extreme - high temps and thick humidity in the summer and chilly winter weather during cold months.

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. 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.

Photos provided - South Carolina Adopt-a-Stream volunteers discuss water quality at a free training workshop. Volunteers must first become certified, during which they learn how to measure water quality and what behaviors and land-use changes can impact waterway health.
The South Carolina Adopt-a-Stream, a volunteer program for monitoring water quality, is celebrating five years of protecting waterways across the state and is actively seeking more local volunteers who understand the importance of healthy watersheds.
First launched in South Carolina in 2017, the South Carolina Adopt-a-Stream program (SC AAS) is managed by a partnership between the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and the Clemson University Center for Watershed Excellence (CU CWE).
To date, SC AAS volunteers have conducted more than 3,000 sampling events at streams around the state. That water sample data provides key information about stream conditions and helps guide volunteers, educators, conservation groups, and local governments on how they can partner together to protect and restore polluted waterways. The data volunteers collect are available to the public without any required log in through the SC AAS database.
“Our state’s SC Adopt-a-Stream volunteers are at the heart of this program and are what make it such a success,” said Sierra Hylton, DHEC’s SC Adopt-a-Stream Program Coordinator. “Through free trainings and workshops, our volunteers learn how to collect samples and understand water quality data. Our volunteer data provides impressive quantitative results that help create partnerships at the local level for protecting and restoring waterways. In turn, our volunteers become conservation advocates within their communities.”
Data collected by SC AAS volunteers have helped identify broken sewer pipes, broken water lines, and sedimentation issues. Detecting these problems early on helps local governments and other entities save time, resources and money to fix the issues at their source before their impacts become widespread or costly.
“Community science is changing the way we manage our natural resources worldwide and how we engage our public in their smart management,” said Katie Callahan, director of Clemson University’s Center for Watershed Excellence. "More eyes and ears outside can share powerful observations that through programs like SC Adopt-a-Stream, activate local authorities when the threat of pollution is observed. Free trainings and a less complicated database of results and photos democratizes environmental health data and encourages more broad participation in the decisions that affect our communities. We at the Center are grateful to be a player in such a powerful program for our state and waterways,”
Some recent SC AAS successes include:
SC AAS volunteers have been recognized by Gov. Henry McMaster, mayors, county councils, public water utilities, conservation groups, local businesses, and many others for their efforts to study, advocate for, and protect South Carolina’s irreplaceable waterways.
Both DHEC and the CU CWE encourage anyone with an interest in SC AAS to learn more. There are various ways to volunteer and support this water monitoring program in your community.
Information about how to become a volunteer, where and when training workshops take place, and additional information is available at scadoptastream.org or by contacting Sierra Hylton at email@example.com or Emily Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If practice makes perfect, then the Bishop England High School boys’ volleyball team should be in good shape this fall after going 3-0 in scrimmages in preparation for the regular season.
Bishop England and Philip Simmons, along with about 40 schools in the Palmetto State, will field boys’ teams this fall as the High School League finally sanctioned the sport in time for the 2022-23 academic year.
“It’s so new, we’re still learning so much,” said Bishop England coach Alec Swanson, whose team was scheduled to open the regular season Aug. 31 against Wando. “You can look at wins and losses to measure success, but I’m looking for understanding. The players need to understand the game. Some of the players’ only experience with volleyball was phys ed. Now, they have to understand how the game is played. And, they have to learn every single rule.
“Some of our players are new to the sport, so they still have so much to learn,” Swanson said. “We just need to have our players improve every time out, and step up when it comes time to play a game.”
Swanson, obviously, did not play volleyball at Bishop England. But that didn’t stop him from enjoying the sport. He could be found playing beach volleyball at The Windjammer and traveled around the South playing club volleyball.
Boys’ volleyball will have a different vibe than their girl counterparts with the net almost a foot higher. Players are taller, which means more traffic around the net and more power on serves and spikes.
Excitement was high at Bishop England as 30 boys tried out for the team.
“We only have a varsity team, so we did have to cut some players,” Swanson said. “Everyone has a reason to play. Some of our players wanted to try out because their sisters play volleyball.”
At Philip Simmons, coach Amanda Newell has been stressing fundamentals and team chemistry.
Newell played volleyball at Buford High School and followed that up with an impressive career at Wofford. Her coaching experience includes a stint at The Citadel.
“It’s crazy to see how quickly the team has improved,” said Newell, whose team also opened the season Aug. 31 against Cane Bay. “You can put them on the court, and they will show improvement in 10 minutes. We are coming together as a team. We’re improving our skills and developing as a team.”
Newell wants to develop a team that wins. But winning isn’t the only objective on the agenda.
“I want the players to have fun, enjoy the sport and spread the word at school,” Newell said.
According to the Palmetto Volleyball Association, boys’ volleyball is the fastest growing sport in the U.S. South Carolina boys’ volleyball began in 2019 with 14 teams. However, COVID-19 canceled the 2020 club season although 39 schools offered boys’ volleyball as a club sport. That number dropped to 21 teams because of the pandemic, but has rebounded to about 40 teams.
While the S.C. High School League sanctioned the sport, there will be no playoffs this fall which means there will be no state champion crowned.

