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.

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.

A few weeks ago, I took up for the city of Walterboro, South Carolina after its leaders got some grief over their preparations for ‘Murdaughpalooza’ – a.k.a. the double homicide trial of accused killer Alex Murdaugh.
In case you missed that report, a vocal minority covering this trial are apparently upset with Walterboro’s leaders for wanting to provide the throng of people descending upon their city over the next few weeks with additional dining options (including food trucks).
The horror, right?
Imagine people needing to eat …
In rebuking these critics, I noted how our trial producer Ashleigh Messervy (whom you can read more about in this post) had been busy working up several segments for a report on how Walterboro – a.k.a. the “Front Porch of the Lowcountry” – was preparing for the ‘Murdaughpalooza’ influx.
Messervy sat down with Colleton County clerk of court Becky Hill and city tourism and downtown development director Scott Grooms – the “Murdaughpalooza’ organizers – to hear more about their plans for hosting an O.J. Simpson-sized trial in a town of less than 6,000 people.
For months, Hill and Grooms have been working around-the-clock on multiple fronts to make sure both the city and the courthouse were ready for the deluge – and to ensure everyone flocking to Walterboro to catch a glimpse of these historic proceedings knew what to expect.
It has been a Herculean task – a definitional logistical nightmare – but Hill, Grooms and countless other city, court and law enforcement partners working with them have proven themselves more than equal to the task.
Here is Messervy’s report on their preparations for South Carolina’s “trial of the century …”

Walterboro, S.C.- Edisto, Ashepoo, Combahee- Native American influence is preserved all over the Low Country in names of rivers and communities familiar to everyone, according to Dana Muckelvaney, council woman for the local native tribe, Edisto Natchez-Kusso of South Carolina. Boy Scout Troop 646, working on merit badges for Indian Lore, learned about local history and culture of Native Americans, at their Monday night meeting held at The American Legion Headquarters.
The local tribe straddles Colleton and Dorchester Counties along the Edisto River in communities known as Creeltown and Four Holes Swamp, Muckelvaney explained. Documentation of the Natchez-Kusso’s in this area predate colonial European settlement in South Carolina. Land ownership indicated the Natchez -Kusso’s had large tracts between the head waters of the Ashley River in-land toward the area now known as Creeltown and Four Holes Swamp, Muckelvaney said. Spoons Plantation, commonly known as Pon-Pon near the Edisto River was land granted to the Kussoses around 1700.
“ Land was sold for traded commodities such as deer hides,” Muckelvaney said. “Also important records and documentation was lost when the Colleton Courthouse was burned.”
Today native individuals can be “card carrying” tribal members by documenting their family lineage to surnames. This is done through birth,and death certificates, and census records, Muckelvaney explained.
The Tribal Council is a governing body that meets monthly just like other county and city councils. Our Chief is John Glenn Creel who was elected by tribal members, Muckelvaney said.
A cypress boat paddle was displayed. The tribe also made cypress canoes. Pottery and white oak baskets were handmade by tribal members. “Unfortunately, the last of our local craftsmen have passed away.”
“Natural resources were valued, never wasted,” Muckelvaney explained. “Our language has also been replaced by English. Our former chief, Andy Spell, is the only person left who speaks the language, and he has no one to talk to.”
Another council member, Micheal Muckelvaney, addressed the scouts dressed in his dancing regalia. He also talked about hunting and fishing as an important part of the native culture.
“We used bows and arrows and sometimes blow guns for hunting game. Fish traps were baskets with a funnel inside that caught the fish in such a way they could not escape the trap. Traps are illegal now, but that was our old way of fishing.” he said.
“All parts of the deer were used, the hides for clothing and moccasins. Our drums are made from hides, deer, elk, buffalo. They are sacred instruments that should not be touched without special permission. Women are not allowed to play drums.”
Muckelvaney explained that regalia always has special meaning. He explained his own head dress, made from porcupine needles with a buffalo “tail.” Decorations of regalia are symbolic including favorite colors, depiction of spiritual animals, and can often have extensive beading. Most are hand crafted by the person who plans to wear the regalia.
Micheal Muckelvaney is also a tribal drummer, dancer, and singer. He explained the jingle dance and the grass dance that were both performed, accompanied by drummer, Brian Coleman. The jingle dance is a “healing dance” , performed by Kenley Muckelvaney and Alijah Coleman .
Micheal Muckelvaney and Luke DeBello performed the grass dance, a ceremonial dance for buffalo hunts.
Local sources of information on the Edisto Natchez-Kusso Tribe of South Carolina can be found in displays at The Colleton Museum, The Dorchester Heritage Center at the St. George Courthouse, and by attending the annual pow wow.
“The pow wow is where we celebrate our culture, we honor our veterans. We dance and sing and drum and invite the public to participate with us,” Dana Muckelvaney said.
The 46th Annual Pow Wow will be celebrated on April 21-22 at 984 US 78, Ridgeville, S.C.

