There is always something to do in Charleston, especially when the weather warms up this spring! When our expert technicians and office staff aren’t performing AC maintenance at your home in Charleston this season, the following places are where you can find us!

Cooper River Bridge Run

Many of the Anchor Heating and Air technicians participate in the Cooper River Bridge Run each year! The Cooper River Bridge Run is a 10K race in Charleston running across the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge on the first Saturday each April. The race draws in many locals and tourists and fundraises for various charity organizations, such as the Alzheimer’s Association and MUSC Hollings Cancer Center. The Cooper River Bridge Run promotes a healthy lifestyle and has a tremendous impact on the Charleston community, because the hospitality and tourism industry and other local businesses generate $33 million dollars in one weekend. We encourage our neighbors in the Charleston area to participate in this 10K race and support the local community and charity organizations!
