Heating and Oil: Frequently Asked Questions

Residential or home heating oil refers to a highly refined petroleum-based oil. It is a form of liquified petroleum, or LP, gas. Chemically, it is similar to diesel fuel, but they are differentiated through their intended use. Heating oil receives a red dye that shows it is exempt from the federal, state and local taxes that apply to fuel for road use.

Heating oil costs can vary widely based on current crude oil prices, demand and your home’s location. Prices can especially fluctuate in winter months, but you may be able to order fuel before the temperatures drop to avoid some of the highest costs, or use our SmartPay program to make it more manageable.

For a real-time look at heating oil prices in your area, you can try out our fuel cost tool. Enter your zip code to see local home heating oil prices. You can view the current price of heating oil per gallon in MD.

You probably will not have to worry about heating oil that has gone bad unless you have left your tank unused for several years. A tank that is in good condition and has no corrosion, rust, dirt or debris can help keep your oil fresh. Water is something else to look out for. If water enters a tank, it can cause bacteria growth and contribute to the formation of sludge.

Heating oil that has a foul odor, which is not something you’ll find with freshly delivered oil, has probably gone bad or been contaminated. Our technicians can evaluate your oil if you are not sure about the quality.

Most of the regularly-used appliances in your home will run well on propane gas. You can power your hot water heater, dryer, stove and HVAC furnace with propane.

Yes, a natural gas appliance can run on propane, but it does require converting a few internal parts. These changes compensate for the difference in pressure since propane is at a higher pressure than gas. Only some appliances are designed for conversion, however, and they will be labeled appropriately. They may come with a conversion kit as well.

One thing that is important to note that any conversions not specifically mentioned for your appliance may impact your warranty or insurance.

Generators can handle a variety of fuel types, but most run on propane. Also, the fuel doesn’t go bad, so if you only need to power it on once a year during a snowstorm, you know that your fuel is still good.

We offer local fuel delivery and commercial fuel delivery throughout Southern Maryland, across St. Mary’s County, Anne Arundel County, Prince George’s County, Charles County and Calvert County. If you are not currently a customer of SMO Energy, give us a call today! It’s quick and easy to set up an account with us and you can start receiving fuel deliveries right away.

SMO Energy offers two free payment plan options: SmartPay and SmartPay Plus. With SmartPay, you can spread out your payments throughout the year, keeping charges more consistent and avoiding large bills. With SmartPay Plus, you can set up automatic payment options such as a credit card draft. SmartPlay Plus provides all the benefits of SmartPay, with the added benefit of being able to use bank drafts.

SMO Energy offers several delivery options including automatic, scheduled and same-day/next-day delivery for heating fuel and propane. You can also take advantage of our SmartPay program for either option, as well as our 24/7 heating oil emergency delivery services.
