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 Johns 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.

We have decades of experience installing new AC systems for our clients and can handle any installation project you have. As a Carrier® Factory Authorized Dealer, we have the most top-rated AC systems available in South Carolina.

We will work with you directly to find the best fit for your home and budget. We are also happy to answer all of your AC installation questions prior to and during your initial service appointment.
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.

The $75 million in funding that Charleston County Council approved for the Mark Clark extension project last week has the potential to be transformative for Charleston County and Johns Island in three ways, but not in ways council members or residents may think.
First, the project could be financially transformative in the short-term because it could be the largest county financial debacle since the millions “invested” in the former Naval Hospital.
Why? Because council is betting taxpayer money that a slew of low-probability events take place that make this $75 million bet a sure winner.
These events include betting that:
These bets don’t even include the bet that the state Joint Bond Review Committee will shirk its fiduciary responsibility and approve the infrastructure bank’s request for matching funds. This despite Charleston County having no real plan to raise the additional funds needed for the project.
If this low-probability bet is lost, county taxpayers will not only be out $75 million, but they also would have to reimburse the infrastructure bank for 50% of all funds it provided. And we would have lost $75 million that could have been spent on making much-needed improvements to our roads now.
Second, the project could be financially transformative for Charleston County in the long-term since the true cost of the project will likely be much greater than $2.2 billion.
Why? Because of the intergovernmental agreement Charleston County signed with the infrastructure bank and the state Department of Transportation, the county is solely responsible for all additional costs. These costs include any cost overruns and lawsuits; funds for bond servicing; and the cost to upgrade River Road to accommodate the traffic from this project.
These costs could easily add up to an additional several hundred million more dollars. Just imagine how the bond rating agencies will assess the county’s creditworthiness with this unbounded financial obligation.
Third, the project could be transformative to Johns Island because the Lowcountry character of the island would be lost forever.
Why? Because large road projects like these attract large “Anywhere USA” residential developments with their multitude of cars, big box stores and national franchises that push out local businesses. They also dislocate long-time residents. All of this would greatly and adversely impact our quality of life and worsen traffic congestion.
If you need some examples of this, just look to Mount Pleasant and the Cainhoy Peninsula.
Once the Ravenel Bridge was completed, growth in Mount Pleasant exploded. The town is now grappling with its growth and congestion at nearly every Town Council meeting. For example, the town recently announced it will perform an in-depth study to see what can be done to reduce the number of vehicles traveling on roads throughout the town. The study is not about building new roads but managing traffic on existing ones.
Without Interstate 526, the Cainhoy Peninsula was not attractive to developers. Now, there are plans to build 9,000 homes there and to fill vast stretches of wetlands — not to mention the eventual dislocation of long-time residents.
Even without the 9,000 Cainhoy houses, I-526 is currently so congested that the state and federal governments (not Charleston County) are looking to spend billions of dollars to try to relieve this congestion.
This is not the future Johns Islanders want.
There will be those who say that this is a much-needed project. This despite effective lower-cost alternatives that do not alter our island forever.
There will be those who say that residents are overwhelmingly in support of this project. This despite the latest DOT survey showing that fewer than half of them support the project.
There will be those who say that we need a third way on and off the island. This despite, in comparison, that we have only 10% more daily traffic than Hilton Head on our bridges. Yet we have two bridges with eight available lanes, while Hilton Head is about to spend millions to expand its single bridge from four to only six lanes.
Do we need to improve safety and reduce congestion on our roads to improve our quality of life? Yes.
Is betting the county’s short-term and long-term financial future, losing the soul of what makes Johns Island who we are, ignoring effective lower-cost alternatives and ignoring the desires of the majority of the residents the way to do it? No.
So what will happen?
The county could be saved from itself if the Joint Bond Review Committee votes against authorizing the matching funds. Then we can get back to the business of improving safety and reducing congestion on our roads.

The latest threat to the integrity of the Ashley River historic corridor is a new residential development planned in the city of North Charleston that would put dozens of homes on the river side of S.C.

