About Rutherfordton, NC - Happy to be your hometown Heating & Air Conditioning Contractor!

Rutherfordton, North Carolina is a popular town located in Rutherford County. It serves as the county seat and is home to about 4,000 people. Founded in 1787, Rutherfordton is one of western North Carolina’s oldest towns. It played a major role in the gold rush of backcountry North Carolina, especially after the Bechtler family moved here in the 1830s. The old Bechtler House still stands, and visitors can take a trip here to learn more about the private mint that produced over $2 million in gold coins.

There are plenty of things to see and do when traveling to or residing in Rutherfordton. Broad River Gems and Mining offers on-site fossil digging and gum mining, with the gem mine found on the gold-bearing Rocky Broad River. Families may like to visit local farms, including the Cherry Mountain Farm and C-Saw Hill Farm, and the KidSenses Children’s InterACTIVE Museum offers 40 interactive exhibits for little ones of all ages. Racing enthusiasts may like a night out at Harris Motor Speedway, and specialty shops are plentiful with Big Bam Boo Tea Room, Chestnut Forge and Furniture, and Blue Ridge Design & Gift Shop all located within the city limits.

Rutherfordton is found in the Piedmont region of the U.S. and is characterized by a humid subtropical climate zone. Winters here are cool but short, and average daily highs reach about 50 degrees Fahrenheit in January. While these mild daytime temperatures are a bonus for living in the South, overnight lows drop below the freezing point nearly 60 nights per year. Snowfall accumulation is minimal, but residents still need to prepare for the colder temperatures with the right furnace or heat pump at home.

Alternatively, summers in Rutherfordton are hot and humid. Daily highs often reach into the 90s, but sunny skies and high humidity levels make it feel even hotter. Most Rutherfordton residents opt for a central air conditioning system to stay cool throughout the season, as these units are cost-efficient, easily-programmable, and unobtrusive.
