Yes! With our free SmartPay program, you can keep your energy costs down during the coldest months of the year by spreading your energy costs into lower, monthly payments. 

With SmartPay, your expected fuel, service agreement, and tank lease fee expenses for the year will be divided over 12 months, which translates to low monthly payments. This is our most popular payment program.

To calculate your monthly payment, we use your delivery history to estimate the total number of gallons you will need for the year. We then combine that cost with the cost of any service plans or tank lease fees to estimate your monthly payment amount. You don’t need to worry about using less fuel than we’ve budgeted for because you can always request a refund on the remaining balance. Periodically SMO Energy will review your actual spend to your projected spend and will adjust your SmartPay payments to align the two. The best part –there is no cost to enroll in this program!

If desired, you may also choose to enroll in our SmartPay Plus program to save even more! This program allows you to autopay so you won’t have to worry about sending in your SmartPay payment each month. With this convenient program, your payments are automatically withdrawn from your bank account or credit card on the 26th of each month. There are no fees to enroll in the SmartPay Plus program.

Unfortunately, we are not able to fill a propane tank from another provider. Tanks from propane companies are most often leased to homeowners — even if you own the property. If you are interested in using SMO Energy for propane delivery, please contact us today and we’ll be happy to help you transfer your delivery service. 

Many people wonder whether propane is a safe option for heating a home. Here are a few answers to some of the most common propane safety questions:

Is it easy for a propane tank to explode?

No. Exploding, imploding or ruptured tanks are extremely rare. While many people have seen an exploding propane tank on television or in a movie, this is nearly impossible under normal operating conditions. There are numerous safety mechanisms in place to prevent accidents, explosions, ruptures or breaches to the propane tank.

How can I tell if I have a propane leak and what should I do if there is a possible propane leak?

On its own, propane is colorless and odorless. It produces minimal emissions, is not harmful to soil or groundwater and is non-toxic. Most propane suppliers will add a chemical compound that makes propane smell like rotten eggs in order to alert customers if there is a leak. If you suspect that you have a propane leak, it is important that you:

  1. ​Extinguish smoking materials or open flames immediately.
  2. If possible, turn off the main gas supply by turning the valve on your propane tank clockwise (to the right).
  3. Evacuate the area immediately and get everyone out of your home. Once everyone is safe, call us right away at 888-225-1022 or contact your local police or fire department.
  4. Do not return to your home until your tank has been inspected or until your local fire department has determined that it is safe to do so.
  5. Before using any propane appliances or turning on your heating system, have one of our NATE-certified technicians inspect your entire system to confirm that there are no leaks.

 

Is running out of propane dangerous?

Yes. There are serious safety hazards associated with letting your propane tank go empty. It is always best to keep your propane tank filled and monitored by a propane provider. If you are monitoring your propane tank, it is best to not let the tank go below 30 percent of the tank capacity.

Reasons why it is important to ensure your propane does not run out: 

  • If an appliance valve or a gas line is left open, a leak could occur when the tank is refilled with propane.
  • If your propane tank runs out of gas, any pilot lights on your appliances will go out. This creates an extremely dangerous situation and is highly recommended that a qualified service technician light any pilot light that has gone out.
  • Air and moisture may accumulate inside of an empty tank resulting in rust forming on the inside of a tank. If this happens, the rust can reduce the concentration of propane odor which makes the gas more difficult to smell and detect if there is a leak.

Please note that many states require a propane provider or a service technician to perform a leak check on your propane system before turning the gas back on. If you have run out of propane, it is important that you contact your provider immediately to schedule a leak check for your system.

Modifying or performing DIY repairs on your propane system are not recommended for safety reasons. Any repairs or modifications to any part of a propane system should be done by a licensed professional or propane company. In some instances, modifying your propane system can be illegal.
