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 Cane Bay, 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.

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.

Cane Bay High School’s girls soccer team will have a new leader next spring as it tries to build on the program’s best-ever campaign on the pitch.
Former JV coach Taylor Hillman takes the reins from William Everett, who retired after last season. The 2022 Cobras won 10 matches, finished second in Region 7-AAAAA and hosted a Class AAAAA playoff match. They appear to be trending upward.
Hillman is grateful and humbled to have been considered for the gig.
“It is absolutely a dream come true to have been selected as the new coach of a program I feel I’ve put my heart and soul into,” Hillman said. “My favorite part about coaching the junior varsity women was having such a hands-on impact on their development, not only as young athletes but also as young women. It’s such a beautiful thing to see their growth and achievements and absolute love for the game over time.”
It’s not hard to see Hillman has a passion for the game. A Cincinnati native, she began dribbling a soccer ball as soon as she could put one foot in front of the other without falling over and eventually suited up in high school and at the club level at the University of Dayton.
“When I graduated college, I knew I couldn’t leave the soccer field just yet so I decided to get into coaching,” Hillman said.
This will be her fifth year at Cane Bay. Hillman started out teaching and coaching at Summerville High School in 2017 and spent one year with the Green Wave.
Hillman’s first varsity squad at Cane Bay has some key players to replace. She lost all three all-region players - Kara Perkins, Marina Werwinski and Caitlyn Tyson – and primary goal keeper Mikayla Lawrence off last year’s team. Perkins scored 27 goals and dished out 10 assists.
However, the next two most proficient players at finding the back of the net can return for Hillman’s maiden voyage. Rising sophomore Natalya Hahn tallied 11 goals and three assists while classmate Claire Orth scored eight goals. A handful of other experienced players can also return.
“We did graduate a lot of very talented players and we will absolutely miss them and everything that they brought to our program but we still have the potential to fill another strong roster for this upcoming season,” Hillman said. “These young women are determined, tenacious and fearless. They understand the day you plant the seed is not the day you eat the fruit. As I said before, I’ve coached almost all of our returning varsity athletes in their days on the junior varsity, and I know without them we would not be the program we are today.”
The 2022 edition of the Cobras lost by a single goal in the opening round of the playoffs. Hillman hopes to guide her first team to a postgame celebration in the postseason. The Cobras have never seen the second round of the playoffs.
“Obviously, the goal of any coach is to win the state championship, and that is still a goal of mine,” she said. “However, Cane Bay women’s soccer has never won a playoff match and I believe we have the determination, work ethic and tenacity to change that very soon.“
Hillman, who teaches government, economics and psychology, during the school day, is also the women’s cross country coach in the fall.
The Cane Bay High School wrestling program may have a new point man in the winter but the Cobras will be ready to strike on the mat as usual.The Cobras began their first offseason with Aaron Hynick at the helm when veteran coach Tim Wash took a step back in March. Wash, who finished with over 500 career duals victories, guided Cane Bay to the Region 7-AAAAA crown last season and earned the region’s coach of the year nod. He’ll serve in some capacity for the 2022-23 campaign, though, but will have more time to hunt and fish...
The Cane Bay High School wrestling program may have a new point man in the winter but the Cobras will be ready to strike on the mat as usual.
The Cobras began their first offseason with Aaron Hynick at the helm when veteran coach Tim Wash took a step back in March. Wash, who finished with over 500 career duals victories, guided Cane Bay to the Region 7-AAAAA crown last season and earned the region’s coach of the year nod. He’ll serve in some capacity for the 2022-23 campaign, though, but will have more time to hunt and fish.
From a personnel standpoint, the needle is definitely pointing up. The Cobras lost just one senior starter from a squad that advanced to the second round of the Class 5A state duals. They’ll be as experienced as any bunch in the Lowcountry.
“We’ve got a team that’s ready to surprise some people,” said Hynick, a Cane Bay assistant since 2015. “I’m hearing guys saying they want to go to state and win state. They want to do big things as a team. They’ve got something they want to do and I’m going to do everything I can to lead them in that direction.”
The Cobras will construct a tough lineup around two-time state champion JJ Peace. Peace, a rising junior and reigning Region 7-AAAAA wrestler of the year, is unbeaten in two high school campaigns with state titles at 106 and 113 pounds. After last season, he earned all-American honors by placing fourth at sophomore nationals in Virginia Beach.
“He’s our building block,” Hynick said. “He’s a guy who everybody leans on. He’s always won. Now, he’s also become more of a (vocal) leader.”
Additional all-region wrestlers who can return for the Cobras are Madeline Bowlin (106), Noah Outen (113), Caiden Saavedra (132) and Will Coker (220). Saavedra, a rising sophomore, placed fourth in the state last season.
“Our team last year was really, really young,” Hynick said. “We were sophomore-junior heavy. This year, we’re going to be junior-senior heavy. We’ve got some good incoming freshmen and some freshmen who have been working hard since the season ended.”
While Cane Bay’s lighter wrestlers have the most accolades to this point in their high school careers, the heavier grapplers are coming, too. Hynick has seen the group getting after it in the weight room as football season approaches.
“Those guys have impressed the heck out of me,” he said. “I see them weightlifting for football. Whatever they’re doing, they’re all in. At camp, they showed me some stuff. They’re willing to go in the deep waters and get themselves tired, and do what they can to come out on top.”
Included in the bigs with Coker are rising senior Jaden Ussery, rising senior Ben Newton, rising junior Jayden Ferguson and rising junior Andrew Tumbleston.
As far as competing as a team this summer, the Cobras won 10 of their 13 duals matches at Lander’s camp in June and tangled with Cross High School in another matchup. The two Berkeley County programs got in a productive day’s work.
“A lot of our guys are playing football but we’ve got another group that’s all-in on wrestling like JJ and guys like that,” Hynick said. “They haven’t stopped practicing since our season ended. They’re going around with the clubs around Charleston and trying to get as much mat time as they can.”
Hynick can relate to his wrestlers’ journeys. From his own experience, he knows the effort and discipline it takes to pull up a singlet and fight the day-to-battle with food. Hynick began wrestling at 8 years old.
He won a Kansas high school state championship 15 years ago and became a club national champion as an individual and team member as a junior and senior at Wichita State.
Gaining the keys to his own program is another dream come true.
“This is definitely something I’ve had my eye on for a little while,” Hynick said. “There are some nerves but I’m extremely excited. One thing that keeps me from getting too overwhelmed is Coach Wash will still be around. It’s good to have a mentor who has been doing it as long as he has. He knows as much as anybody.”
Before leading Cane Bay for 11 seasons, Wash guided Lugoff-Elgin to three state championships and three runner-up finishes. He also led Rock Hill to a pair of runner-ups.
Wash garnered five region coach of the year honors at Cane Bay and went 13-5 in 2021-22, winning the region title for the fourth time since 2017.
Hynick’s first squad figures to make a serious run at another region crown.