COLUMBIA, SC --- The Charter Institute at Erskine is taking action to address teacher shortages in South Carolina through the formation of a new nonprofit, TeachRight USA (TRUSA). TeachRight USA recently welcomed Tracey Williams as the first Executive Director.
At the beginning of the 2022-2023 school year, there were over 1400 teacher vacancies (according to CERRA) in the state of South Carolina. This number is growing exponentially as fewer people are entering the teaching profession and many veteran teachers are exiting the profession. This is particularly problematic in school districts where there is a greater minority population. Unless action is taken, the achievement gaps between our most disadvantaged and vulnerable students and their peers will continue to grow.
These problems are what TeachRight USA aims to address through proposing a new pathway to attract and retain talent in education, maintaining accountability for the work in the classroom and student impact. TRUSA’s approach includes drastically reducing the 4-7 years of education that is currently required before a teacher can enter a classroom to increase the number of prospective teachers and generate an effective teacher recruitment pool. TRUSA’s work has already begun with the hiring of their first Executive Director, Ms. Tracey Williams.
With over 20 years of experience in the field of education, Williams brings a unique perspective on the future of education to the role of TeachRight USA Executive Director. As a public-school teacher and administrator, she has observed firsthand how the teacher shortage affects existing teachers and students. As an AdvancEd (Cognia) district diagnostic team member, Williams knows that this is not only a problem in South Carolina, but in some of the largest school districts across the country.
Williams is a graduate of Clemson University where she earned a B.S. and a M.ED. She earned her second graduate degree from American Public University in Educational Leadership. Williams’ expertise extends to traditional school districts, business educational needs, and higher education programs. Williams previously contributed to the success of South Carolina’s virtual schools and has always taken an innovative approach to solving educational problems.
The Charter Institute at Erskine is the fastest-growing charter school authorizer in South Carolina, which serves 24 schools and 24,000 students across the state. They have first-hand experience with the need and urgency to create a solution and will support Williams and TRUSA in executing this initiative.

