South Carolina is one of the most beautiful places in the United States to call home.

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 Daniel Island, 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

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.

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.

Twenty-one mooring balls were recently installed and are visible from the two waterfront piers on Daniel Island’s Wando River coastline. The devices were permitted and funded by the Daniel Island Yacht Club
According to club representative Jeff Jarrard, a total of 144 mooring balls have been approved by the Army Corps of Engineers, SC Department of Health and Environmental Control and Ocean Resource Management.
Mooring balls are used to safely secure a vessel for a temporary stay.
The mooring balls off of Waterfront Park consist of a helical anchor that is driven into the seabed and attached to an elastic rope, known as a pennant.
These are not the mooring balls of old that were configured with a slab of concrete and a chain. The rope on modern mooring balls, like the ones installed off of Daniel Island, is flexible and stretches during tidal changes or storm surges.
Jarrard explained that the system is designed so as not to disrupt sea life or the ecosystem. He further noted that the balls do not impede the navigable waters because all of the moorings are located inside the channel.
The plan is to install a total of 73 mooring balls, Jarrard said, which is about half of the approved amount. Twenty-one out of a planned 28 have been installed north of the piers and another 45 are expected to be installed south of the piers, Jarrard said.
There are three types of moorings available: One that can sustain up to a 25-foot boat, one up to 35 feet and another up to 45 feet. Mooring balls for the smaller vessels will be closer to shore for depth reasons.
Although the mooring balls are engineered to have vessels attached during storm events, Jarrard said that the Daniel Island Yacht Club’s policy is that vessels cannot be moored during a storm.
Hazelett Marine is in charge of installation. Currently stationed in Panama, Hazelett is expected to return in two to three weeks to finish the remainder of the mooring field.
When the operation is complete, there will be two mooring fields and a main channel in and out of the facility between the two docks. The North Dock will be home to the Daniel Island Yacht Club and the Daniel Island Ferry. The South Dock is where the Carefree Boat Club resides, offering day docking and by the hour.
On the North Dock, there will be public restrooms and an administrative office for booking and launching charters and cocktail cruises. Construction has been delayed due to material supply issues but should be completed in the next few months.
There are currently no bridals or pendants on the mooring balls, rendering them unusable. Future usage will be permitted only for DI Yacht Club members or sponsored guests on a monthly or annual basis.
The Daniel Island Yacht Club has not opened up its membership yet. Its sailing program will be full steam ahead by the spring of 2022. Food and beverage services on the North Dock will be ready by early summer of 2022.
“Starting a yacht club is a different animal,” Jarrard said. “It takes a lot of preparation and discussion ... It’s a process ... We’re going to take our time and do it right.”

