If you need a trusted AC repair company in Goose Creek, 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.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - Goose Creek resident Lisa Berry has lived in the West Greenview Acres neighborhood since 2004. She describes her neighborhood as “pretty quiet,” besides occasional traffic.
She found out about a planned development that could be built right next to her home and was taken aback. To her understanding, a road was going to run adjacent to her home and go to Red Bank Road, and a playground with a parking lot was going to be built on the other side of her property. She said those plans were concerning.
She posted in a Facebook group for Goose Creek residents, trying to inform her neighbors about what was going on. She said she was inspired to speak up; and said there should be no more construction.
“I was driving down Red Bank Road, and by the rural fire department, they have a marquee; it’s a flashing sign that changes,” Berry said. “It said, ‘if not you, then who?”
Berry’s post got the attention of Mayor Greg Habib, who responded in his own post in the group. He said he felt the need to give an explanation about what their processes are, what they are trying to accomplish, and how growth is important.
Berry met with the mayor Wednesday morning, and she discovered that there was an updated plan. She said that now instead of a road next to her house, it is proposed to be a walking trail, and the playground plans have changed as well. Habib said it is going to be a mix of townhomes and single-family homes with a commercial element on Red Bank Road.
One of the concerns that Berry had was that the property floods. Habib said the only way the flooding problems are going to go away is if someone develops the property properly.
“I knew it had a flooding problem,” Habib said. “We told the developer when he first came to us, you have to address flooding in this area if you’re gonna do anything here, and what the developer has proposed is a stormwater plan that actually takes water from off the property onto his own property to mitigate the flooding problems that are there now.”
Now Berry said she is not opposed to development but wants it to be done in a smart way.
“We have to change,” Berry said. “We can’t just stay the same. I just want it to be an informed decision where all citizens understand what’s going on and can voice their concerns, and if we don’t share that information then people are left out.”
It is not the first time that development concerns have been expressed in rapidly growing Goose Creek, or in the Lowcountry. Goose Creek is now the 8th largest city in South Carolina.
“We’re 47,000 people,” Habib said. “We are not a small town in small-town America anymore.”
Habib said he often hears concerns about traffic issues. He said the greatest tool to reduce traffic is economic development and putting people and businesses closer together.
“We got traffic here,” Habib said. “How do you mitigate that? Well, understanding that not building anymore is not an option, so how do you then mitigate it there is your plan for it, you do it right, and you do it in a way that makes sense.”
Habib said there are over 5,000 homes entitled to go up in the city. Habib said some of those are going to create more traffic than others because they are on the outskirts of the city. Until there is commercial development there, those people will have to drive into the main commercial section of the city to get what they need. He said they need to get commercial development out to those areas as fast as they can to mitigate the traffic.
“If we’re gonna build houses, which we know we have to, we’re going to insist developers to build communities,” Habib said.
Habib said they cannot sit by as development happens. Instead, they need to participate in it and make it look like what they want it to be.
There will be a public hearing regarding the aforementioned planned development on July 5 at 6 p.m. at City Hall.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCBD) – The Goose Creek Chapter of the NAACP is expressing concerns about a new state law that could impact the Berkeley County School Board.
Bill S910 says the Berkeley County School Board should have nine members, of which eight should be elected from single-member districts where they reside, while one member should be elected from the county at large.
Board members previously expressed their concern over the new law. Now, the Goose Creek NAACP said they are planning to hold a public meeting to address the same concerns.
“Bill S910 has been passed through the Senate and House with minimum community input, and we’re concerned that the community that it will affect doesn’t know the ramifications of the bill,” said Sharina Haynes, president, of the Goose Creek NAACP.
One of their main concerns is how the law, which was signed by Governor Henry McMaster this year, changes the makeup of the board.
“Eliminating a minority seat in addition to that will also include adding an at-large member. So we want the community to come out and let them know about what is happening with this bill, the ramifications of it, how we got here, and who got this passed.”
Haynes said the elimination of a minority seat also means two minority members of the board will have to run against each other in November. They are also concerned about how the law cuts in half the four-year term in which several board members were elected in 2020 since the new law required all members to run for re-election this year.
