Air Conditioning Repair in Summerville, SC

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.

Here are just a few of the AC issues that our talented team can help solve for you:
Air Conditioning Drainage Block

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.

Air Conditioning Drainage Block

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.

Air Conditioning Drainage Block

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.

Air Conditioning Drainage Block

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.

Air Conditioning Drainage Block

Broken Air Conditioning Compressor Fan

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.

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.

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.

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.

At 100 Omni Industrial Blvd, the Omni Industrial Campus is a brand-new three-building Class A industrial development in a prime location in Charleston's I-26 Distribution Corridor. With Building 2 already pre-leased, Buildings 3 and 4 provide a compelling opportunity to occupy industrial space in one of the most advantageous locations in the Charleston MSA. Omni Industrial Campus can accommodate a variety of users, including logistics companies, aerospace, and automotive suppliers, defense contractors, light manufacturers, and last-mile distribution. Building 3 consists of 364,000 SF and features 36' clear heights, 36 dock-high doors (expandable to 62), and four drive-in doors. The facility offers 305 car parking spaces and 79 trailer parking spaces with a 190' depth for ease of access. Building 4 is 606,880 SF and features 36' clear heights, 64 dock-high doors (expandable to 116), and four drive-in doors. The facility offers 350 car parking spaces and 157 trailer parking spaces with a 190' depth on both sides. Berkeley County is known for its incentives and fee-in-lieu-of-taxes (FILOT) programs, which has helped attract major manufacturers, including Volvo and Mercedes Vans. There is a development agreement in place for all occupants in Omni Industrial Park, with the following minimum level of incentives available: 25-year FILOT program for the millage, assessment, and abatement in place until 2042, up to $2,500 in tax credits, and a fixed assessment ratio of 0.06. The Omni Industrial Campus provides immediate access to Route I-26: Jedburg Interchange (Exit 194) and Nexton Interchange (Exit 197). Surrounded by a thriving port and manufacturing economy, other distribution channels are just a short drive. 10 miles to Brown Distribution Center Railroad, 20 miles to the North Charleston Freight Port Terminal, and 21 miles to Charleston International Aiport. Major OEMs, including Volvo, Mercedes-Benz Vans, and Boeing, are proximate to the site. Employees will enjoy a short drive to shopping, dining, and entertainment along N Main Street in Summerville, including the North Main Market and Azalea Square.

Berkeley County benefits from an abundance of developable land, readily available labor and close proximity to The Port of Charleston. Transportation is made easy here through Interstate 26, which provides quick access to the port, Interstate 95, and South Carolina’s capital, Columbia.

The Port of Charleston continues to increase TEU handling capabilities, making Charleston an attractive option for major industrial users. In fact, the port recently secured federal funding to deepen the harbor to 52 feet, making it one of the deepest ports on the east coast by 2021. This advantage has attracted notable industrial users in recent years. For instance, Volvo opened its first North American plant in Ridgeville in 2018 which sparked both development and demand for industrial assets in the area.

Industrial properties are largely concentrated along the I-26 corridor, where the percentage of college graduates is higher and drive times to the Port of Charleston are shorter. Parts suppliers for some of North Charleston’s largest manufacturers such as Boeing and Mercedes Benz are located in this corridor as well.

Although Berkeley County is home to an impressive portfolio of industrial users, rents here are comparatively inexpensive. According to CoStar data, properties here rent at a discount compared to its neighbor North Charleston, despite close proximity. Rents here are also more affordable than the average rate seen metro wide.

St. George’s (Revised) Covid Protocol

The DHEC-reported case rates and testing positivity rates have recently begun to level off slightly, but a new surge is expected following Labor Day and widespread attendance at sporting events. We are already seeing cases among our congregation and families at St. George’s. And this trend is supposed to worsen before it gets better. Because of this, and with the concurrence of Rex Elser, our Sr. Warden, I am recommending the following temporary adjustments to our Covid Protocol here at St. George’s, effective immediately:

I do strongly recommend that everyone (whether vaccinated or not) mask up for the time being until the current surge ebbs. Readers and preachers who are performing up-front ministry tasks will not be masked because a relatively safe distance exists between them and the congregation. Those who are serving communion at the altar rail will be masked for the protection of those who remove their masks to receive bread and wine. Anyone who is unvaccinated may not serve in the altar area.

