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.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — Lucy Beckham High School opened its doors in 2020 with only 9th and 10th graders.
This year will be the school's first with all four grades.
Before the first student steps on campus, the school is already over capacity.
“Really at this point, honestly we just have no room," says Pamela Jouan-Goldman.
Pamela Jouan-Goldman serves as the board chair for Mount Pleasant's District 2 Constituent Board.
She says before Lucy Beckham opened, the Constituent Board felt a larger school building was needed.
“Before this school was even built, the D2 board did write a letter to the county asking for the school to be built of capacity of 2,000 children, but that did not happen," said Jouan-Goldman.
Instead, the school was built for just under 1,500 students, with 21 per classroom.
Enrollment this year is forecast to be over 1,700.
The school district's solution? So-called "cottages."
“We wish we didn’t have go down that direction. We wish we could have kept the growth more under control," Jouan-Goldman said.
A school district spokesperson says the move is temporary, and they expect enrollment at Lucy Beckham to go down in the future.
Jouan-Goldman doesn't agree.
“I do not see that number falling anytime soon, only because Mount Pleasant is such a big draw for families to come in," said Jouan-Goldman.
Another problem are transfer requests.
Jouan-Goldman says the Constituent Board has repeatedly denied transfer requests for Lucy Beckham to prevent overcrowding, only to be overruled by the main school board.
“We already knew we had a very tight margin, so we tried very hard to limit the amount of transfers. Unfortunately, we don’t always have a chance to have those transfer limitations realized, because our transfers can be appealed by the county board," said Jouan-Goldman.
She thinks adding these mobile units will open the door to more transfer requests.
“And with every transfer period, we get more and more requests for Lucy Beckham," Jouan-Goldman said.
Jouan-Goldman also says that Carolina Park Middle School in North Mount Pleasant is going through a similar issue and the school will re-zone for the second time in two years. There will be a meeting to discuss the re-zoning plans at the middle school on August 23 at 6 p.m. The meeting will be open to all.

A Mount Pleasant business that’s received millions of dollars from investors to develop a tabletop dishwasher has been placed into receivership by a South Carolina judge.
Heatworks Technologies agreed to the move — an alternative to bankruptcy in which a third-party custodian could take over the finances — as part of a lawsuit filed by an affiliate of Charleston-based IAG Capital Partners that said it loaned the manufacturer nearly $10.5 million.
IAG Fund 1 LLC sued Heatworks in April, alleging the company inflated sales projections and abruptly halted production of its products — a tankless water heater and a tabletop dishwasher called Tetra. Heatworks agreed in a consent order filed this month to allow a receiver take over the business.
Judge Mikell Scarborough, master-in-equity for Charleston County, appointed Atlanta-based restructuring firm Aurora Management Partners as receiver. David Baker, Aurora’s managing partner, did not respond to a request for comment.
Heatworks founder Jerry Callahan said his company and IAG “have agreed to work on a restructuring plan” but declined to comment further.
Under terms of the court order, the receiver must file a financial report that includes Heatworks’ most recent bank statement within 30 days of taking over the company and every quarter afterward.
Heatworks has spent more than a decade trying to bring its products to market. While the dishwasher has earned praise at consumer electronics shows, it has not moved beyond the preliminary stages of production.
IAG said in court documents that it grew suspicious of Heatworks’ financial dealings late last year when the company filed a business plan that showed projected sales of 30,222 dishwashers and water heaters and revenue topping $18.7 million. After the fund questioned the figures, Heatworks came back three months later with “significantly revised” projections of 10,396 sales and $7 million in revenue.
The Meeting Street-based investment group said it also learned that Heatworks stopped funding production of the Tetra and had laid off six of its 14 employees in February, including production, sales and management positions. The job cuts were attributed to “insufficient revenue” and the company’s inability “to obtain an additional capital infusion or other funding,” according to the complaint.
The revised financial projections, layoffs and halted production violated a funding agreement, IAG Fund said, adding that if management changes weren’t made “there is an imminent danger” that Heatworks “will soon become insolvent — if it has not done so already.”
Among the other investors in the appliance maker is SC Launch, the investment arm of the state-chartered South Carolina Research Authority, which provides money and loans to companies to support growth within the technology industry. Bob Quinn, SCRA’s executive director, said no public money was given to Heatworks. Instead, the company received $450,000 from a fund made up of private contributions.
Callahan told The Post and Courier in December 2020 that Heatworks had 25,000 customers signed up to buy a Tetra, and he said production delays were caused by problems finding the right detergent mix to work in the scaled-down appliance. At the time, the company had just announced a deal with German chemical firm BASF to produce recyclable detergent cartridges for the product.
BASF reaffirmed that partnership in January, saying it had “completed development of the detergent self-dosing cartridge system.”
Tetra was intended for use in small living spaces like apartments and dorm rooms — its size is similar to a toaster oven — and for singles or couples who don’t use many dishes and don’t want a full-size appliance. The price point has been marketed at $399.
The dishwasher would not need to be hooked up to a water source. Instead, consumers would pour about three quarts of water into the machine, which would empty the liquid into a discharge container at the end of the wash and rinse cycles. The water would be heated with electrical charges similar to the tankless water heater the company developed.

