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

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.

If you find yourself saying, "that sounds like my AC unit," it might be time for a new air conditioning installation.

Graze Craze, a new charcuterie concept known for crafting grazing boards and boxes, has opened its first South Carolina location at 3373 South Morgans Point Road in Mount Pleasant.
The new storefront is located in the National Crossing shopping center at the main entrance of the Charleston National neighborhood, according to a news release. Graze Craze is a part of Big Flavor Brands, the food service division of Starpoint Brands, a family of companies affiliated with United Franchise Group.
At Graze Craze, charcuterie experts, known as grazologists, design arrangements that feature an array of ingredients that are ideal for grazing, like fresh fruits and vegetables, premium meats and cheeses, artisanal sweets, nuts and more, the release stated.
The Mount Pleasant Graze Craze is the only one of its kind in the Charleston area, and the franchise owners behind the new store Keith and Kendra Lovas are thrilled to share something completely new with the community they call home, the release stated.

The Lovas enjoy playing a role in their community with Kendra working at a local elementary school and Keith coaching youth sports teams through the Mount Pleasant Recreation Department, according to the release.

The Lovas are also interested in bolstering regional business development through their involvement with the Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce.
Graze Craze charcuterie arrangements incorporate an assortment of flavors, like the popular Gone Grazey board, balanced to provide a bit of everything – a mix of cured meats, premium cheeses, crackers, fresh produce, nuts and more. The Vegegrazian is designed with a medley of fresh fruits and vegetables for anyone embracing a plant-based lifestyle.
The artisan-inspired charcuterie offerings at Graze Craze are available in different size options, from Char-Cutie-Cups and Picnic Boxes for nibbling to sharing-size boards with enough fresh food to feed a large party, the release stated.

A Charleston workout site owner who transformed an old warehouse into a gym is now eyeing East Cooper for a new ground-up fitness center.
Ethos Athletic Club wants to build a two-story, 20,065-square-foot facility at the juncture of Hungryneck Boulevard and Midtown Avenue in Mount Pleasant.
Ethos, founded by workout enthusiast, Charleston native and Citadel graduate Joey Welling, opened its first location in 21,000 square feet on Huger Street beside High Wire Distilling in 2021. That space had previously operated as a storage site for an events company and decades ago as a backup warehouse for the long-gone Sears department store.
The proposed Mount Pleasant location will be new construction. The town’s Design Review Board will consider preliminary approval of the site, landscape and architecture on Dec. 6.
Plans to relocate a Charleston grocery store are moving forward with new design plans presented to the city.
Eighteen months after the property owner first indicated the planned relocation of Publix supermarket in Ashley Landing Shopping Center, the city’s Design Review Board is set to review the proposed project Dec. 4.
Charlotte-based retail center owner Faison wants to move the grocer from an existing 48,391-square-foot free-standing structure between Sam Rittenberg Boulevard and Old Towne Road to a 48,387-square-foot store connected to the east side of the main shopping center.
To make that happen, Faison wants to demolish 130,180 square feet on the retail destination’s east side where Dollar Tree and Big Lots are located and tear down a 12,820-square-foot structure on the back side of the shopping center.
The demolished portions will make room for the grocery store, a 14,170-square-foot retail tenant and space behind the supermarket as a turnaround area for delivery trucks.
Dollar Tree’s lease extends through mid-2024 and Big Lots is leasing month to month, according to Kris Fetter, president and CEO of Faison.
The planned retail portion of the building next to the proposed relocated Publix is not being marketed until Faison’s plan works its way through the city’s review process, Fetter said.
The future of the existing Publix site hasn’t been determined. Apartments were planned on the site at one time, but the proposal received a cool reception from West Ashley residents.
Fetter said the company is willing to work with the city on a collaborative approach to redeveloping the property, including making the site more user-friendly for bicyclists and pedestrians.
A new three-story building over parking is in the works for Daniel Island.
The proposed 17,865-square-foot structure on three levels above almost 6,000 square feet of parking is planned for 211 Seven Farms Drive.
The building will include space for three retail shops on the first floor and two residential units each on the top two levels. Sixteen parking spaces are proposed.
The property is owned by SLS Development LLC, which paid $680,000 for the 0.34-acre site in August, according to Berkeley County land records.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — In an emotional dedication ceremony Friday at Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park, first responders and community members came together to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
One of those in attendance was Chevalo Wilsondebriano, a retired New York City Fire Department, who was working when the call came in.
“I was working at my station with the New York City Fire Department that’s Battalion 50 out in Queens," Wilsondebriano said. "And a call came over for an explosion at the World Trade Center. I didn't know what it was, but I had to start responding in this big disaster ambulance."
Mount Pleasant unveils 9/11 monument, bringing a piece of New York to South Carolina (WCIV)
They are retelling memories of 9/11.
“I looked up, and the tower was twisting and then coming down, and I had to just turn around and start running for my life like everyone else,” Wilsondebriano said.
Twenty-two years later, a new monument brought a piece of New York to South Carolina by way of Town of Mount Pleasant Councilmember Gary Santos.
“I asked the fire chief up in New York if he would send me a piece of the eye beam from the World Trade Center," Santos said. "He obliged me, and he sent it to me. It's been a long time coming."
Santos said it took over a year to raise money to build this memorial. But it was a project he was determined to complete.
“This was the best way I thought that we could honor it for these firefighters and first responders and people who put their life on the line every day for us," Santos said. "So hopefully when people come by, and they get, and they see this, they remember."
And for first responders who were at the scene, the emotions ran high.
BE THE FIRST TO COMMENT
“It almost brings tears to my eyes,” Wilsondebriano said. “It means so much to myself as a first responder that day. And for so many first responders, all around the country, and especially from New York, it means everything that people here, all the way in Charleston, will remember."

