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 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.

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.

Burning Odors

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.

Common Signs That You Need a New AC Install in James Island, 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.

 HVAC Repair James Island, SC

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

James Island 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 James Island, 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.

 Heating And AC Services James Island, SC
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.

Lucy Beckham makes most of Charleston County Football Jamboree experience

Next week can’t get here fast enough for Lucy Beckham senior wide receiver AJ Kut.

When the Bengals take the field on Aug. 19 against Lake Marion High School, it will mark the first official varsity football game for Mount Pleasant’s Lucy Beckham High School.

The Bengals’ game next week has been two years in the making.

Lucy Beckham looked like a veteran unit in their final dress rehearsal Aug. 12 as the Bengals thrashed Burke 27-0 in the inaugural CCSD Football Jamboree at District 2 Stadium on the campus of Wando High School.

“I can’t wait, I know next week is just going to drag on, I think everyone is excited to finally play that first game,” said Kut, who scored the first touchdown of the night on a 10-yard run. “We’ve been waiting for this day for two years. It’s what we’ve been building for the last two years.”

Lucy Beckham fielded a junior varsity team in its first two years of existence, starting play in 2020.

Last season, due to cancellations of games because of the COVID-19 virus, the Bengals were able to gain special permission to play three games against varsity competition, losing contests to Bamberg-Ehrhardt, Loris and Bishop England.

This fall, however, will be the first full varsity schedule with the first group of nearly two dozen seniors head coach Jamel Smith brought together as sophomores more than two years ago.

“This is what we’ve prepared this football team for, for the past two years,” Smith said. “To get out here, get some of the jitters out and face our first varsity team in our first full season and executing like we did was great. The thing we’re working on most, is finishing. Finishing plays, finishing quarters and finishing games. I thought we did a great job of that offensively and defensively, but we’re still a work in progress.”

The Bengals will compete as a Class AAAA program this fall, taking on more established teams like May River, James Island and Hilton Head in Region 7-AAAA.

“We’ve improved so much since the beginning of practice, I think we’re going to surprise a lot of people,” Kut said. “We had been struggling a little bit offensively, but we put together some good drives tonight.”

Robert Meyers, Tyler Kinloch and Drake Bull all scored TDs for the Bengals during the 20-minute halves.

In other jamboree action, North Charleston defeated Academic Magnet 8-0; West Ashley beat St. John’s 7-0; Stall edged Military Magnet 6-0; Bishop England held on for a 2-0 victory over Baptist Hill; James Island blanked Wando, 7-0, in the final game of the night.

For nearly five decades, the Lowcountry high school football season had kicked off with the Sertoma Classic at The Citadel’s Johnson Hagood Stadium.

Since 2018, Charleston County schools were without a season-opening jamboree. The Charleston County school district attempted to put together its first event last season, but COVID-19 issues forced several schools to drop out prior to the event.

The hope is that the 2022 season will be the first “normal” regular season since 2019.

“Everything has been proceeding as normal and hopefully it will continue that way,” said Bishop England coach John Cantey. “Aside from the supply side issues with having a hard time getting helmets and getting game uniforms, everything has been normal and it’s great to get back to a normal situation.”

Cantey said the return of a preseason jamboree has only solidified that feeling of normalcy.

“Having everyone get together at a jamboree like this you kind feel like it’s going to be OK,” Cantey said. “You are not worried about what kind of mask you have to wear and there are no temperature tests like we’ve had to do for the last two years. It’s a huge relief, we can just concentrate on football.”

Biden’s $20 million South Carolina retreat plagued by mold, termites: report

The sprawling, $20 million mansion on Kiawah Island in South Carolina — where President Biden and his family are staying free of charge — has been plagued for years by a laundry list of problems, including mold, mildew, termites and cracks, according to a new report.

The Post reported last week that the Bidens, including disgraced first son Hunter, are spending their summer vacation at the beachfront property owned by big-time Democratic donor Maria Allwin — the widow of hedge fund founder James Allwin.