MT. PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – A proposed retail village in North Mt. Pleasant is raising concerns for some residents nearby.
Plans for the nearly 15-acre property located across Highway 17 from Oakland Market and Lowes include a racquet club with tennis and pickleball courts, retail, restaurants, office space, and a luxury pet boarding facility.
Developers say it will add to the livability in town.
A proposal and results of an impact assessment were presented to the town’s planning committee on Tuesday.
“The primary anchor of this is going to be a racquet facility,” said Mt. Pleasant Councilman Jake Rambo. “A racquetball, tennis facility which I think will be a great addition to the Town of Mt. Pleasant.”
But Mayor Will Haynie says the current proposal is different from the original plan that was presented to Mt. Pleasant Town Council a few years ago.
“These other things, all though there was a small retail component of that, the dog kennel and all that is new. And what we saw today is the tennis center, which is why we originally brought it into the town, is not in phase 1 that’s in phase 2,” said Mayor Haynie. “How do we know that we’ll ever even have the tennis because now the dog kennel and the retail are phase one and that’s a very different thing than I voted for when we brought into the town years ago.”
The pet boarding facility is raising concerns from the church next door, The Church at LifePark.
“We’re very concerned with the nuisance noise of dogs,” said Robbie Wiksell, a church member.
He describes the church campus as a quiet refuge away from a busy town and believes the pet facility will negatively impact that.
“We’re concerned we’re being set up to be continuously annoyed and in conflict with the dog development. We will then be in conflict with the town continuously asking for relief,” said Wiksell.
He hopes that town leaders will reconsider the location of the pet facility to be as far from the church as possible.
The developer switched the outdoor kennel portion of the boarding facility to the other side of the building further from the church, but both Mayor Haynie and Councilmember Rambo say the livability impact needs to be looked at further before the plans are set in stone.
“We have to look hard at what’s the buffer? What’s the placement of something like a kennel that could generate a lot of noise for a church next door,” questioned the mayor.
The planning committee approved the impact assessment and moved to push the proposal forward to be heard in front of the full town council next Tuesday, July 12.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — Since the Crab Bank restoration project was completed at the end of 2021, conservation partners have watched hundreds of sea and shorebirds make their return.
Crab Bank Bird Sanctuary is in the middle of the Charleston Harbor.
After Hurricane Irma took out the last of the highest grounds in 2017, conservation partners came together to redevelop and expand the nesting area nearby.
"It's been a really great experience being able to see the community come together to provide a new bird sanctuary for our sea and shorebirds," said Coastal Expeditions education director Katie Morrison.
It is still the middle of nesting season, but since the completion of the restoration project, they have seen hundreds of birds return to Crab Bank.
Oystercatchers were the first to come back with the first single nest found on April 1.
According to Janet Thibault with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, over 300 nests and pairs of other species have been spotted, as well, including nearly 100 pairs of gull-billed terns, just over 200 pairs of least terns and more than 200 black skimmer nests.
"With sea level rise, and storm surge and development, when the old Crab Bank went away, it really was hard for our other seabirds to find a place to go that they could be safe and to nest, so having this new Crab Bank here is going to be really, really important for our seabirds and shorebirds," Morrison said.
While it might be tempting, it is important to not land on the island. Make sure to observe from a distance.
"These birds really do need their space. They get disturbed really easily, so making sure that we don't land on Crab Bank between March 15 to October 15 will allow for those birds to rest and to protect their young without any disturbances."
What is a safe distance?
"We always say never make a bird fly if you can," said Morrison. "If you're on your boat or if you're kayaking and you are wanting to observe the birds, just make sure that you're a respectful space away from Crab Bank. Use your binoculars to see them closer up; don't get off on the island during that time of the year."
Watching this restoration project brought Katie Morrison joy to watch the birds return.
"Being able to come back out and see the birds out there having a safe place to nest and to rest has been an amazing experience so far."

Republic FC - The Latest
The magic of the Open Cup continued for Republic FC on Wednesday. As was all too predictable, a tightly fought contest with Sporting Kansas City finished scoreless, pushing the match to a penalty shootout where Sacramento took the win. The defensive effort from the Quails was tremendous all night - blocking 14 shots from Sporting while Danny Vitiello put in a Herculean effort between the sticks. Heart rates were high, but in the end, the moment didn't get the best of them.
As a busy stretch continues for Mark Briggs' Men, Sacramento will look to get anything from Saturday's contest they can. Every player on the roster will need to be ready to contribute, but Sacramento's proven they can compete no matter who's on the pitch repeatedly this season. With the momentum of two strong defensive performances in tow, a strong follow-up performance is certainly possible.
Know Your Opponent
Entering in a run of good form, Charleston will surely challenge Sacramento on all fronts. After being shut out in three straight contests from July 2-13, the club has turned around and netted six scores in its last two games. Most recently, they kept pace with Colorado Springs' high-octane offensive attack in a 3-3 draw, netting the equalizer in stoppage time.
The season's first half has not been too kind to the South Carolina club, who has claimed just 13 points on the season. Tough times in June and July resulted in five straight losses. However, they've continued to compete night in and night out with a talented attacking unit led by striker Augustine Williams. The former San Diego Loyal loanee has netted 10 scores on the year, tied for the fifth-most in the entire league.
Head to Head
The match is set to be the second all time between Republic FC and Charleston Battery. The two sides haven't faced off since Sacramento's inaugural season - a match on August 27, 2014 that saw Rodrigo Lopez put in a brace at Heart Health Park in a 3-1 win. On the stat sheet this season, Charleston enters having conceded the second most scores in the league with 44, compared to a scant 19 from Sacramento. Battery has been slightly better on the offensive end, netting 24 scores to Sacramento's 22 and converting on 12% of their attempts.
