Air Conditioning Repair in Ladson, 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 Ladson, 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

Ladson 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 Ladson, 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.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Google is taking notice of a Lowcountry business. The tech giant chose a Ladson company to be part of a new mentoring program, designed to help startups around the nation grow their business.

This partnership all started because of a gallon of milk.

Marlon Brown is busy as he’s a working husband, father and grandfather. So it is not uncommon that he forgot his wife had asked him to pick up a gallon of milk one day after work.

But being a software engineer, his solution was anything but common.

“So, I get in the house and I say,’ You know what? I’m just going to write you an application to where you can attach the message you want to send me to the Walmart I’m going to pass on my way home and then when I pass the Walmart, then I’ll get the message,’” Brown said.

When Brown told his cousin Kendrick Pullen, who lives in Florida, about the app he had created the two formed a business partnership and Lifetagger was born.

“Now Lifetagger allows you to attach content into any signal your phone can detect,” Brown said. “Whether it’s wifi, geolocation, whether it’s beacons. We even do QR codes now so we’re about delivering content when and where it matters.”

The app also works by using sound.

“So Lifetagger can work like Shazam, we can listen to the room for a few seconds, tell what song is on, tell what movie’s playing, and so you can get content when you’re near an audio signal,” Brown said.

Their business pitch had already gained them some clients, but in looking for ways to grow their clientele, Pullen applied for the Google for Startups Founders Academy in January.

Just 50 companies from around the nation would be chosen to take part in the new mentoring program in March. Lifetagger is the only business from South Carolina.

“Me as the product guy, I’m a software engineer by trade so I write the code,” Brown said. “I’m getting enlightened about the sales and stuff. It’s an interesting journey.”

The six month program focuses on sales, marketing and funding and will wrap up in September.

Brown says one of the core values of Lifetagger is “try stuff.”

He says if you have an idea, don’t just let it be an idea, put it into action.

Walmart’s giant distribution center in Spartanburg a sign of the times

Among the many things the pandemic has brought into sharp focus is the rising demand for online shopping and the logistical challenges posed by that demand. This is the backdrop against which Walmart announced in October plans to build a $450 million, 720-000-square-foot grocery distribution facility in Spartanburg County.According to the company’s ...

Among the many things the pandemic has brought into sharp focus is the rising demand for online shopping and the logistical challenges posed by that demand. This is the backdrop against which Walmart announced in October plans to build a $450 million, 720-000-square-foot grocery distribution facility in Spartanburg County.

According to the company’s third-quarter earnings report released in November, ecommerce sales increased 8% in the quarter and showed strong growth in grocery sales.

In announcing the new facility in Spartanburg County, the company said the highly-automated distribution center will handle increased demand in fresh and frozen foods among the company’s 122 South Carolina retail stores.

“The world has changed…I think we’ve learned from the pandemic you can’t be offshore.” — David Britt, Spartanburg

According to Taylor Jackson, director of SC Logistics for the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness, the Walmart move is part of a growing trend where companies are locating distribution and logistics hubs closer to the markets they serve.

Jackson also says the high level of automation the company plans to use at the facility is part of a broader trend nationally and, instead of killing jobs, actually represents opportunities for more skilled workers.

“I think this is a trend that will continue to grow,” Jackson says. “I believe South Carolina is in great position to take advantage of this trend.”

Spartanburg County councilman David Britt agrees.

Britt sees the 400 new jobs expected to come with the distribution center as among the reasons so many people are moving to the Upstate.

As one of his county’s main economic development recruiters, Britt says he has delivered the message to prospective companies that if they build in the Upstate, the area will supply the skilled workforce needed.

He adds that market shifts accelerated with the pandemic and drove home the critical importance of location and logistics.

“The pandemic changed the game forever, not only from the logistics end in manufacturing,” Britt says. “That’s why you’re seeing such a move to the Carolinas — because of the area’s logistical strengths.”

With the Upstate being within a two-day drive of 75% of the country’s population and having such key transportation infrastructure like Inland Port Greer, it makes sense for companies like Walmart and Amazon to increase the number of distribution centers in the area, says Britt.

The new Spartanburg County facility will be Walmart’s fifth distribution center in the Palmetto State. Amazon currently has three distribution/sorting centers in the state centered near population hubs: in Spartanburg, West Columbia and Ladson, near Charleston.

Britt adds that more companies equal more jobs, and more jobs attract more people. More people buy more products. It becomes something of a self-sustaining cycle.

“That’s why Walmart’s doing what they’re doing,” he says.

Here's where Clemson transfer players have landed as Minnesota adds a former Tiger

Minnesota football will try to plug in one Clemson transfer to replace another on the defensive line.

