About Hockessin, DE - Happy to be your hometown Heating & Air Conditioning Contractor!

Located in New Castle County, Delaware, Hockessin is a census-designated place with a population of approximately 13,500 residents. Hockessin is most well-known for being a bedroom community, but there are a variety of mushroom farms that operate in the area. The historical roots of Hockessin can be traced back to 1688, and the first Roman Catholic Church in the state was located here. This community is well-known for hosting a variety of Fourth of July activities for local residents and visitors, including a fireworks display, parade, and athletic events.

Hockessin is a modestly sized community, so there are few attractions located here. However, there are a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities available, including trips to the Ashland Nature Center for a hike or to take part in an environmental program, and the Mt. Cuba Center offers beautiful gardens with native plants. The Marshall Steam Museum is also a hidden history gem found in this community, and it offers a variety of engines for viewing. Other notable attractions in the area include Hockessin Memorial Hall, Creations Gallery, and Auburn Valley Park.

Hockessin is found in the northern portions of a humid subtropical climate zone, and the region will experience four different climates during the year. These varied weather conditions leave most Hockessin residents investing in both air conditioning and heating systems. Winters are usually cool to cold with high temperatures that only reach the low-30s, and overnight lows can fall well below the freezing point.

Summers in Hockessin can be very hot and muggy. Average July temperatures will reach the mid-70s, but there are many days in which 90 degree highs occur. Without the right climate control systems, dangerous heat-related illnesses are a real possibility, especially for people battling medical conditions and the elderly. Hockessin residents are wise to ensure their air condition units are in proper working order before the most dangerous weather patterns arrive.