“We have members of the school board who were elected in November 2020 and with this new bill they will have their terms decreased from four years to two years,” said Haynes.
The school board is in the process of filing a lawsuit over the new law, and the Goose Creek NAACP says they believe that step may be needed since the law is already in effect.
That is why they plan to hold a public meeting in a week and a half. “And let everyone know that there are some ramifications that will affect your children with the passing of this S910 bill.”
That meeting will take place on Saturday, July 9.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - Cayce Giddens has lived in Goose Creek for fifteen years. She said she and her family were getting stressed about the rising prices of groceries, inflation, and food shortage issues. So, they started talking about getting chickens to help ease that stress.
“We talked about having chickens, and when we looked into what the city says about it, we found out they’re not allowed at all in Goose Creek, and that was shocking to find out,” Giddens said.
Giddens started talking to some of her neighbors and decided to start an online petition to try to get the City of Goose Creek to allow residents to have chickens. As of Monday morning, the petition had almost 300 signatures.
“We’re stressed out about food and providing for our families, and that chickens was an easy way to at least have those eggs in the background for their calorie content and their protein and just wanting to have that as an extra staple to supplement our groceries,” Giddens said.
She said the concerns she’s been hearing on the other side of the issue are about cleanliness.
“I think an ordinance is the best of both worlds,” Giddens said. “It gives people who want to own chickens that security of having that food, but it also gives people who don’t want to own chickens or worried about it a recourse to handle that if somebody’s not taking care of their property.”
According to the proposed ordinance, people cannot have hens without first obtaining an approved application and an annual compliance inspection and fee payment. Under the ordinance, roosters would not be allowed. One chicken per 2,500 square feet would be allowed, with a maximum of 4 chickens maximum regardless of lot size. Hens would not be allowed to be raised for commercial purposes.
John C. says, "Private property rights are fundamental and Goose Creek is acting like a tyrannical HOA, not a reasonable municipal government."
The proposed ordinance says animal control or code enforcement officers may enter and inspect properties containing coops to investigate potential violations or compliance with the ordinance.
NOTE: Council will discuss the proposed changes at tonight’s council meeting at 6 p.m.
City of Goose Creek Public Information Officer Frank Johnson sent Live 5 News this statement regarding the proposed ordinance:
“At its June 14 meeting, Goose Creek City Council will consider an ordinance that would allow City residents who live in single-family homes to keep up to 4 chickens, depending on property size. The meeting will include discussion about the issue and a first reading vote. A City ordinance would not change or supersede existing HOA guidelines for residences governed by an HOA. Council members were approached by residents who are in favor of such an ordinance earlier this year.”

Devante Daniel Powell, aka Bboy Tahu, has been representing Charleston all over the world as a competitive performance artist for the last 12 years. During this time Powell grew into a prominent member of the locally based Dancing on Air (DOA) collective, a group that consistently pushes the boundaries of hip-hop expression through movement.
“While a lot of people call the acrobatic and expressive movement breakdancing, the practitioners of the dance actually refer to it as breakin’,” Powell told the City Paper.
Other Dancing on Air members include Cody Soles, Delma, Ran-Z, J-wall, Aero, Sinobi the funkchild, Adrian and Willy the Hiphop drummer. And, all of the participants are Lowcountry residents who are closely connected to each other, according to Powell. Dancing on Air draws influence and knowledge from Charleston‘s first breaking crew, Hypnotic Body Rock.
“A few of my friends and I, along with my brothers, started our crew DOA in 2010 in the neighborhood called Carnes Crossing in Goose Creek,” Powell said. “The beautiful thing about that is that we all knew each other years before we started dancing so the bond I share with them is something truly special. These have all become my brothers over the last 12 years, and, together, we’ve been on a mission to show the world what Carolina breakin’ is all about.”
It turns out that the world has indeed been watching as Powell and others of his generation have deftly revitalized what many wrongly assumed was a lost art. Remarkably, it has been announced that this urban-street-dance style will make its official debut in the 2024 Olympic Games. That’s a huge breakthrough for a subset of dance that has been steadily, if not exactly quietly, regaining momentum for decades.
