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 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.

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.

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.

Common Signs That You Need a New AC Install in North Charleston, 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.

 HVAC Repair North Charleston, SC

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

North Charleston 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 North Charleston, 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.

 Heating And AC Services North Charleston, SC
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.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston County School District confirmed Tuesday it has placed a newly-promoted principal on administrative leave.

Carolyn Anderson, the principal of Septima P. Clark Academy was placed on leave pending an investigation, district spokesman Andy Pruitt said Tuesday.

However, because it is “a personnel issue,” Pruitt said the district declined to reveal what is being investigated.

Anderson was promoted to the principal position on Friday after serving as interim principal of the school since the beginning of the school year. Throughout her career, she held positions at a number of other Charleston County School District schools.

The district says the decision to place her on administrative leave has nothing to do with fights at her school reported Monday.

District officials said multiple fights placed the school on “hold” for a time Monday afternoon. Charleston County deputies helped bring the fights under control. It was not immediately clear whether anyone was seriously injured or how many students were involved. The district would respond to the incidents per its discipline protocol, Pruitt said.

Anderson began her career in the district in 1989 at Burke High School as a teacher assistant, according to a release. She later served as a Career and Technical Education teacher for several years before joining the staff at Brentwood Middle School in North Charleston as an Advancement via Individual Determination teacher.

In 2009, she joined Morningside Middle School as a leadership teacher where she designed a curriculum around character and leadership skills. Two years later, she became an assistant administrator at the district’s Sixth Grade Academy at the Ron McNair campus before taking a position as a career and technology teacher at Jerry Zucker Middle School.

She became an assistant principal at North Charleston High School in 2017.

She holds a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from South Carolina State University, a Master of Business Administration from Webster University, and a Master of Education in Secondary Administration and Supervision from Charleston Southern University.

Anderson has also served as a South Carolina Teacher Mentor from 2008 to 2017 and is the founder and director of Anderson Alpha Angels, LLC, an all-girls’ elementary, middle and high school team program designed to cultivate the personal strengths of young women through stepping, the district’s release states.

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — Elbit Systems of America, a company that helps manufacture products for the United States Department of Defense and Homeland Security, broke ground Wednesday on a new 135,000 square-foot facility in North Charleston

The facility is located on Sightline Drive, right off Palmetto Commerce Parkway. The facility will focus on building ground combat vehicles for the U.S. military and its allies.

Leaders say this new facility could make the Lowcountry a centerpiece for defense manufacturing in the U.S. And representatives with Elbit say North Charleston’s prime location near the port, along with the area’s heavy veteran and military community made this partnership a perfect fit.

“There's an amazing amount of companies in and around Charleston and across South Carolina that we're going to look to help with these large programs. And so, from our perspective, it was really a strategic decision to move to Charleston,” Vice President of Strategy and Growth Scott Baum said.

The big question many residents are asking: How will this facility impact the Lowcountry?

Charleston County Council officials who said that this is going to be a “Big Deal” for residents in the North Charleston area. This new facility may strengthen Charleston’s involvement in the United States defense manufacturing business.

In addition, the facility is expected to grow North Charleston’s economy by billions of dollars.

Elbit Systems of America is planning to create over 300 jobs in North Charleston, a city where the unemployment has risen by almost 4% since 2019 according to U.S. Census Bureau data.

The new facility is also supposed to have an economic impact of over $380 million for the Lowcountry, with Elbit investing billions of dollars more into local businesses and manufacturing companies.

Charleston County Council Chairman Teddie Pryor said the relationship will be a win-win for the first of its kind facility in the Lowcountry.

"The faith based community folks, as well as charitable organizations, as well as reaching out to the minority community with training, trying to get them on board -- I think it's a win situation," Pryor said. "But if you look at Charleston County as a whole, we've always had a presence when it comes to the military: You look at the Air Force base, or naval base, naval weapons station. So, I think, you know, they saw it as a good fit, as well as I see it as a good fit."

Pryor also said similar projects will come to the Lowcountry.

The facility is expected to be up and running by fall of 2022.

By Matt Dillane (WCIV)

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — The Charleston RiverDogs are helping some young baseball players finish up a game that was halted by shots fired in North Charleston.

On Wednesday, ABC News 4 learned that the minor league team would be hosting a youth game prior to its home contest on May 3rd.

The earlier match will be from 5 p.m. until 6 p.m. and will be a resumption of the game interrupted by gunfire nearby on Monday.

“As a huge supporter of youth baseball, we felt that is was our responsibility to do something for these children that might help them move on from this traumatic experience”, said RiverDogs President and General Manager Dave Echols. “We have a tremendous opportunity, with what we do night in and night out, to help in difficult situations like these. Thankfully, with the help of the city of North Charleston and the North Charleston Recreation Department, we were able to put this special night together quickly.”

Major League Baseball is expected to buy tickets to the game for all three youth teams involved, plus hot a post-game picnic for them.

The Tampa Bay Rays- the RiverDogs MLB affiliate- are sending t-shirts and hats for the children.

“We are pleased that these children and their families will have an opportunity to finish this game at Joseph Riley Park prior to the RiverDogs hosting the Fayetteville Woodpeckers on Tuesday. We hope the experience at The Joe will be a small step towards helping those involved in that frightening incident,” said Peter Woodfork, Major League Baseball’s Senior Vice President of Minor League Operations and Development.

On Monday, a Dixie Youth league baseball game at Pepperhill Park was paused after dozens of shots rang out, sending players, spectators and coaches scrambling for cover.

Witnesses told authorities that multiple vehicles carrying teenagers pulled into a parking lot, and a fistfight preceded the gunshots. No injuries have been reported.

The 15-U softball team that was at the park at the time of the incident will also be part of the May 3 event at The Joe.

North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey has offered a $10,000 reward for the arrest of anyone involved in the shooting.

Police are still looking for suspects.

“The RiverDogs are a true community partner. Following the events of Monday night affecting three of our youth athletic teams, the RiverDogs were among the first to reach out to offer support to the young players and their families,” said North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey. “Playing at The Joe will be a much needed positive and joyful experience for our kids.”
