 Heating And Air Conditioning Services Summerville, SC

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.

 AC Repair Services Summerville, SC

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

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.

Common Signs That You Need a New AC Install in Summerville, 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 Summerville, 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

Summerville 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 Summerville, 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 Summerville, 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.

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - Changes are coming to a state-run facility after one of its residents was able to escape and was then struck by a car.

Documents show that the Coastal Regional Center approved a $49,950 purchase to build gates at its two front entrances off of Miles Jamison Road.

“I think with the traffic alone and the type of people that are housed at the Coastal Center... and this road began to pick up traffic like it did, gates should have been put in,” mother Margaret Treadwell said.

Mary Williams, a 42-year-old with disabilities had escaped from the facility late one evening in October.

A Live 5 Investigation last month revealed she wasn’t the only one.

“I was shocked, and I was upset. I actually knew the young lady that got hit and it was personal and quite heartbreaking and saddening for me,” Treadwell said.

Treadwell reached out to Live 5 News after hearing the story. Her 31-year-old daughter, who has non-verbal autism, was also able to escape previously.

“If someone like her gets out. She can’t go somewhere and ask for help to get back. It’s up to, unfortunately, society or whoever finds her to bring her back,” Treadwell said.

Department of Disabilities and Special Needs spokesman P.J. Perea says the gate project was undergoing planning for procurement starting in July 2022 after a need was identified based on “increased traffic, poor lighting at night, and lack of sidewalks on Miles Jamison road.”

Documents obtained from the department show a request for purchase was submitted on Dec. 15, less than a week after the Live 5 News story aired.

It had also been two months since Williams was hospitalized following the hit-and-run.

Treadwell says the road has always been busy since her daughter has lived there.

It is unclear when construction will begin.

Williams’ cousin, Nicole Nick, was happy to hear the news. But concerns still remain about staffing shortages and the cleanliness of the facilities, among others.

The South Carolina Bar and the Dorchester County Library (DCL) are collaborating in hosting Law Talk on Jan. 26 at the Summerville Library, from 5:30-6:30 p.m., where the topic of the day will be employment law presented by attorneys Brice Ricker and Emily Tong.

Registration isn’t required for this event, per DCL, that will feature a Q&A session at the end of the discussion.

“South Carolina’s employment relationships are ‘at-will,’ which generally means that employers can terminate an employee for any reason, or no reason at all; however, both federal and state law provides exceptions to this foundational rule ... Mrs. Tong and I look forward to helping Dorchester county residents learn about these exceptions and circumstances so that our community has a better understanding of their rights in the employment setting,” said Ricker.

For more information on Law Talk or other programs, contact Elizabeth Neal at 843-871-5075, ext. 212 or eneal@dorchesterlibrarysc.org.

Nearly 300 women will combine their energies next month in building a home for a Summerville-based single mom as part of Dorchester Habitat for Humanity’s annual build undertaking inspiring females to get involved in construction in the spirit of creating a forever home for a local family.

This “Women Build” initiative, according to Dorchester Habitat for Humanity Development Director Moriah Hollander, will require more than 2,000 hours to complete, as business partners will assist in the venture by donating construction materials.

“It’s the most fun we have on the build site each year,” Hollander shared. “You can show up never having picked up a hammer and leave knowing how to install trim in your living room.”

“Women Build” participants partaking in the project, says Hollander, will meet and work alongside the prospective home owner during weekend meetings in February.

The 2023 home recipient is Ariell Burgess, a mother of three.

“This house holds endless opportunity, growth, and stability in all areas of our life,” observed Burgess. “I want my kids to know their mom worked hard to build them a home.”

Volunteer Amanda Leviner is excited for what lies ahead and described the annual build as a great bonding experience for women.

“Women’s build was just a day of goodness,” she added. “Serving together but also knowing that that service is producing fruit in someone else’s life. Getting to meet her that day was an extra bonus.”

Those who wish to participate or sponsor this year’s construction activities are invited to to contact events@dorchesterhabitat.org for further details.

Two new retail shops are ready to launch in a Target-anchored shopping center in North Charleston.

“Opening soon” and “Now hiring” signs are posted in front of Advance Auto Parts and Popshelf in North Rivers Towne Center at 7250 Rivers Ave.

They are splitting a formerly 31,433-square-foot vacant space next to a recently opened Buy Buy Baby store. The retail center is owned by LBX Investments of Los Angeles.

Popshelf is a new concept from Dollar General that offers home furnishings, party items, toys and beauty products. It’s geared toward the suburban shopper with a household income between $50,000 and $125,000, higher than Dollar General’s lower-income targeted customers.

Opening dates for the new stores have not been announced.

Tool time

Tool giant Harbor Freight plans to set up shop in Summerville.

The Calabasas, Calif.-based retailer recently signed an extended lease for a 16,000-square-foot structure to be built at 388 E. 5th North St., also known as U.S. Highway 78, about a block south of the Berlin G. Myers Parkway, according to Dorchester County land records.

The 1.43-acre site, owned by Henbell Summerville HFT LLC of Augusta, Ga., sits east of a Spinx convenience store and gas station and next to Sawmill Branch. It also abuts a retail center where Planet Fitness and Palmetto State Armory are located.

Harbor Freight’s lease is for 15 years with five five-year renewal options. The agreement also grants the tenant the first right of refusal to purchase the property.

On the way

In northern Mount Pleasant, Red Bird Hospitality Group LLC plans to open a new Bohemian Bull tavern and beer garden in January in a 6,143-square-foot space at 2668 U.S. Highway 17.

The East Cooper franchise location for the bar and grill is the former site of Carrabba’s Italian Grill. It’s also near the newly opened Cabana Burgers & Shakes at 2664 U.S. Highway 17.

Bohemian Bull’s flagship venue is on Folly Road on James Island. Another restaurant is in Greenville, with a new site coming to Mauldin in the Upstate and another in Grapevine, Texas.

What’s cooking?

A Connecticut-based restaurant specializing in rotisserie chicken is close to opening in the Charleston area.

El Pollo Guapo recently applied for its state alcohol license at 1130 Folly Road on James Island where Black Magic Café operated before closing its last Lowcountry location in September after 13 years.

The new restaurant will offer whole roasted chickens, sides, tacos, rice bowls, salads, desserts and other items.

The company’s website says it plans to open by the end of the year and bring a food truck.

Cleaning up

Not one but two car washes are on the way to the Centre Pointe development in North Charleston.

Whistle Express, part of Charlotte-based Magnolia Wash Holdings, is building its first South Carolina location beside Mellow Mushroom on Tanger Outlet Boulevard while Tommy’s Express plans to take over the former Burger King site at Centre Pointe Drive and Tanger Outlet Boulevard near Walmart and Tanger Outlets.

Michigan-based Tommy’s Express has two other locations in the Charleston area on Ashley Phosphate Road in North Charleston and Trolley Road in Summerville. Opening dates have not been announced for either location.

Rolling in

A luxury rental transportation business recently added a second U.S. location in Charleston.

Double Black Transportation has set up an office at 310 Broad St. on the peninsula along with an off-site vehicle lot at 1211 Palm St. in Hanahan.

The company’s other location is in Jackson Hole, Wyo.

Case Resor is the owner of both businesses, which offer party buses for weddings, concerts and other social outings.
