Every state has its hidden gems. From scenic hikes off of the beaten path to sensational restaurants only the locals know about, every state houses unique treasures, and Delaware is no exception. One of these treasures is the charming and quaint town of Hockessin in New Castle County. Established by a group of families in 1688 near the northwest border of Delaware near Mill Creek, Hockessin has a rich history and is still very family-oriented today. These are just a few of the reasons that make Hockessin a desirable destination.
Is your home too cold during the winter and too warm during the summer? If your house isn’t energy efficient, your heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system will struggle to maintain a comfortable temperature. Drafty windows, insufficient insulation, appliances that use too much electricity and other issues may make your home less efficient and add hundreds or thousands of dollars to your utility bills every year.