The brewery and restaurant complex will bring economic growth and new entertainment opportunities this spring
Watterson Brands is pleased to announce The Bank, a 13-million-dollar investment at 59 Pope Ave., will open to the public later this spring. The 17,000 square foot former Bank of America building turn brewery, beer garden and restaurant complex will include indoor and outdoor seating, Side Hustle Brewing Company craft brews on tap and available in cans to-go, outdoor activities including a family zone and band shell, a merchandise shop, and four dining options: Taco Bills, Bank Burgers, Pizza Co., and Benjamin’s seafood truck. Additional beverage and dining options will be located on the exterior of the main building to provide customers an enhanced experience.
“We’re working on elevating the types of entertainment experiences and venues on Hilton Head and Bluffton. We view entertainment as an opportunity to do more than eat a meal, I want people to revel in Lowcountry experiences – in nature, culture, history, cuisine, games, and live entertainment.” said Billy Watterson, CEO of Watterson Brands. “Clearly our venues need valued employees to make each patron feel welcome and provide guests with the best food and beverages on the island. And we’re happy to announce that we’ll be hiring for full and part-time positions in the coming months.”
The Bank expects to add 100 positions – everything from hosts to a general manager. This vastly increases the area’s employment opportunities and can expect to add millions back into the local economy as result. Hiring is anticipated to begin as soon as February. Those interested in learning more can visit www.thebankhhi.com. The Bank is also giving preference to local vendors for merchandise production, marketing, and credit card transactions.
The addition of The Bank to Hilton Head Island’s south end will also bring new opportunities for community and personal transportation. The Breeze, Hilton Head Island’s Public Trolly stop #10 is conveniently located right at the front of the beer garden off Pope Ave. The Bank will also provide more than 100 bike parking spots in addition to over 100 automobile parking spots for visitors.
Watterson and L.J. Bush, co-owner of Side Hustle Brewing Company and founder of the youth mentorship program Changing Our Image Now (COIN), have been collaborating on the project since the November 2021 acquisition of the company – which will be the mainstay brewery at The Bank.
“It is our goal to highlight local artists with live music in the beer garden in the same way we are promoting and encouraging entrepreneurship in the Lowcountry. Music, storytelling and food are pillars of the Lowcountry experience, and we’re proud to offer this, and more, year-round,” said Bush. “Additionally, we plan to have trivia nights and other fun activities, and we will be the venue to watch sports on the island.”
The outdoor bandshell, measuring 26 feet in diameter, will serve as the main entertainment venue for The Bank featuring live music, weather permitting. The stage will be conveniently located next to the outdoor games and designated family zone, where parents and guardians can ensure their children may play within a bordered area while not being excluded from the services at the venue.
Side Hustle Brewing Company’s current customers will notice the company’s logo and can design has changed. Just as the name implies – whether it is making ends meet or saving for something special – the Brewery’s brand celebrates those who go above and beyond for their ‘side hustle.’ The logo now features a money-scripted font and the marketing materials, including can design, will highlight the fictitious Benjamin Banker, CFO of Makin’ Bacon.
The two new restaurant concepts, Taco Bills and Bank Burgers, are from restaurateurs Marshall Sampson and Bill Alberts, co-owners of Santa Fe. Sampson, who also co-owns and operates Pizza Co. with Watterson Brands, will present menus to the public prior to the official opening. Benjamin’s creator and operator, Ben Watterson will also reveal new menu items specifically catering to this location in the coming months.
The flagship Side Hustle Brewing Company location on Arrow Rd. will transition to a new adult beverage venue. An announcement with further details will be made later this year.
About Side Hustle Brewing Company
Side Hustle Brewing Company, the latest of the Watterson Brands acquisitions, is currently the smallest craft brewery in South Carolina. The current 21 Side Hustle craft brews were created by brewer Lee Holyoak and his wife Emily, along with original founders Mike Palmieri and Faith Seiders, as a “side hustle” turned career in early 2021. Two years later, the brewery features outdoor seating, regular food truck options, draft beer, and 16 oz. singles and four-packs available to-go Monday-Wednesday, 3-6 p.m.; and Thursday-Saturday, 2-8 p.m.
A selection of Side Hustle craft beers is now sold at Burnt Church Distillery and Pizza Co., 120 Bluffton Rd. during normal business hours.

World-Class Professional Bull Riding (PBR) returns to North Charleston, South Carolina, Feb. 3-4. Interviews available with defending Event Champion Michael Lane.
For the fifth time in history, PBR’s Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour will buck into North Charleston, returning to the North Charleston Coliseum on Feb. 3-4 with the PBR Collision at The Coliseum.
For two nights only, some of the best bull riders in the world will battle the sport’s rankest bovine athletes in the ultimate showdown of “man vs. beast” in one of the most exciting live sporting events to witness.
As one of the initial events of the regular-season, fans will watch on as some of the sport’s newest up-and-coming talent goes head-to-head against established stars vying for crucial points to return to the sport’s top tour.
Among the contenders hoping for great success in The Palmetto State is veteran rider and defending “Collision at The Coliseum” event winner Michael Lane.
Beginning his career as a youngster riding his siblings’ show sheep, Michael Lane has since become one of the world’s top professional bull riders.
As the winningest bull rider on the PBR’s Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour, in 2021 Lane appeared to be poised to be crowned the tour’s year-end champion until injury struck.
Winning two events throughout the regular season in both Wichita, Kansas, and Bangor, Maine, Lane was ranked number one in the tour standings ahead of the two-day “Velocity Tour Finals” in Las Vegas. Lane, however, was unable to compete, sidelined by a broken thumb. Unable to challenge for the title, Lane finished runner-up to Champion Adriano Salgado by a mere 26.5 points.
In 2022, despite a strong start to the season, winning the “Velocity Tour” event in North Charleston, Lane fell short of his first “Velocity Tour Championship” and a berth to the prestigious “PBR World Finals.”
Eager to reverse his fortunes in 2023, determined to be crowned by the “PBR Velocity Tour Champion” and return to the prestigious “PBR World Finals” for the fourth time in his career, Lane is ready to take North Charleston by storm.