Oak Hills Country Club, in San Antonio, Texas, has been chosen as the host site for the 2024 U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship and 2028 U.S. Senior Amateur Championship. The U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball will be contested from May 11-15, 2024, and the U.S. Senior Amateur will take place from Aug. 26-31, 2028.
“The USGA is thrilled to make our return to Oak Hills Country Club in both 2024 and 2028,” said Mark Hill, USGA senior managing director, Championships. “We know the course will be a true test for the best amateur golfers in the world. This will absolutely be showcased during the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball and the U.S. Senior Amateur.”
Oak Hills Country Club is one of the oldest private member-owned country clubs in the country. Originally founded in 1922 as the Alamo Country Club, Oak Hills was designed by premier architect A.W. Tillinghast, whose vision of beauty and challenging play is enjoyed by golfers of all abilities. Alamo Country Club ceased operations during World War II and the course reopened as Oak Hills Country Club in 1946.
“The Oak Hills membership and the larger community of San Antonio are looking forward to welcoming both the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball and U.S. Senior Amateur to our club,” said Cary Collins, director of golf at Oak Hills Country Club. “We look forward to hosting tremendous amateur golfers and having the opportunity to share our golf course on a national stage. It’s an incredible opportunity for all of us at the club and we are looking forward to working with the USGA closely over the next several years.”
Oak Hills previously hosted the 2001 U.S. Junior Amateur Championship, when Henry Liaw defeated Richard Scott, 2 and 1, in the final match. The club has also hosted 24 Texas Open Championships won by several legends of the game, including Arnold Palmer, Hale Irwin and Lee Trevino. The PGA Tour Champions’ AT&T Championship was also hosted at the club from 2002-2010, with Craig Stadler, Jay Haas, Fred Funk and John Cook among those to hoist the trophy. Oak Hills also hosted the 1987 debut of the Tour Championship, which was then known as the Nabisco Championship and was won by Tom Watson.
The U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball is open to female amateur golfers of all ages. Each member of the side must have a USGA Handicap Index® of 14.4 or lower. The 2023 championship will be held at The Home Course in DuPont, Wash., from May 13-17. Additional future sites include Daniel Island Club in Charleston, S.C., from May 2-6, 2026, and Bandon Dunes (Ore.) Golf Resort in 2037.
In April, Georgia residents Thienna Huynh and Sara Im outlasted Kaitlyn Schroeder and Bailey Shoemaker, 1 up, at Grand Reserve Golf Club in Puerto Rico to win the 7th U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship. This installment of the championship made history as the first USGA championship to be contested outside the mainland in a U.S. territory.
The U.S. Senior Amateur is open to any golfer who is 55 years of age or older and whose Handicap Index does not exceed 7.4. The 2022 championship is currently taking place at The Kittansett Club in Marion, Mass., through Sept. 1, while Martis Camp Club in Truckee, Calif. will host the 2023 edition from Aug. 26-31. The Honors Course in Ooltewah, Tenn., will host the 2024 championship from Aug. 24-29 and Biltmore Forest Country Club in Asheville, N.C., will host in 2025.

Cobb, who raised her family on Daniel Island and now lives on the Cainhoy peninsula, reveals the “superpowers” of these dogs, the range of services they provide, the breeds that seem admirably suited for such duties, and a variety of organizations that have been established to train such dogs and match them with humans.
“The Woman Underwater” by Penny Goetjen
National award-winning mystery and suspense novelist Penny Goetjen, who lives part of the year on Daniel Island, will present her recently released sixth novel, “The Woman Underwater.”
Having grown up exposed to and with a fascination of ghosts and hauntings, Penny weaves a subtle paranormal thread into her novels. Her new book is a gripping mystery about the 7-year-old disappearance of a boarding school husband and teacher and the impact it has on his wife and son. It is full of engaging characters and unexpected twists and turns – and a hint of the paranormal.