“They stayed here before and they’re not paying,” a source close to Allwin said. “They’ve never paid. They’re just friends.”

The Daily Mail reported on Monday, citing court documents, that behind its seemingly pristine façade, the nine-bedroom estate that has hosted the Bidens on and off since 2009 has become something of a money pit and the subject of several rounds of litigation.

A 2019 appeals court ruling in Allwin’s lawsuit against the builders of her home described the many issues that have bedeviled the luxury property over the years, including mold and mildew, multiple cracks, peeling wallpaper and damaged drywall, leaks, warped hardwood flooring and termites.

According to the lawsuit, Allwin first became aware of the problems back in 1999 — just five years after construction on her mansion was finished.

A contractor that Allwin hired to assess the condition of the property told her in 2004 that the roof was “so poorly installed, the only way to properly repair the roof is to replace it” to the tune of more than $500,000, according to the document.

Allwin balked at the high price tag but proceeded to pour hundreds of thousands of dollars into an array of home repairs over the next several years. She ultimately sued the company that built her home, Russ Cooper Associates, in 2013, but lost at trial because she waited too long to file the complaint and the statute of limitations had run out. She appealed the ruling, but the appeals court rejected her claim on the same grounds.

Allwin’s house problems did not scare away the Bidens, who stayed there in August 2009, April 2012, April 2014, June 2015 and August 2015, according to records obtained by the outlet from Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop as well as records from Biden’s time as President Barack Obama’s vice president.

A rep for the Allwin family told The Post on Monday, “Any issues with the house have long been resolved.”

Allwin has known Joe and Jill Biden socially for more than a decade, a source told The Post last week, adding that they do not have any joint business dealings.

Ahead of the 2020 election, Allwin sent a $35,000 check to the Biden Victory Fund and the Democratic National Committee, according to Federal Election Commission records.

She has contributed generously to a variety of mostly Democratic political campaigns, but her most recent donations were to Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and a PAC supporting her effort to beat back a primary challenge by Donald Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman

Allwin family’s firm, Aetos Capital, is currently run by Maria’s son, Chris, and manages $11.31 billion worth of assets.

Troubling TikTok challenges inspire new, digital hall pass system

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - To fight back on an uptick in illicit behavior inspired by the social media platform TikTok, a Charleston County school is taking the traditional hall pass digital.Through an application called SmartPass, students at James Island Charter High School can request permission to leave the classroom for things like going to the restroom or stopping by their lockers.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - To fight back on an uptick in illicit behavior inspired by the social media platform TikTok, a Charleston County school is taking the traditional hall pass digital.

Through an application called SmartPass, students at James Island Charter High School can request permission to leave the classroom for things like going to the restroom or stopping by their lockers. The app is downloaded to each school-issued laptop but can also be downloaded to a cell phone as well.

“We have had people, unfortunately, try to sneak into our school and they’re not supposed to be here. Now, at any given moment, we know there should be, say, seven people in the hallway and who they are,” Principal Timothy Thorn said. “It has a lot of safety components that allows us to keep our buildings safer.”

While the app does not track movements, all active passes are monitored on a screen by the principal, student concern specialists or the school resource officer. When students are issued a pass, they’re given a time limit before they’re supposed to return. When they run out of time the pass turns red on the screen and school officials can then follow up as needed.

Thorn says this system is new for them this year and is a direct response to some of the issues exposed last year.

“Last year, there was a TikTok challenge that a lot of schools went through. Kids would text each other to leave class. They’d meet up and then they’d go around the building and film themselves doing various things. The TikTok challenge was vandalism and stealing things from school,” Thorn said. “We are trying to cut back on the vandalism in our school, the sinks being ripped off the wall. . . it’s not a new problem but it definitely escalated in the last couple years.”

The time allowed for each hall pass is adjustable. For now, Thorne says bathroom breaks are generally given five minutes, while trips to the water fountain could be three minutes. Students start with five bathroom passes a day, but Thorn says they’re still figuring out what works best and teachers have the authority to override daily limits.

