Frequently Asked Questions
When can my tank be installed?
We strive for timely service and are continually scheduling installations. However, installation times will vary depending on the time of year you request your tank installation. Summer installations can often be scheduled within one or two business days while winter installations may take as long as three or four weeks. A Blue Ridge Energy service technician will contact you to determine a convenient day and time when your tank can be installed.