The latest threat to the integrity of the Ashley River historic corridor is a new residential development planned in the city of North Charleston that would put dozens of homes on the river side of S.C. Highway 61. Fortunately, Dorchester County Council has an opportunity to scale back the plan by declining a request to extend water service there, and we urge council members to do just that.
In September, North Charleston approved a preliminary plat subdividing about 34 acres of a larger area known as the Barry tract into 47 single-family lots directly across the street from the Watson Hill development, the quality and appearance of which already has drawn criticism from residents and advocates of the historic, rural area. But that plat is contingent on the availability of water from Dorchester County, as well as approval from the state Department of Health and Environmental Control regarding the location and layout of septic fields.
The proposed development is yet another disturbing example of developers increasingly finding a workaround to a long-time strategy local governments have used to keep rural areas rural: refuse to provide public sewer service. In this case, as we have seen on Johns Island and in Awendaw, the proposed development would be served by individual septic tanks. And the state’s process for reviewing and approving those applications is outdated and flawed.
That’s why we applauded Charleston Waterkeeper and the Coastal Conservation League’s decision to go to court to force DHEC to consider how cumulative septic tank permits can harm water quality and environmental habitats along our coast. Currently, the agency considers them on an individual basis and doesn’t ask whether new residential septic tank permits in our eight coastal counties are consistent with the state’s Coastal Management Program. Unfortunately, that legal question may not be settled in time to affect the Barry tract project. Fortunately, Dorchester County can make the point moot by declining to extend a water line there.
If the water line were extended and all those homes were built with their own septic tanks — and possibly more homes and more septic tanks in future phases — then no one should be surprised if the water quality of this section of the Ashley River starts degrading. No one should be surprised if the Ashley River sees fecal pollution similar to what has been found in James Island and Shem creeks, both of which suffer from aging septic tanks along their banks. (Another weak point in our state’s regulatory approach: Once a septic system is permitted, there are no requirements to inspect or maintain it.)
The Ashley River corridor can be considered as historically significant as Charleston’s downtown historic district. Both were settled in the Carolina colony’s earliest days, and they had a powerful symbiotic relationship, linked by the river itself. But while downtown is protected and preserved largely through the work of a single government, the city of Charleston, there are at least five governments whose decisions will determine how well protected and preserved this corridor’s history, scenery and environmental integrity will be in the years to come.
As Robby Maynor of the Coastal Conservation League notes, all those governments could and should be taking a more coherent, cohesive approach toward development in this sensitive area. “Now we have more competition than collaboration, and the only entity suffering is the integrity of the historic corridor,” he tells us.
That competition has shown itself most clearly in the ongoing legal wrangling over North Charleston’s attempts to annex more of this historic district, a move some fear will hasten its erosion. That concern unfortunately is underscored by the appearance of Watson Hill. We strongly encourage the city of Charleston to ask the S.C. Supreme Court to overturn lower court rulings upholding a controversial annexation by North Charleston almost five years ago.
Until local governments can get on the same page about how best to protect this important and uniquely beautiful place, we are left to root for the ones with the best track record of doing that on their own.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) -Thursday a resolution was filed that could begin an impeachment inquiry after a $3.5 billion accounting.
Representative Gil Gatch (R-Summerville) filed the resolution directing the South Carolina House Judiciary Committee to begin an inquiry into if South Carolina Comptroller General Richard Eckstrom should be impeached.
Eckstrom told the Senate Finance Committee in February that the state’s Annual Comprehensive Financial Reports have overstated how much reserve cash the state had. The error accounted for $3.5 billion over a ten-year period.
After the error was reported, a dozen Democratic state representatives filed a letter requesting an audit and further inquiry into the error.
Rep. Gil Gatch said, “This is a grave miscarriage of the public trust. If there was ever a reason for which the House should act on our authority to impeach, this rises to the top. At the end of the day, this is a $3.5 billion error, and we must hold the responsible parties accountable.”
Co-sponsors on Thursday’s resolution included Rep. Heather Bauer (D-Columbia) and Rep. Matthew Leber (R-John’s Island). Bauer was among the representatives that filed the earlier audit letter.
Bauer said, “I’ve asked for a full audit, and I got a meeting” She continued,“This has happened before, and he was warned. I’m honestly surprised he hasn’t resigned yet. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”
The South Carolina Constitution gives the SC House of Representatives the ability to impeach statewide officials for ‘serious crimes or misconduct in office.’ If the request is approved by two-thirds of the House of Representatives the question of impeachment would head to the South Carolina Senate.
Rep. Gatch said, “South Carolinians deserve better. We must demand transparency and accountability from our elected officials.”