“It’s funny that breakin’ is becoming super popular again, as if it had gone somewhere and people had not seen it in a while,” Powell said. “But the weird thing is that it never left. It just went underground and slowly, throughout the years, it was building its way back up into the limelight.”
Still, Powell marveled at the staying power of the whole scene. “To see something that started in the Bronx of New York in 1978 by teenagers on cardboard making its way to the Olympic stage is nothing short of inspiring,” he said. “There are already Bboys that are being sponsored by major corporations such as Nike, Vans, Monster Energy and even Red Bull. So, who knows what the next level will be after it touches the Olympic stage.”
That said, Powell hopes that none of the bigger ideals that are part and parcel of the practice get lost in translation along the way.
“Breakin’ is definitely more than just cool spins and tricks. It’s about living in the moment, truly being one with the music and representing hip-hop to the fullest,” Powell said. “Out of all of the four elements [of hip-hop], it’s my personal favorite, the other three elements being MCing, DJing and graffiti painting. All of the elements, however, share the core values of hip-hop which are rooted in peace, unity and having fun. So, although the head spins and other big moves are really cool, I hope that hip-hop overall is represented well at the Olympic Games.”
In preparation for the 2024 games, Powell has been doing his part to stoke the flames. And thanks to him, on Saturday, July 23, a number of Olympic hopefuls from the East Coast as well as a few rising stars from the Midwest will gather in the Holy City. The general idea is to battle it out for prize money, bragging rights and to “see who reigns supreme” at this art.
This special multimedia show, The Elements, will go down at the Charleston Pour House from 4 p.m. until closing. Breaking acts will go back-and-forth from the deck stage to the main stage with featured music performances by MIKE L!VE, C. Shreve the Professor, SK, the Novelist and Cypher University — plus a one-on-one breaking battle with a $500 grand prize, Graffiti by Illtac and a Scratch DJ Showcase.
“The fact that we are able to throw an event like this in Charleston is a dream come true,” Powell said. “I can’t wait for the people in our city to see what we see every time we go out of town to represent, and for them to see the level that the dancers in their own backyard are at. Ultimately, I’m also hoping that this event will spark more interest in breakin’ in Charleston so that we can expand our community and keep the fire burning strong.
“At this point in my career I’m only as good as my last event,” Powell said. “I’m always learning and I’m always a student. I’m so thankful for my crew for keeping me grounded and always believing in me on this journey of mine.”

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - The city of Goose Creek and the South Carolina Department of Transportation are working together to put up a stoplight at St. James Avenue at Myers Road where residents have reported multiple accidents.
There are a few neighborhoods off of that road, and people in the area were excited to hear about the project. The actual project likely won’t be completed until the end of 2023, but the plans are in motion.
Thomas Garter lives nearby and says the sooner a light is put up the better.
“It’s hectic in the morning and the late afternoon coming from work. I have seen several accidents,” Garter said.
SCDOT officials said a traffic analysis found the volume in that area is too high, so a signal has been approved and is in the design phase.
Construction will likely begin in October and could take up to 15 months.
Caleb and Allen are friends who like to play basketball at a nearby church after school, and they say they have seen accidents happen at the intersection, and people often cut through the church parking lot to avoid the line of cars.
“There’s traffic, and every time we play they cut through [the parking lot] instead of waiting. I’ve seen a lot of accidents,” Caleb said.
“The bus will be super late to school due to the accidents,” Allen said.
The department of transportation will build a mast arm style light which will cost between $250,000 and $350,000. SCDOT and Goose Creek have agreed to share the cost with the department of transportation building the standard steel poles for the traffic signals.
The city is interested in having mast arms extend over the intersection to which the signals would be mounted. Goose Creek has agreed to pay for the mast arms.
“I’ve been waiting to see our light here since I was 6, because I’ve lived here for a while with the traffic and accidents. I just hope they get better,” said Caleb.
The project is on Tuesday night’s Goose Creek City Council meeting agenda with the administration department expected to speak on the issue.
