If you need a trusted AC repair company in Mount Pleasant, 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

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.

Walk into a fishing tackle store to find a pack of hook and it can be overwhelming. Dozens and dozens of hooks in various sizes and styles made by different manufacturers. And the choice you make is very important. After all, that hook is the penultimate connection between you and the fish.I got to thinking about how far fish hooks have come while watching a YouTube video by the Outdoor Boys with my grandsons Jon Thomas and Mac.

Walk into a fishing tackle store to find a pack of hook and it can be overwhelming. Dozens and dozens of hooks in various sizes and styles made by different manufacturers. And the choice you make is very important. After all, that hook is the penultimate connection between you and the fish.
I got to thinking about how far fish hooks have come while watching a YouTube video by the Outdoor Boys with my grandsons Jon Thomas and Mac. The Outdoor Boys is a channel featuring a father and his three sons (and occasionally mom) enjoying outdoor adventures. This particular episode was titled “Primitive Survival Fishing Catch & Cook Camping Trip: No Hooks, Rods, Reels.”
The father and his youngest son (the two others were still in school) hiked to a nearby pond and began gathering earthworms to use as bait, and then the father began to carve out a fish gorge – predecessor of the fish hook. Imagine a shortened round toothpick, maybe an inch long, with a small notch in the middle in which to affix your fishing line.
After making several gorges, the father found a long stick to use as his fishing pole, attached some line and tied on one of the gorges. He then cut a section of earthworm about the length of the gorge and shoved the bait onto the gorge so just the very tips of the gorge were exposed, then tightened the line so that the gorge hung perpendicular to the line.
He explained that a gorge is not nearly as effective as modern fish hooks and doesn’t work that well on larger fish, but before long he had landed enough bluegills for an evening meal.
The fish can swallow the baited gorge, but when you pull back and put tension on the line the gorge turns sideways and lodges inside the fish. He used another stick to dislodge the gorge so he could put it on his stringer.
Fish gorges came along much later than the earliest fish hooks, which were made from shells and bones thousands and thousands of years ago. And steel fishing hooks have been around for hundreds of years.
When you look at the hook displays in modern tackle shops you will find two basic styles of hooks: the J-hook, so named because it is shaped like the letter J, and the circle hook. They come in sizes small enough to hook fish with tiny mouths up to giants designed to land large billfish or sharks. The barbed point of the J-hook is parallel to the shank.
More recently anglers have come to favor the circle hook in which the barb is turned toward the shank. Instead of having to set the hook, the hook is designed so as you tighten your line the circle hook generally catches in the corner of the fish’s mouth.
When it comes to catching fish, I don’t need more of a challenge. And I hope I’m never caught in a situation where I have to catch a fish in order to survive. But the Outdoor Boys and their fishing gorge intrigued me. So I spent some time this week carving out a few gorges and hope to try them out soon on some bream. The Outdoor Boys’ fish fry looked pretty tasty.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – Ben Byrd was excited to move into a new Mount Pleasant apartment.
“You know, it seemed like a really good deal,” Byrd said. “We were told, ‘you are going to be on the water in a nice new place,’” he added.
Byrd toured a unit at Edgewater Plantation off of I-526 and leasing agents quoted him $1,600 a month in rent. “It was beautiful, that is what they sold us on- they said this is the exact unit you are going to move into,” he said.
But less than a week before move-in day, Byrd said he was told he had to move to a different unit and that his rent would be going up to $1,900 a month.
“They called me and said, ‘hey, there is a problem with that unit, they are going to switch you to a nice newer more renovated unit,’” he said.
Byrd visited the new unit to take measurements days before he was scheduled to move in. “It was just like appalling. It smelled like urine and cigarettes, soft spots on the floor. There was trash everywhere,” he said.
He jotted down a list of necessary repairs. His primary concern was floor repair for the soft spots in the hall and kitchen. The management company said repairs would be completed in two days but Byrd said the crews never came.
“I started emailing them about it and didn’t get an answer. As we were unpacking the floor collapsed and I cut my foot open,” he said.
Four weeks went by without any repairs. News 2 contacted Edgewater Plantation’s parent company, Carroll, about the promised repairs and within days the floor was repaired.
“Resident experience is a top priority at Edgewater Plantation, and we take all resident matters very seriously. We have been in the process of assessing all subfloors throughout the property and making all necessary repairs. As a result, we have enlisted a qualified contractor to evaluate what subfloors need to be replaced and are working through what needs to be done. Mr. Byrd was notified prior to moving in that this project was currently underway. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, there have been delays in receiving the materials and the materials that were proposed to repair the subflooring were inconsistent with the current plan. As a result, our team provided a temporary solution so Mr. Byrd could occupy the space until the proper flooring arrived. It is important to us to provide the best resident experience and offer full transparency. We are working with Mr. Byrd to find a solution and to quickly provide the updated subflooring that was discussed prior to move-in.”Edgewater Plantation Management
Byrd also reported growing piles of trash from the alleged valet trash that is included in rent.
“Additionally, we recently replaced the trash compactor due to issues that were brought to our attention. Unfortunately, the pandemic has created staffing challenges for every business, but we have invested in additional resources to help ensure the property is well maintained for residents, guests and staff. We encourage our residents and staff to always place trash in the compactor instead of placing it in front of it.”Edgewater Plantation Management
News 2’s investigation revealed Byrd is not alone. Edgewater Plantation’s parent companies, Arium Living and Carroll LLC, have racked up more than 100 complaints on the Better Business Bureau.
Both companies have earned an “F” ranking on the site.
MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - An indoor entertainment venue could soon be coming to the northern end of Mount Pleasant in the Carolina Park community.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Ventura Sports Group, Mark Schuster, says this facility on Faison Road would be anchored by an eSports stadium, which will be used for other events throughout the year.
“Charleston’s a destination. As they continue to build these eSports venues around the country, people are going to want to go to places they love going to. And what’s a better place to go to than Charleston and Mount Pleasant,” Schuster said.
The project is on 29 acres of land, near Highway 17. Schuster says the eSports stadium will be 120,000 square feet with a 1,600 seat auditorium inside.
He says there will also be space for classes where you can go learn to play eSports. Plans also show a convention hall inside the eSports venue.
Schuster says the targeted audience for eSports is primarily those ages 13 to 35, but it continues to see more and more growth.
Schuster says around the venue will be retail stores, restaurants, and possibly a hotel.
He says they plan to host entertainments like boxing, mixed martial arts, and concerts in the area throughout the year.
Schuster, also the former General Manager of the Charleston RiverDogs, says there are only five other eSports stadiums like this one in the United States right now. Those are in Philadelphia, Arlington, Las Vegas, Oakland, and southern California.
The eSports venue in Mount Pleasant is in the planning and development stages right now. Schuster says they are trying to move quickly, and hope to see it open by the end of 2023, or the first quarter of 2024.
He says the cost of the project will vary based on what all comes around the space. He says they have received interest from folks about also having a post-production film studio here, to allow for more movie making in town. He says that has not been approved yet, but if it is included, the total project cost would be about $82 million.
He estimates it would bring about $10 million annually in tax revenue. He says that’s not to mention the number of jobs, both construction and full-time/long-term positions, it will bring.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - A Charleston County elementary school is the only Lowcountry school in the state to receive National Blue Ribbon Schools honors for 2021.
U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona recognized five South Carolina schools nominated by state Education Superintendent Molly Spearman for the honor, which is based on schools’ overall academic performance.
The five South Carolina schools recognized in Cardona’s announcement are:
“The entire Belle Hall Elementary School community takes great pride in this prestigious recognition,” Principal Kevin Conklin said. “For over three decades, the teachers, parents, staff, and community members have collaborated to create this extraordinary environment for students. Over the years, we’ve upheld our reputation of ‘Rigor and Relationships,’ which features high expectations and support for all learners bolstered by adults working together closely every day.”
Belle Hall Elementary School is the first school in the Charleston County School District to receive this award since Buist Academy in 2017.
“We are extremely proud of these five South Carolina schools that have been honored nationally for their academic excellence,” Spearman said. “This award is testament to the hard work of students, teachers, staff, and families in these communities. These five schools are models of excellence for our entire state and nation.”
The five South Carolina award winners were recognized in the “Exemplary High-Performing Schools” category, meaning they are among the state’s highest performing schools as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests.
The National Blue Ribbon Schools award affirms the hard work of educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging and engaging content, the state’s education department says.
The program, now in its 39th year, has given nearly 10,000 awards to more than 9,000 schools, with some schools winning multiple awards. Schools are eligible for nomination after five years.
Up to 420 schools may be nominated each year. The U.S. Department of Education invites National Blue Ribbon Schools nominations from the top education official in all states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the Department of Defense Education Activity, and the Bureau of Indian Education.
Conklin said Belle Hall Elementary is beginning to plan for ongoing celebrations this school year to highlight the accomplishment.

