Charleston HVAC company moving to North Charleston

A well-known Lowcountry heating, ventilation and air-conditioning company is moving into new digs.

Next month, LimRic Plumbing, Heating & Air will leave its home at 1920-G Dunbar St. in West Ashley for a new 10,000-square-foot facility at 4546 Dorchester Road in North Charleston.

The new building will include a 900-square-foot customer service training room, gym, updated technology, collaborative office space, conference rooms and a large warehouse with equipment for all HVAC brands. It will also be smoke-free and use a 6,000-gallon rainwater collection system for landscaping and plumbing.

LimRic’s president, David Miles, said the new location allows the business to have convenient access to more than 30 suppliers, making it easy to stay stocked in the latest HVAC and plumbing supplies.

“Our new building is positioned between I-26 and I-526 so we can better serve our customers quickly and efficiently, from Edisto all the way to the Awendaw,” Miles said.

A ribbon-cutting and grand opening will be announced once construction is completed.
