About Bishop, GA – Happy to be Your Hometown Heating & Air Conditioning Contractor
Located in Oconee County, Bishop is a small town with only about 250 residents. With only 0.8 square miles of total area, this town is also small geographically. Agriculture is the primary industry in Bishop, and when combined with antiques and art, it is said that visitors to Bishop can enjoy an authentic Georgia experience. Bishop is also a quick drive to neighboring Watkinsville along U.S. Highway 441.
As a small town, there are only a few notable attractions located in Bishop. Many visitors choose to stay at the Pine Lake RV Campground. There are several antique dealers and shops located here, including Frosted Lion Antiques, Book Worm, Reed’s Odds and Ends. When you are leaving the town after your trip, don’t forget to check out one of the roadside stands for fresh vegetables and fruits.
The climate in Bishop is humid throughout the year, but during the summer months, it can be especially uncomfortable. High temperatures tend to reach the mid-90s, and these muggy conditions make it vital for residents to have a cool place with a reliable air conditioner to retreat. Not only will the right air conditioner make a big difference in your comfort level throughout the season, but it can also improve the quality of your indoor air – a major benefit to people with seasonal allergies and other respiratory conditions.
Winter weather in Bishop tends to be mild compared to other parts of the U.S., and average high temperatures reach the low-50s. Snowfall is rare, and on average, this region of the state only sees a few inches each year. However, residents still need to be prepared for colder weather, especially since overnight lows often fall into the 30s. Residents will need to have access to a furnace or heat pump at home in order to keep their families and properties safe.
