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.
Instantaneous Hot Water Heaters
Instantaneous hot water heaters, or tankless water heaters as they’re more commonly known as are very popular with homeowners.
For many people, instantaneous hot water heaters biggest benefit is they consume less energy. Because there is no tank of water to be constantly kept hot, they don’t lose as much energy as regular tank water heaters.
The biggest drawback to instantaneous hot water heaters is their higher cost to purchase and install than traditional water heaters.
Even though instantaneous hot water heaters can deliver an unlimited amount of hot water, there's a limit to how much water can be dispensed at once. Traditional water heaters deliver as much as the pipes will allow. Instantaneous hot water heaters, on the other hand, need to heat water as it passes through.