MT. PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — Bruce Savage's day started out like any other on August 11.
He took his dog on a walk around the pond at the end of Barbarian Way, which has been known to have some alligators in it.
“It’s a very safe neighborhood. We’ve known about the alligators,” Savage said. “It’s kind of a thing in the neighborhood; Can you spot the alligators?”
But when he took a turn in the back end of the path around the pond, that’s when his day took a turn for the worse.
“All of a sudden I heard a whoosh and then I saw Hannah’s (his dog) back end in the mouth of a gator.”
Grabbing the tail of his terrier Hannah, Savage held onto the leash, pulling her out.
“The whole thing was probably less than 60 seconds. The whole event,” Savage said. “I can’t hear anything, literally my whole system shut down. My ears shut down, I couldn’t hear anything. Except for myself screaming dogs names. I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
Hannah's tail was bitten off and she sustained other injuries to her back side, but Bruce did not receive any injuries from the gator.
“My kids were like, 'Well, did you look back,’ and I was like, 'Heck no,' I didn’t look back. I was running as fast as it could.”
Bruce and his family called animal control, but the gator was still not located.
The company Gator Getter Consultants searched the lake for hours residents told ABC, but didn’t find anything.
With the gator still being out there, Savage is even more worried for the future.
“I’m worried about kids. I mean a dog, I love Hanna. But it’s kids being around the water in their prime hunting time.”
Since 2016 there have been three gator fatalities recorded in South Carolina to which there were none reported before then. All of those cases happened in the Lowcountry.
The Department of National Resource’s Regional Public Information coordinator David Lucas said that he has noticed the increase in injury reports. He says there is a simple reason behind it.
“I think it basically boils down to that our population is increasing and development within alligator habitat in the coastal part of South Carolina are increasing,” Lucas said.
But Lucas also said that although summer is a hot time and a point where most people think gators would come out, it usually doesn’t happen this late into the summer.
“We get a lot more calls in the early spring and summer because alligators are more active in that period.”
Despite the unusualness of the situation, Savage says that he doesn’t have any plans to go back walking by the pond anytime soon.
“I just don’t think it’s smart to walk along there, and I don’t think Hannah will ever go there again.”
DNR also said that if anyone is near a wetland to stay 10 feet apart for their safety.
“If you are looking at fresh water in the Lowcountry, if you are looking at a pond or a wetland, a fresh water area, you are looking at alligator habitats,” Lucas said. “The operative thing to remember here is that you are talking about wild animals. And they are unpredictable.”
