Since the beginning of COVID-19, Blue Ridge Energy has worked to assist our members during this difficult time. With the expiration of Gov. Cooper's Executive Orders 124 and 142, Blue Ridge remains committed in our efforts by continuing to suspend disconnects and waiving penalty and late fees for electric members until October. However, we encourage everyone with a past due balance (including Flexpay members) to call us by August 31 at 1-800-451-5474 to set up a special payment plan or ask us about crisis assistance from the In This Together Relief Fund.

Stacked Stone Fireplace

See Hearths and Fireplaces

If you’re looking for something to give your home a rustic and cozy feel, a stacked stone fireplace is a great way to go. Whether you live in the Arizona desert, or the beaches of Florida, you can give your home a mountain retreat feel by simply installing a stacked stone fireplace. And you can complement your focal point fireplace with other naturalistic elements. Reclaimed wood, floral arrangements and fabrics with an earthy tone, are just a few that pair well with a stacked stone fireplace.

There are many advantages to a stacked stone fireplace. One is that it will increase the value of your home. As the gathering point of your home, a well-designed, inviting fireplace can absolutely sway potential buyers, and help get you a higher asking price. Stacked stone also lasts a long time, and requires very minimal maintenance. When you show off your stacked stone fireplace, many people will think you spent a fortune on it. But in fact, it is an extremely affordable way to go. And lastly, it retains heat. That’s what you call a win-win.