Tell me about your professional background and how you feel it makes you a good fit to be a council member.
I’ve been teaching in Charleston County since 2016. This is my 24th year teaching. The local aspect of teaching, most of my career has been in teaching elementary school, but still the local aspect of working in the community where I live has always been something that I really like. Now I’m in North Charleston, so it’s the greater community where I live. I think this is a theme of why I’ve chosen to run for Town Council because I would like to see Mount Pleasant make its own decisions on a local level and be responsible for them and with citizens participating in the process. I lived in France for seven years and I have a Bachelor of Science in French and psychology and a master’s degree in educational technology. I’ve just always been part of the local community and have worked well with others.
What do you feel is the biggest issue facing the town today, and what plans do you have to address this?
I have a daughter, a six-year-old, and we went to James Island yesterday to go rock climbing in James Island County Park. I would like to see the green spaces improved in Mount Pleasant to make it something where travelers don’t have to go across town to go to the (County) Park. I know that there’s a bike path in … Laurel Hill County Park and just a dirt road going in a half-mile circle and there are things that we can put back there that would be places you can take your kids and take your family.
The other thing is I think that health all across the United States is a problem. We pay more for healthcare. We have more healthcare issues related to obesity and diet. I would like to be somebody who spreads the message of healthy eating and healthy lifestyles lead to better lives. We have a great little local market there at Boone Hall...we have the Farmers Market on Tuesday and Boone Hall is open the rest of the week.
The results of the Public Input Matters survey found that throughout all seven districts in town, respondents feel that traffic in Mount Pleasant needs to be improved. What are some concrete solutions that you feel can address this?
The traffic in Mount Pleasant and housing in Mount Pleasant — I don’t know if ‘victims of our own success’ is the right word for it. We have a very unique geography here. We are a virtual island in that there’s no shortcuts. There’s one way in and one way out. You may come across I-526 or I-26 or you go north towards McClellanville and Georgetown up (Highway) 41. There just isn’t room.
I know that the Town Council has a plan and they’ve already hired a company to look into certain traffic solutions. As a new council member, I’m not sure if I would be able to offer anything different to what they have already decided on.
Another area Public Input Matters survey takers responded to was housing availability. Forty-one percent of respondents felt that affordable housing options should be increased. How do you feel this can be accomplished?
I think it speaks well to the people in Mount Pleasant that we want things for people like affordable housing, but whether or not there is a feasible solution to providing that affordable housing — where are we going to put affordable housing? It makes sense that people want affordable housing but do they want the affordable housing in their backyard?
I want to live locally, I want to buy locally, want to shop locally, but we can’t escape the fact that a lot of our local decisions are made on a state and national and global level. How does Mount Pleasant make affordable housing when the interest rates are 7.75 percent? There are things happening on a national level that we just can’t control that can make our job of creating affordable housing next to impossible.
Is there anyone who has served as a role model to you, either from politics, past experiences or family members, that you look to and consider while you run for office?
One thing my dad always taught us was sometimes doing the right thing is the hardest thing to do, but you can take solace in the fact that it’s the right thing to do. I am a part owner of a restaurant in Washington, D.C. with my brother Eric and when Washington D.C. decided to impose the vaccine mandate on restaurants … we were the only restaurant in Washington, D.C. to actively say no, we’re not going to check people’s health papers. It was very hard on my brother to do that, and he’s such a big part of the local community. What I just really admired was his courage and even though it financially wasn’t the best decision. Financially, it wasn’t a great decision, but it was the right decision to make and his principles are something that I truly admire and I try to follow that example in my own life.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – A new push by the cruise industry to sail ships out of Mount Pleasant is grabbing the attention of town leaders.
According to Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie and Town Councilwoman Guang Ming Whitley, a lobbyist paid by the cruise industry is aiming to bring the ships to Patriots Point.
Councilwoman Whitley said they are proposing to build a 30,000 square-foot terminal and a 1200 car parking garage. The councilwoman and the mayor both share the same stance and firmly oppose the idea.
“The people that are pushing this have no interest in this land, they have no leasehold stake in this land, and I think what’s offensive about this is they are trying to push an issue on the town about land that they have no right to be pushing this issue on,” said Mayor Haynie.
Mayor Haynie said state law doesn’t even allow for ships of that kind at Patriots Point.
“Once this got out, I’ve heard from so many residents, ‘don’t ever have cruise ships in the Town of Mount Pleasant,’” the mayor told News 2.
Meanwhile, Councilman Gary Santos had a different take.
“The benefit is, it will create more jobs for people in Mount Pleasant, definitely. And it will create revenue for, you know, the Medal of Honor Museum and the Yorktown and the business over there,” the councilman said.
He also predicted there would be certain regulations such as noise limitations.
South Carolina Ports Authority President and CEO Barbara Melvin weighed in on the potential for cruises in Mount Pleasant as well.
“We will continue to have concerns unless there is a permit application that thoroughly addresses impacts to safe navigation in the harbor, as well as impacts to operations and maintenance of the channel. We encourage those pursuing this to gauge support of Mount Pleasant, as that is a critical component.”
While this proposal has yet to appear on a town agenda and will likely come across many obstacles if it does, Santos said he wants to hear from the people of Mount Pleasant.
“We need to put that out there and let the citizens decide what they want to do and not just have the mayor and one councilmember come out with their opinion and try to stop something that may be really good for Mount Pleasant,” said Councilman Santos.
This conversation comes as the cruising industry in the City of Charleston gets ready for a shift. The contract between the South Carolina Ports Authority and the Carnival Cruise Lines will come to an end in 2024.