Also, please refrain from personal contact during the sharing of the peace. We are not putting up social-distancing ribbons; however, we ask that everyone voluntarily take care to bunch with your family groups and keep a responsible distance in the pews.

We will continue with limited coffee-time between the 9:30am and 11am services. We trust everyone to use common sense when handling coffee cups and snacks, and to use the hand sanitizers liberally and often.

I remind you that if you are not feeling well, have a fever, or are experiencing other health manifestations that you would consider to be “off”, please do not come to in-person worship until you are feeling normal again. And please get tested when you have symptoms that resemble a cold, such as a cough, the sniffles, scratchy throat and/or a fever. An upset stomach also is symptom of Covid infection.

If you feel uncomfortable for any reason joining us in person, or are out of town, please consider joining us online. For information on how to join us online, please see the St. George’s Episcopal Church in Summerville Facebook page for live services at 9:30am or 11am Sundays (we alternate live presentations weekly between the 9:30 and 11am services). They can be viewed as recorded services at any time on YouTube at the St. George’s YouTube page or on our Church App.

I urge you to get your vaccine if you have not yet done so. It could save your life, as well as help to shorten the life-span of the current surge. The Delta Variant strain of the Covid19 virus is reportedly much more contagious and dangerous, according the health officials, especially to the unvaccinated, than the original strain. And this time around, the younger among us, including our children, are more vulnerable than before.

While most in our fellowship have been vaccinated, our children have not, and it is our desire to protect them. It has also been discovered that vaccinated people are capable of transmitting the virus, even though they themselves may be symptom free. Therefore we make these recommendations out of love and care for all. We are hearing from local health experts that the current surge should begin to abate over the next couple of months. Because this is a fluid situation we will continue to monitor closely and make adjustments as needed.

Finally, if you wish to have a short visit in your home for communion form the reserved sacrament, please call the church office and let us know. We are doing our best to keep up with pastoral needs and it would be helpful for us to know your wishes.

This Weekend, Celebrate Sweet Tea in the South Carolina Town That Invented It

The two best places in the world to enjoy sweet tea are: 1. your front porch; and 2. Summerville, South Carolina.

Each year, the town known as the "Birthplace of Sweet Tea," celebrates the beloved beverage with its very own festival, which is currently in full swing outside Charleston.

The week-long Summerville Sweet Tea Festival transforms historic downtown Summerville into a massive street fair complete with food trucks, artisanal vendors, and live entertainment. This year's fun began Monday and culminates Saturday, September 18.

Organizers with Summerville Dream told Post & Courier that this year's festival was inspired by pandemic-related revisions made to last year's event, when the festival was transformed from a one-day gathering into the "Sweetest Week Ever" to allow for social distancing.

"Last year we got creative and spread it out over a few days and we called it the 'sweetest week ever,'" Steve Doniger, executive director of Summerville Dream and festival organizer, told the paper. "Well, that was so popular, and we had such a great turnout that we are actually doing that again this year, and we have expanded that a little bit."

Over the past decade, Summerville has broken a world record for the world's largest sweet tea, and set up a Sweet Tea Trail featuring businesses that offer sweet tea-inspired specials like sweet tea cupcakes, sweet tea cinnamon rolls, sweet tea jelly, a sweet tea pork chop sandwich, and even a sweet tea brined chicken salad.

But Summerville hasn't been recognized as the official "Birthplace of Sweet Tea" for long. For decades, the drink was believed to have been invented in St. Louis at the World's Fair in 1904. Everything changed, however, when a list of items purchased for a reunion of old soldiers near Summerville, which included 600 pounds of sugar and 880 gallons of iced tea, was discovered from 1890.

"We started sharing the history that we thought was so charming," Summerville tourism director Tina Zimmerman told the Post & Courier. "I think great things have come from it."