This spring, the Buccaneers were within one win of advancing to the NCAA Tournament, finishing runner-up in the Big South tournament.

Fast-food chain Chick-fil-A is planning a new roost in one of the Lowcountry’s megadevelopments in Berkeley County.
The Atlanta-based company plans to build a 4,452-square-foot restaurant at 1726 State Road on an outparcel at the Publix-anchored Market at Cane Bay Shopping Center, according to site plans.
The parcel sits between Parker’s Kitchen convenience store and a building jointly occupied by AT&T and Starbucks coffee shop.
“While we are still early in the process, Chick-fil-A is happy to share that we are actively pursuing a new location in the Summerville area,” according to company spokeswoman. “We look forward to working through the approval process … and are excited by the prospect of joining the Cane Bay neighborhood.”
The representative did not provide a construction timeframe. The chicken chain has several other restaurants across the Charleston region.
Another one is slated for Charleston International Airport and could open in December, pending a contract extension with airport concession giant Hudson Group.
A downtown Charleston restaurant wants to expand but needs permission from the city to forgo the required number of parking spaces.
Roy Neal, owner of El Jefe Texican Cantina at 468 King St., will ask the city’s Board of Zoning Appeals on March 1 for a special exception to build a 1,220-square-foot outdoor deck without providing more parking. The expanded restaurant would require 28 spaces under city regulations.
Architectural firm Synchronicity is representing the restaurant in the special exception request.

It’s part of Ohio-based Signet Jewelers, which also operates well-known brands such as Kay, Jared, Zales and Diamonds Direct, among others.

The owner is Tracey Wonnacott, a self-described Francophile whose shop displays a French flair. She plans a grand opening later in the spring. The new location is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m Monday through Saturday.
A new massage franchise will open its first South Carolina location in the Lowcountry on March 2.
The Now Massage will welcome customers at 1421 Shucker Circle, Suites 103-105, in the Oyster Park retail center in Mount Pleasant.

A Virginia-based restaurant with a bawdy-sounding name is now welcoming diners in downtown Charleston.
Well Hung Vineyard, named after a former grape-growing farm in the Old Dominion, opened Feb. 19 at 49 S. Market St. across from the City Market.
Owner Anthony Herring has two other locations in Virginia in Roanoke and in Gordonsville, near the company’s base outside Charlottesville.
Herring bought the business in 2016. It started as a vineyard near Charlottesville in 2008 by three women.
The restaurant’s wines come from a winery in the Old Dominion that make them from grapes grown in Washington, Oregon and California.
The “eclectic” menu will be tweaked every three months. Offerings include salads, sandwiches, pizzas, shrimp and grits, and various other dishes.
The Market Street site includes some seafood choices the restaurants in Virginia do not offer.
The restaurant is open seven days a week with brunch on weekends. The dining room includes the bottom two floors while the third floor serves as an office.
Aaron Lee is the general manager, and Stephanie Wilson is the chef. The restaurant is open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m.-10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Reservations are not required.

The drawing for the second-largest Mega Millions jackpot in history took place Friday night. The winning numbers were 67, 45, 57, 36 and 13 with a "Mega Ball" of 14.
It remains unclear if any winning tickets were sold. The Mega Millions website crashed immediately after the numbers were announced.
The Mega Millions jackpot was estimated to hit $1.28 billion by Friday night's drawing, the lottery game said in a news release. If a winner wanted to take the lump sum of cash, they would walk away with $747.2 million in cash before taxes.
According to the Associated Press, lottery officials expect the prize will grow to $1.7 billion for the next drawing Tuesday if no one wins on Friday. That would be the largest-ever Mega Millions win.
The last Mega Millions drawing was Tuesday. While no one won the grand prize, nine tickets won at least $1 million, Mega Millions said. Ahead of that drawing, the CEO of Raising Cane's said he bought 50,000 Mega Millions tickets, promising to share the winning with his employees if he claimed the jackpot. CEO Todd Graves said he bought more tickets ahead of Friday night's drawing.
Mega Millions' largest jackpot ever was $1.537 billion in 2018, with the winning ticket sold in South Carolina. The next biggest Mega Millions prize was $1.05 billion in 2021.
The current jackpot is also the third largest prize in U.S. lottery history, behind a Powerball drawing in 2016 that reached $1.586 billion, with winners in California, Florida and Tennessee.
The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 303 million, while the odds of winning any prize are 1 in 24, according to Mega Millions.