BOLD Entertainment’s feature film “This Is The Year” is set for a theatrical and video-on-demand release on Friday, Sept. 24.
The coming-of-age dramedy is David Henrie’s directorial debut. Executive producers are Daniel Island resident and entrepreneur Denis Gallagher along with Henrie’s longtime friend and former co-star on “Wizards of Waverly Place,” Selena Gomez. Daniel Island resident Doug Coupe, a colleague of Gallagher’s at BOLD Entertainment, is one of the film’s producers as well.
“I’m excited that we’ve partnered with Vertical Entertainment and MarVista Entertainment for the worldwide release of our film ‘This Is The Year,’” stated Gallagher, chairman of BOLD Entertainment, headquartered on Daniel Island at hub130 on River Landing Drive. “The team at Endeavor Content put a lot of work into getting these deals done which we appreciate. David Henrie did a great job with his directorial debut and Selena’s input on the film was very helpful. We are looking forward to seeing it hit big screens this month. I think everyone is ready for a feel-good film for the entire family.”
“BOLD Entertainment was a dream to work with,” Henrie stated. “Their whole team, under the leadership of Denis, has such an infectious sense of optimism that you can’t help but be the best you can be around them. They make you better at what you do, and I’ll never be able to express how grateful I am to Denis, Doug and the team.”
“This Is The Year” is a contemporary spin on many of the classic 1980s movies that resonated with that era’s youth. It aims to address the issues facing teens today – high school friendships, romances, escapades, change — speaking their language and breaking through with a meaningful story. The film stars Lorenzo James Henrie
(“Fear the Walking Dead”), Vanessa Marano (“Switched at Birth”), Bug Hall (“Little Rascals”), Alyssa Jirrels (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), Jake Short (“A.N.T. Farm”), with Jeff Garlin (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and Gregg Sulkin (“Runaways”).
“The trailer for the film, which dropped recently, has been well-received and gaining a lot of traction from not only David’s and Selena’s fans, but from so many people seeking an outlet to go on a fun-filled journey featuring good times, great music and powerful, relevant themes,” said former actor turned producer Coupe. He added that both David and Lorenzo Henrie have frequented Daniel Island on numerous occasions and love the island.
In the film, in a last-ditch effort to win over the girl of his dreams, a nerdy high school senior (Lorenzo Henrie) and his best friends embark on a road trip to see their favorite band at the hottest music festival of the year only to discover true love in the most unexpected place.
“Getting to work with some of my old ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’ co-stars was wonderful, we brought some of that magic to this film in a major way and we can’t wait to have people feel that,” Henrie added. “As the director, the main challenge was to try and maintain a spirit of creativity and optimism on set that allowed every single person to feel empowered to be the best they could be to serve the overall story and I believe we achieved that goal.”
The film initially debuts theatrically in 10 of the top 20 markets nationwide and broadens out after the Sept. 24 release. DI residents and others in the greater Charleston area can watch the film on major platforms such as Apple, Amazon, Google, Vudu/Fandango, Redbox On Demand, Comcast, DirecTV, Dish, Spectrum, and Verizon.
Locals can attend a private, red carpet showing at the Terrace Theater on James Island on Friday, Sept. 24, at 7 p.m. For tickets, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Waterfront, one of Daniel Island’s hottest commodities in its real estate market, has only just begun growing its footprint. Expansion is expected and so are more living options along the Wando River.
In March, following two years of construction, The Waterfront showcased Phase 1 of its multi-phase, mixed-use development. So far there are approximately 80 out of 300 high-end condominiums and townhouses — ranging in price from $1.2 to $1.8 million — as well as a two-story seafood restaurant, a deli-style cafe, two public piers, an interactive fountain and playground.
At this point, only 6 acres of the 22-acre parcel have been utilized, which equates to approximately 75% of acreage leftover for potential development. Plans are in motion for Phase 2, which includes more waterfront residential buildings.
First review of Phase 2 came Sept. 23, at the City of Charleston’s Technical Review Committee (TRC). The site plan, located at 320 Longshore Street, called for 3.38 acres, three buildings and 41 multi-family units.
The site is owned by Parcel R Phase 2 Development Company, LLC and the applicant is local engineering consultant Thomas & Hutton. The architecture will be done locally by McMillan, Pazdan, Smith; construction by Trident Construction; and water and sewer by Charleston Water System.
The area is zoned under the Daniel Island Town Center, just like Phase 1; however, Phase 2 won’t require any action from the city’s Design Review Board because it doesn’t funnel onto a public street. However, there are realignment and relocation concerns regarding the open space path at Waterfront Park.
“Will that be in place to keep the islanders happy?” TRC administrator Eric Schultz asked. “Because otherwise you cut them off.”
Thomas & Hutton’s project manager, Brian Riley, replied “Yeah, we’re working on a temporary reroute plan for the islanders while this construction happens.”
Although a timeline for the construction is unclear and dependent on the TRC process, a spec that is certain is that there will be gated garages with card key access. Also, at least 60% of all public entrances must be ADA compliant.
Other considerations that are being looked into are pedestrian street lighting and nature attractors such as bird feeders. The proximity of the grand trees on and surrounding the property will be undisturbed.
The site plan proposal for Phase 2 was revised and resubmitted to TRC. There are a total of six phases planned for The Waterfront.
Colorado-based real estate firm East West Partners, developer of The Waterfront, was contacted but unavailable for comment by the time of this article’s publication.

Valerin Trabanino is not your ordinary young adult. The 23-year-old go-getter runs two local businesses and launched a new music career this summer.
When Trabanino moved with her family to the Charleston area five years ago, she dreamed of starting a business in the area. “I love the southern charm of the people. I enjoy the small town feel of the Lowcountry.”
Trabanino always had an entrepreneurial vision and a deep desire to control her future. “Every journey starts somewhere. I felt inspired by the desire to be liberated and I was determined to choose my own destiny. I worked for other companies when I started my career as an electrician. I was doing great work for our clients, my bosses were happy with my work ethic. I knew I had talent.”
Three years ago, Trabanino took a leap of faith and started her first business, Val’s Painting LLC. The company provides wallpapering installation, interior and exterior painting to both residential and commercial projects throughout South Carolina and Georgia. Though she didn’t have any formal business training, she was confident in her skills and ability.
“When I started my painting company I didn’t have any clients and I had never taken a business course,” Trabanino said. “But I somehow knew I could hustle. I always knew I was meant to be an entrepreneur.”
Trabanino explained her guide to making her first business profitable. “We provide our services in the most timely manner and with an ongoing comprehensive quality-control program to ensure 100% customer satisfaction.”
Last year, in the middle of the pandemic, Trabanino opened El Gallo Bar & Grill located on Clements Ferry Road, a restaurant specializing in authentic Mexican cuisine. Despite the ongoing COVID lockdowns, she felt the time was right to offer local residents some international flavors at reasonable prices.
By offering take-out and following safety protocols for indoor dining, she seems to have found a recipe for success. Inside the eatery, Trabanino’s artwork is on display, as are her hand-painted murals that adorn the walls.
After a lot of paperwork, the restaurant recently acquired its liquor license — now Happy Hour is on the menu everyday from 4-7 p.m. Locals are in love with the restaurant’s special Mexican Bloody Mary — tastefully topped with seasoned shrimp and bacon.
Not one to rest on her laurels, Trabanino is turning her talents toward a budding music career. “At the beginning of the year, I was inspired to get my stress out by exploring my voice,” she said.
Trabanino’s first video and single, “We Litt,” is on YouTube. Her new single will be available on all major online music stores in a few weeks.
Trabanino credits her family, friends, and employees with giving her the ability to pursue her dreams. “I could not be where I am without the support of those who love and respect me. I am immensely grateful for that.”
