SMO Energy

Your home’s heating and cooling systems keep you warm when the weather is cold and cool when the weather is hot. You depend on your home’s comfort system to keep the inside of your house at a pleasant temperature, no matter the season or time of year.

Just as you depend on your home’s HVAC system, though, it also depends on you. From time to time, you might need to schedule a repair or general maintenance to keep your system operating efficiently. If you use heating oil or propane as fuel, you also need to make sure you have oil or propane delivery set up to keep your system from running dry. SMO Energy offers a wide range of HVAC services, including installation and repair, to homes across Anne Arundel County.

HVAC Repair in Anne Arundel County

Your HVAC system might do an excellent job of warming your home in the cooler months and keeping it cool in the warmer months, but the system itself will not last forever. As HVAC systems age, they tend to need more frequent repairs. You can usually recognize the signs that it is time to have a certified, trained technician from SMO Energy take a look at your HVAC system:

  • The system no longer heats or cools the house evenly.
  • You hear strange noises coming from the system.
  • The system cycles on and off frequently or only runs for short periods.
  • The flow of air from the ducts is weak.
  • You are spending more on energy or heating fuel but using the system the same amount.

Air Conditioning Repair

Your Anne Arundel home might have central air conditioning that is separate from your heating system, and there may come a time when you need to hire an air conditioning contractor for system repairs.

Some signs your air conditioning might need repair include:

  • You feel warm air coming out of the ducts, rather than cool air.
  • The system can’t reduce the humidity in your home.
  • You see leaks or puddles near the unit itself.
  • You hear unusual noises, such as scraping or clattering noises.
  • You notice a strange smell, such as a musty odor.

Furnace Repair

If you have a gas or oil-burning furnace in your home, it might also require periodic repair. One sure sign that your furnace needs attention is if you seem to be going through more fuel than usual. If you need to schedule more frequent oil or propane deliveries or if you get your monthly utility bill and notice that is much higher than in previous years, your furnace might be at fault.

Whether you need furnace, HVAC or central air conditioning repair, the sooner you have an expertly trained technician inspect the issue, the better. You will end up spending less on energy and increase your home’s comfort and air quality with a system that works as it should.

Air Conditioning Installation in Anne Arundel County

Summer in Anne Arundel County can get pretty hot and humid, and simple window air conditioning units might not be up to the task of keeping everyone comfortable. SMO Energy’s technicians are a team of certified air conditioning installers who can help you select the right air conditioner for your home and install it for you as well.

If your home already has central air conditioning, now might be the perfect time to upgrade to a new system, especially if your current unit is older and no longer working as efficiently. If your air conditioning system is requiring frequent repairs, a new system can likely save you time and money.

Signs It Is Time for a New Air Conditioner

Your home’s existing air conditioner is likely to give you signs that is it time for a replacement:

  • Your utility bill is higher than usual.
  • Your home is not as cool as it should be.
  • The system cycles on and off frequently.
  • The air conditioner seems to always be running.
  • The system is more than 10-years-old.

How to Choose the Right Air Conditioning Unit for Your Home

The type of air conditioner that is right for your home depends on several factors, including the size of your house and whether you have ductwork installed already or not. If you live in a house without ductwork, a ductless split system might be the most cost-effective option for you. Split systems have a compressor and condenser unit that lives outdoors and an air handler that is inside the house, usually mounted on the wall. Ductless split systems can also be good options if you want to install air conditioning in an addition to your home.

If your home already has ductwork, a package system, which might connect to your home’s heating system, can be an appropriate choice. The size of your home will influence the size of the air conditioner that will be most effective. During an energy consultation, a certified technician from SMO Energy will measure your home and recommend the right air conditioner size for your space.

Propane Delivery in Anne Arundel County

Propane is a clean-burning fuel that can power your home’s HVAC system, and furnace. Like heating oil, propane gets delivered to your home and is stored in a tank on your property. Compared to other heating fuel options, propane offers several benefits. It burns more efficiently than other fuels, so you end up spending less to keep your home comfortable. Appliances that run on propane might also have a longer life compared to those that use other forms of energy.

SMO Energy offers several options for customers in Anne Arundel County who wish to receive propane delivery. You can choose the automatic delivery option. The schedule delivery option, where we will refill your propane tank based on a predetermined schedule. Or the will-call option, meaning you call us whenever you need to set up your next fuel delivery.

With automatic delivery, we monitor your propane tank for you and send in a new delivery of fuel whenever the level in the tank dips below a certain amount. Automatic delivery helps ensure you never run out of fuel and takes one item off of your to-do list.

We also offer convenient payment plans so that you do not have to pay in one large lump sum for your home’s heating fuel. Our SmartPay program lets you divide up the cost of propane, tank rental and any service agreements you have with us into 12 equal installments. You can pay your monthly bill with a check or credit card. If you choose to sign up for the SmartPay Plus program, your monthly payment will be automatically withdrawn from your bank account.