Cushman & Wakefield announced that the commercial real estate services firm arranged the $16.3 million sale of Forest at Fenwick, an 80-unit multifamily property located in Johns Island, South Carolina.
Cushman & Wakefield’s John Phoenix, Richard Gore, and Tyler Fish represented the seller, Southwood Realty/Triangle Real Estate, in the transaction. The multifamily property was acquired in a partnership managed by Rowin Capital and Penny Lane Associates.
“We are pleased to enter the Charleston market with the acquisition of Forest at Fenwick,” said Joe Scherban, Managing Director at Rowin Capital. “Forest at Fenwick is an extremely desirable place to live, located just minutes from downtown Charleston but in the quiet elegance of Johns Island.”
Built in 2005, Forest at Fenwick is located on Johns Island, an area that is walkable to restaurants and grocers on Maybank Highway. Residents enjoy state of the art amenities including a swimming pool with sundeck, poolside gas grill, fire-pit, 24-hour fitness center, coffee bar, and screened-in outdoor lounge.
“Forest at Fenwick provided the Buyer a proven value-add opportunity to capitalize on a well-maintained asset in a thriving Charleston submarket,” said Phoenix, Senior Director at Cushman & Wakefield.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Sunbelt Multifamily Advisory Group is a 109-person investment sales team covering 11 states with No. 1 multifamily market share in that region based on sales volume and transactions reported to CoStar. Per Cushman & Wakefield, in 2022, the group closed $11.1 billion in sales volume through 360 deals and over 60,300 units.
While the two main confidence indexes for multifamily housing increased slightly in the fourth quarter, they both remained in negative territory, according to results from the Multifamily Market Survey (MMS) released by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The MMS produces two separate indices. The Multifamily Production Index (MPI) increased two points to 34 compared to the previous quarter and the Multifamily Occupancy Index (MOI) increased four points to 49.
The MPI measures builder and developer sentiment about current production conditions in the apartment and condo market on a scale of 0 to 100. The index and all of its components are scaled so that a number below 50 indicates that more respondents report conditions are getting worse than report conditions are improving.
The MPI is a weighted average of three key elements of the multifamily housing market: construction of low-rent units-apartments that are supported by low-income tax credits or other government subsidy programs; market-rate rental units-apartments that are built to be rented at the price the market will hold; and for-sale units—condominiums. The component measuring low-rent units increased five points to 41, the component measuring market rate apartments dropped one point to 38 and the component measuring for-sale units remained even at 23.
The MOI measures the multifamily housing industry’s perception of occupancies in existing apartments. It is a weighted average of current occupancy indexes for class A, B, and C multifamily units, and can vary from 0 to 100, with a break-even point at 50, where lower numbers indicate decreased occupancy. The MOI increased four points to 49, indicating that the market is close to being stable.
“Many developers continue to see strong demand for multifamily housing, but in some markets supply is catching up to demand,” said Lance Swank, president and co-owner of Sterling Group, Inc. in Mishawaka, Ind., and chairman of NAHB’s Multifamily Council. “In most markets, developers face challenges with regulatory costs and delays, and obtaining financing for new construction.”
“It is appropriate that multifamily developers are expressing some caution and that the MPI remains below 50, given the way starts have been outpacing completions,” said NAHB Chief Economist Robert Dietz. “This is also consistent with NAHB’s forecast that multifamily production will slow measurably from the very strong rates it sustained through most of 2022.”
