Since the beginning of COVID-19, Blue Ridge Energy made the decision to suspend disconnects, waive late fees and offer special payment plans to assist our members and customers during this difficult time. While the decision had already been made to extend these special circumstances until August, Gov. Cooper issued a new Executive Order 142 on May 30 outlining the same timeline. We encourage everyone (including Flexpay members) to continue paying your energy bill to avoid a large balance at the end of this crisis. Call us at 1-800-451-5474 to set up a special payment plan.
40 Gallon Water Heaters
The 40 gallon water heater is a popular size in many homes today. Choose from natural gas or electric models. 40 gallons is the perfect sized tank for homes or apartments with two to four people. Generally, they are found in homes with one and a half bathrooms.
Running out of hot water with a 40 gallon water heater? It’s easy to upgrade to a bigger tank. The lifespan of a normal hot water heater is around 10 to 15 years. After that, corrosion and sediment build-up inside the tank starts to be a problem.
