7 Spring HVAC Tips: Air Conditioning Mount Pleasant

7 Spring HVAC Tips: Air Conditioning Mount Pleasant


The signs of spring make for a beautiful display in the Lowcountry—as we write this, brilliant pink, white and purple azaleas are making a bold and cheerful statement along country roadsides and in manicured gardens. Spring means blooms, and it also means pollen (yuck). We’ve made it through the first big wave of pine and cedar pollen dusting the landscape and traveling through the air. Perhaps the change in seasons and temperature nudged you towards a full-on spring cleaning operation, inside and out. As experts in Air Conditioning in Mount Pleasant and the greater Charleston area, we’re sharing our spring cleaning tips for a happy, healthy HVAC system. Keep reading for seven easy-to-implement ideas.


  1. Fresh Filters Are a Must
    We sometimes feel like a broken record when we mention the importance of swapping out your filters with new ones, but this tip is easy, inexpensive and invaluable! For most basic filters, monthly is the way to go. If you are unsure, refer to the recommendations provided by your system’s manufacturer (keep in mind the timeline also varies by filter type).
  2. Clean Those Grates
    Even though you stay on top of replacing filters, you may notice the HVAC grates in your home would benefit from a good cleaning. There are a few ways to go about this, from a swiffer dusting or vacuuming to removing the grates and hosing them down outside (be sure they are dry before you put them back in place).
  3. Check Vent Covers
    Along with the main system grates, you will want to clean the vent covers throughout your home. Inspect each room and give the vents special attention. A quick dusting or vacuuming should do the trick
  4. Level Up Your Indoor Air Quality
    The quality of the air inside your home impacts how you feel and can be problematic for allergy sufferers and others. The ECHA team is knowledgeable about high-quality air cleaners, air purifiers and air filtration systems. Making this upgrade helps to remove harmful airborne contaminants from your indoor air. We will walk you through your options and help you decide what is best for your health and your family.
  5. Sparkling Floors
    The less dust in a home, the more comfortable the air. Beyond sweeping, mopping and dusting, give the baseboards a nice wipe down and have your carpets professionally cleaned.
  6. Turn Your Attention Outdoors
    Be sure your system is free from debris, whether lawn debris or overgrown shrubs. Keep porches and patios clean to reduce the amount of dirt that is tracked inside. Swap out or clean doormats and have your siding pressure washed routinely. Don’t neglect the dust and cobwebs that have a way of gathering around outdoor light fixtures.
  7. Schedule a Seasonal HVAC Tune-Up
    Last on the list but perhaps most crucial, the fall and spring are easy-to-remember times to schedule HVAC system maintenance. As experts in heating and Air Conditioning in Mount Pleasant and beyond, the ECHA team is at your service! During your system’s check-up, we will inspect electrical connections, make sure that there is enough refrigerant in the system, check the condenser for proper airflow and ensure the blower inside is providing enough air flow over the evaporator.
