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.
Nothing brings a sense of warmth and hominess to your family home quite like gas fireplaces. But they also have many things going for them. First and foremost, is the extreme ease of use. They can literally be turned on and off with the push of a button. Heck, some even come with a remote control. There’s no more swinging the ax to chop log after log. There’s no more stacking the logs neatly in a pile, only to have them attract snakes, or be soaked with rain. No more having to go out to the woodpile in the dead of winter.
Gas fireplaces are very low maintenance. An annual inspection to make sure your fuel connections are still operational is all you need to do to keep them in working order. Gas fireplaces burn very cleanly, which is healthy for both you, and the environment. Gas fireplaces also provide constant heat. If a wood burning fire goes out, then so does the heat source. But a gas fireplace keeps your home warm throughout.
