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.

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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston, 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

North Charleston 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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston, 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.

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - As families begin to gather around the Thanksgiving table, a local chef helped feed dozens of the less fortunate in North Charleston, turning the holiday into a day of service.

Chef Chantel Jenkins, the owner of Flavor Chanico, lent her talents feed and clothe the less fortunate at the Liberty Mall parking lot off Rivers Avenue on Thanksgiving.

“I wanted to give thanks. Why not on this day?” she said.

Jenkins, a lifelong chef, said she has always wanted to help the less fortunate since she was young.

“You know, it just filled my heart to see people on the street and see that they had less than me,” Jenkins said. “I would cry. If my parents was driving, and I was in the car seat, I would cry. Like, ‘We gotta turn around and give them some food, give them some clothes.’”

Jenkins said she had enough food at the Thursday morning giveaway to serve over 100 people. She served a variety of entrees, like Salisbury steak, and sides like white rice and green beans.

She arrived just before 8 a.m. and started serving around 9 a.m. The giveaway ran until 12 p.m.

“I don’t care how they got where they at,” Jenkins said. “That’s not of my business, but what I can control is what I can do for them, which is feed them, help them with a coat or help them with a blanket.”

People who were fed say they’re grateful Jenkins donated her time and effort to help them out.

“That’s how God want her to do it – give back what she receives – and God will favor her, her business and God will favor her in every area in her life,” food recipient Arthur Lee Rock said.

Jenkins said these giveaways are also part of a promise she made her to mother before she passed away in 2020.

“I always told her, ‘Once I get a food trailer, I’m going to go out and feed the less fortunate,’ because I had a big heart for them,” she said. “When I was younger, I would see them on the street, and I know they had less than me. I didn’t understand it then, but I understood it now as an adult. I was like, ‘Once I get older, I’ll go out and feed them as much as I can,’ so I just wanted to give back to them, make sure they had a hot meal.”

“She was a God-fearing woman, so she would probably be shouting and jumping for joy,” Jenkins said about her mother. “She would be out here serving, as well, and you know loving on people.”

Jenkins said her brother purchased the clothing and shoes to give away to the less fortunate, and that giveaways like this are usually done out-of-pocket.

Roper Hospital Medical Campus coming to North Charleston

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – One of the Lowcountry’s leading hospitals is set to construct a new medical campus in the heart of North Charleston.

Roper St. Francis Healthcare announced Wednesday it will invest $1 billion to build a new Roper Hospital Medical Campus at the site of the former North Charleston City Hall off Mall Drive.

The campus will occupy 27 acres near I-26 and I-526 which leaders say will make the hospital and its services easily accessible for patients who live in Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties.

Roper announced in November 2021 that it planned to move off the Charleston peninsula, a move they said would allow patients to “easily access care closer to where they live and work.”

North Charleston’s Finance Committee voted in favor of selling the former city hall building to Roper Hospital on Tuesday evening. City Council then approved the sale in a brief meeting afterward.

“It was a deal we are all proud of. The hospital is something we need. It’s going to bring thousands of jobs. They’re moving the whole campus to North Charleston and that’s a good thing,” said Mayor Pro Tem and City Councilman Jerome Heyward.

“This new medical campus will be a paradigm for providing healthcare, whether that’s complex surgeries in a hospital or an annual checkup in an outpatient office,” said Dr. Jeffrey DiLisi, president and chief executive officer of Roper St. Francis Healthcare. “We made the bold decision one year ago to move Roper Hospital, and I’m grateful to our North Charleston partners for breathing life into this dream. This new campus will ensure our ability to continue delivering the quality care that’s been the hallmark of our brand for generations.”

Roper’s leaders say the new medical campus is expected to include a full-service acute care hospital with a 24-hour Emergency Room. It will also have a medical office building where myriad outpatient and specialty care will be offered.

“We welcome Roper St. Francis Healthcare to the North Charleston hub of economic development,” said North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey. “The new Roper Hospital Medical Campus is the next exciting chapter of this healthcare system’s 167-year legacy, and I am honored that the third largest city in South Carolina can host this tremendous benefit for our citizens.”