The app also has a feature that can control which students can have hall passes at the same time. Thorn says this feature allows them to crack down on significant others who might want to meet up in the middle of class or prevent groups of students known to abuse bathroom privileges from all being allowed to leave the classroom at the same time.

Thorn says the feature helps them keep students safe who are being bullied.

“It’s really about the bullying, harassment and safety contracts,” Thorn said. “If we can say student A, B and C can’t be out with student D to make sure it [bullying] doesn’t go on, that’s a tremendous way to keep kids safe. We have had to have adults follow students around just to get through some of these school harassment issues.”

You can learn more about the app, how it works and some of the reviews at its website.

Charleston, SC - The Charleston Baseball Hall of Fame has announced the inductees for the Class of 2022, naming players Brett Spivey and Rodney Hancock and Coach Timmy Linker, to the 19th Baseball Hall of Fame class.

Spivey and Hancock were both selected by local fans voting; Linker was a special pick from the Advisory Committee.

The Charleston Baseball Hall of Fame is coordinated and operated by the Charleston RiverDogs. An advisory committee consisting of knowledgeable local volunteers was created to come up with the names as potential nominees. The Hall of Fame is located inside Riley Park.

Information about each of the inductees is below:

Rodney Hancock (Player): A Lowcountry native, Rodney Hancock starred at Stratford High, having been named the school’s Athlete of the Year, twice All-Lowcountry, All-Region and All-State during his career. He hit .437 and posted a 0.80 ERA on the mound, including a pair of no-hitters. The 1996 4A State Player of the Year led the Knights to the state championship and was later named the North-South Game MVP. Hancock was named the 1997 Southern Conference Freshman of the Year while at The Citadel where he hit .365 with six homers and 49 RBI. He earned Freshman All-American honors by two prominent publications. Coached by Fred Jordan, he was a member of the 1999 regular-season championship team in addition to two SoCon Tournament title squads that also participated in a pair of NCAA Regionals. He was the 1999 SoCon Tournament MVP and a two-time SoCon and College Baseball Player of the Week. Hancock fired a no-hitter with 14 strikeouts against Furman on May 14 and five days later fanned 20 against the Paladins in the SoCon Tournament. Hancock was selected in the 29th round by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2000 and was enshrined in The Citadel Athletic Hall of Fame in 2014.

Brett Spivey (Player): Spivey is a James Island and College of Charleston product who started every high school game since his freshman year. He was a two-time All-Region selection who helped the Trojans to three state finals appearances (1996, ‘97 and ‘99). He batted .398 as a junior and .580 as a senior with a state-high 69 hits as he finished his high school career as the school’s all-time leader in hits (224) and walks (125). He was named All-State, All-Region and All-Lowcountry, named the Region Player of the Year and the 4A State Player of the Year. At the College of Charleston, he played in 216 career games and hit .328 with 19 home runs, 144 RBI, 184 runs and 60 stolen bases, 43 doubles and 11 triples. His .423 batting average in 2002 ranked 15th nationally (also 3rd all-time at CofC). He was named first-team All-Southern Conference in 2002, second team in 2003 and named to the All-Atlantic Region second team by the American Baseball Coaches Association in ‘02. He began his professional career by signing a free agent contract with the Colorado Rockies and played two seasons in the Northwestern League.

Timmy Linker (Coach) (Deceased): Timmy was a volunteer coach at St. Andrews Parks and Playground for over 40 years, as well as working with both St. Andrew’s High School and the current West Ashley High School. He began as a volunteer T-ball coach in 1969 and has twice been named the St. Andrew’s Parks Volunteer of the Year. He held many roles at each – Athletic Director, Scorekeeper, Announcer, Umpire/Referee - and loved every minute of his time on the field/court. Over the years, the youth he had the pleasure to coach have become coaches themselves, quoting Timmy as their inspiration. In 2007, St. Andrews Parks and Playground Commission inducted him into their Hall of Fame and in 2022 officially named the Brinker Field press box after Timmy at their main complex on Playground Road.