Darnell Jefferies, a junior with two years of eligibility remaining, announced Monday on social media that he would play for the Golden Gophers next season.

“I am blessed and excited to announce that I will be committing to the University of Minnesota,” Jefferies posted on Twitter just one week after officially entering the transfer portal.

If he is able to reach success anywhere near that of former Clemson player Nyles Pinckney with the Golden Gophers, they will have successfully filled a need again. Pinckney transferred to Minnesota as a graduate student at this time last year and became a key piece of a strong defense and a nine-win team.

Pinckney started all 13 games for Minnesota (9-3), which went 6-3 in the Big Ten and smothered West Virginia, 18-6, in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl in Phoenix. He finished with 29 tackles, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble. The Gophers ranked second among Big Ten teams in scoring defense and total defense.

Jefferies appeared in 15 games (118 snaps) as a redshirt freshman in 2019 but his playing time dwindled recently. He had 17 snaps in this season’s opener against Georgia and the following week against South Carolina State but had just seven snaps the rest of the season and one game on special teams.

Some Clemson transfer players still seeking a home

Of the 11 players who left Clemson during the season, all but quarterback Taisun Phommachanh and tight end Jaelyn Lay have found new homes. Lay and Jefferies announced their departures following the Tigers’ Cheez-It Bowl victory against Iowa State in Orlando, Florida. They followed Phommachanh and wide receiver Frank Ladson leaving after the regular season. Ladson has committed to Miami.

Three players are headed to South Florida, coached by former Clemson co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott, who has been in Tampa for two years. Scott has welcomed wide receiver Ajou Ajou, running back Michel Dukes and safety Ray Thornton. Ajou had six catches in 12 games, Dukes just two carries in one game and Thornton got 74 snaps in 12 games while also being a key contributor on special teams.

Running back Lyn-J Dixon, who was expected to be the starter to replace Travis Etienne this season, quit the team after only three games and has committed to West Virginia. He rushed for 1,420 yards with 13 touchdowns at Clemson and his per-carry career average of 6.5 yards is behind only Etienne in program history (minimum 1,000 yards).

Offensive lineman Paul Tchio is headed for Georgia Tech, safety Joseph Charleston to Missouri and linebacker Kane Patterson is enrolled at Vanderbilt.

Among the players who had the most success after transferring from Clemson following the 2020 season were cornerback Derion Kendrick and running back Chez Mellusi. Kendrick a key starter for Georgia in Monday night’s national championship game and was defensive MVP in the Orange Bowl semifinals victory against Michigan. Mellusi led Wisconsin with 815 yards (4.7 per carry) and five touchdowns before suffering a season-ending injury in November. Defensive lineman Jordan Williams started for Virginia Tech but opted out of its bowl game to prepare for the NFL draft.

Todd Shanesy is a 30-year veteran of the Spartanburg Herald-Journal now focusing on Clemson athletics for the USA TODAY network.

Coastal Carolina Fair returns for 64th year this October

LADSON, S.C. (WCBD) – The Coastal Carolina Fair promises a return to food, fun and thrills when it kicks off at the Ladson fairgrounds in late October.

The fair, which is typically held in the fall each year, was canceled in 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic. Organizers last summer announced they made the difficult decision out of “extreme caution for the health and safety of the community, volunteers, and staff members” as cases of the virus were on the rise.

“The Coastal Carolina Fair is a world-class fair. It’s got one of the biggest mobile midways in America and we just could not produce that fair and be safe for the public and the workers, bottom line, that’s what happened,” said Glenn McConnell, President of the Coastal Carolina Fair, in June 2020.

Many of the annual events people across the Lowcountry love are back on this year, and that includes the Coastal Carolina Fair when it returns for its 64th year beginning October 28th through November 7th.

The Exchange Club of Charleston, which hosts the fair, said proceeds from the annual event are given back to the community through service grants. More than $500,000 was donated to over 60 local non-profit organizations and individuals following the 2019 fair.

Guests can enjoy plenty of delicious – and often interesting – food from dozens of vendors, exciting games and rides, and myriad creative arts, music, and animal exhibits.

A number of COVID-19 safety precautions will be implemented for the fair such as plastic shields and barriers, cashless payment options, and increased hand sanitizer stations. They also hope to add more kiosks at the fair which will help you complete online transactions.

You are also recommended to purchase your tickets ahead of time. Tickets will go on sale October 1st; we’re told you can buy them in advance online or at Circle K locations which will save both money and time, especially if you purchase them before the first day of the fair.

Live entertainment has not yet been announced for this year’s fair. Fair organizers say entertainment will not be announced before October 1st – that is the date tickets go on sale.