The new campus will be the fourth location for Roper Hospital since it opened downtown in 1856. Leaders say it will be technologically and structurally upgraded to better withstand natural disasters, such as floods, hurricanes and earthquakes.

Construction is likely to take up to five years. Important services will continue to be offered on the peninsula to “remain convenient to those in need downtown.”

Black Friday brings shoppers together in the Lowcountry

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Black Friday is always a hit across America for shoppers ahead of the holiday season, and Friday was no different in the Lowcountry.

Lines began as early as 4 a.m. at Tanger Outlets in North Charleston with shoppers searching and hoping to find the best deals possible.

Jaime Morris, Tanger Outlets General Manager, shared that it was an early morning for the retail stores, but business was very steady throughout the day.

“We just know that we’re seeing a lot of shoppers in the center. Our parking lots have been nice and full with people coming and going throughout the day,” Morris said. “We just know that it’s been really strong for retailers and we’re seeing a lot of folks out and ready to be festive.”

She also added that people remained consistent and respectful while shopping. All stores remained busy, but Bath & Body works, Nike and Under Armor saw constant lines outside their doors.

A Veteran, Danyell Lynn, has been traveling to these outlets all the way from Charlotte for the past five years for the great deals, customer service, and the Veteran discount.

“You know, you can get a $685 purse from Michael Kors for $120. That’s a deal,” Lynn said. “I don’t know why you would want to wait and come down here another day. Get all you can get now, you’re your money, and spend it where there is Veterans support.”

Stores prepared their employees for different situations and the craziness that is Black Friday. Sunglass Hut employee, Shaniyah Williams, said that she had to learn patience ahead of Friday.

“Before coming in today, we were told to do what you always do and to be yourself. but then also at the same time, just make sure that you’re interacting with the customers,” Williams said.

Eight-year-old and 6-year-old sisters, Aria and Cali Smith, were excited to shop for their favorite toys ahead of the holiday season.

“I like to shop because I can get new things for different purposes,” Aria said. “I like to shop because I can spend time with my family,” Cali said.

Tanger Outlets will remain open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“We are just so happy that we’re a part of this community. To see families out here taking selfies at the tree and you know, excited to see the deals,” Morris said. “We were ready for crowds and that delivered. We’ve been very, very happy.”

Seacoast Dream Center serves 3k meals for 13th annual turkey distribution

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful, and the community at Seacoast Dream Center wanted to show their appreciation for the people of North Charleston by giving back in a big way.

“It’s just an opportunity for the church to be the church and give back to the community that’s blessed us," said Tomelex Copeland, the campus pastor for Seacoast Dream Center.

And in return, blessing them with fresh Thanksgiving meals served with a smile.

“It’ll be turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, all of the staples, green beans, dessert – we just want to give to everyone who wants a Thanksgiving and who needs a Thanksgiving Day meal," continued Copeland.

Seacoast Dream Center served 3,000 meals Thanksgiving morning to families in need for their 13th annual turkey distribution, but families also left with more then food.

“It's not just about the meal; It’s about the experience when you hand it out, about seeing somebody and looking them in the eyes and just to see that they have value and that they matter," says Pablo Morales, the outreach pastor for Seacoast Dream Center.

Volunteers came from all over to serve.

“We’re sharing the story of a guy who actually came and was homeless, and he came to serve with us a couple of years back. And he just didn’t know, he was just stepping in for the first time in a while, to spend time on Thanksgiving. So this is just a place where people come together. It doesn’t matter where you come from – you still have the ability to serve," continued Morales.

Volunteers hope the community learns that service can be done in all forms, and sometimes it all starts with a meal.

"Just love people. The world would be such a better place if we just took the time to get to know one another and love on them, and the easiest way to do it is over a meal," Copeland said.

And the service does not stop there. The Dream Center has a food bank every Thursday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and a free medical clinic for people who are uninsured.
