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 Walterboro, 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.
If you need an energy-efficient, reliable cooling system for your home or business, you have come to the right place. 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 have made it our mission to make the AC installation process easy and efficient for our customers.

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.
As a family-owned and operated HVAC company in Walterboro, 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.

A business that has been a fixture in the lives of many Walterboro families is saying farewell after many years of service to the community. Mrs. Teresa Busbee announced with great sadness last month that the Sears Hometown Store, located at 377 Bells Highway, would be closing its doors for good in October.
From the early days as a Sears catalog store to its time as a franchise, the iconic business has been a household name in Walterboro. Some readers may fondly remember circling toys and trinkets in the yearly Christmas catalog. Others may look back and reminisce over the fact that their first major appliance purchases were made in one of the storefronts. No matter what the memories may look like, one thing is certain-the business was known for turning first time buyers into loyal customers.
Teresa and her staff’s commitment to building sincere relationships with and providing excellent service for Sears’ customers no doubt played a large part in building that loyalty. She noted that infusing her faith into the business created a welcoming atmosphere for all who entered the doors.
“I used it as a ministry for God,” Teresa said. “I always had a Bible in there. I had customers that would come in and read the Bible with me, and they would tell me they couldn’t go just anywhere and do that. We just always put God first.”
Going the extra mile to show their customers that they were appreciated led to many becoming like family to Teresa and the other employees.
“Every customer that came through there became a friend, but then that friend became a family member,” she stated with a smile in her voice. “I had very few disgruntled customers. I can say this-90% of the customers that came in disgruntled left feeling much better. Many even came back later to apologize for their behavior.”
Walterboro’s Sears Hometown Store didn’t just make a mark on its customers. The individuals that worked for Teresa through the years also left with more knowledge, skills, and confidence to move on to higher positions than they had when they were hired.
“I always told everybody to use this as a stepping stone to make your life better,” she said. “Get the experience, and if something comes about then go for it if that’s what you want to do.”
Although Teresa firmly believes that God doesn’t close one door without opening another that is even better, she’s saddened to know that there will be another empty storefront in town. She also recognizes that many of her former customers will miss the opportunity to speak with someone face to face in regards to payments (which can be paid online or mailed going forward), purchases, and other issues. However, Teresa was quick to mention that she doesn’t want her customers to feel that the business closing is not due to lack of support.
“I want people to know that this is not happening because the community did not support us,” she said emphatically. “It was nothing to do with the community or ownership. It was strictly a corporate decision made by Sears. We got caught up in this wave of closures, and there’s another coming. There are no more Sears stores in South Carolina.”
For many, myself and Teresa included, seeing Sears stores drift away feels like the end of an era-a door shutting softly on a time when personal service, friends, and family, was everything.
Teresa and the staff of Sears Hometown Store wish to extend many thanks to the people of Walterboro and beyond for their many years of continued support. The store’s final day will be Friday or Saturday for anyone that wishes to stop by one last time.

Perfectly portion-controlled and ready in only 1 minute, the BPA-free cups offer an on-the-go power-up loaded with flavors of chicken, vegetables and herbs with hearty rice.

The pastas are available in popular shapes like penne, spaghetti and elbow, and made with three ingredients – lentils, peas and cauliflower, zucchini or sweet potato. The gluten-free, non-GMO and vegan pastas are also a good source of protein and fiber. Visit veggiecraftfarms.com for more information.
As students advance through the school system, they are introduced to equations, data and graphs that can be best visualized and computed on a graphic calculator. With a high-resolution display, built-in applications and equations, plus the ability to add grid lines, the right calculator can make it easy to explore the STEM concepts found in math and science. Available in a variety of colors to fit your student’s personality, many options are also approved for use on major exams, including the ACT, SAT and PSAT, and in advanced placement courses.
Not only is a backpack a place to store your belongings on the way to and from class, it’s a simple way to express style and personality. Available in a nearly endless array of colors, styles and patterns, look for an option built to stand up to wear and tear over the course of the year. With zipper pockets, dividers, padded storage for laptops and other electronics and other built-in organizational tools, you can find an option to fit every student from kindergarten to college.
Regardless of age, every student needs the essentials. Pencils, notebooks, loose leaf paper, folders, scissors, rulers and glue are necessities for almost every grade level. Other items like crayons, markers, colored pencils, dry erase markers, supply boxes, headphones, tissues and hand sanitizer also find their way onto most supply lists. Specialty courses may have even more specific needs, and laptops or tablets are becoming common in most classrooms of all grade levels though many school districts provide the technology for students to use.
