Win with Abt and Kohler this Weekend

Friday, September 11th, 2009

The Kohler Store, Fox Lighting Galleries, Lutron, Subzero, Wolf, Viking, DDK, Exotic Marble and Tile, and Avanti are all participating in a national water conservation campaign. The event in the atrium takes place at Abt Electronics this Saturday, September 12 from 10 am- 5 pm and Sunday, September 13, 2009 from 11 am-5 pm to show consumers how to cut down on water and energy consumption.

After speaking with Lynn Schrange of the Kohler Store, I realized how little that I knew about how water is wasted in a home.

Lynn pointed out that our planet is made up of 75% water, although only less than 1% is ok to drink. We need to really work on keeping our water supply safe—there’s not that much there. In homes, we can save up to 39,000 gallons per year by making small—almost unnoticeable changes to our lives. 39,000 gallons is enough drinking water for a family of four for an entire year or enough to fill a swimming pool.

The first change the Save Water America Campaign tells us to make is get a low flow faucet and turn off water when it’s not in use (like when we are brushing our teeth). That can save 14, 700 gallons of water per year. Next, installing a low-flow shower head can conserve 7,700 gallons per year. Most impressive, if we were to install low flow toilets and remove leaky ones, we could save 16,500 gallons of water each year.

Lynn also told me about a simple quiz about water conservation that is on the Kohler website. If you take this simple 90-second quiz, one dollar will be donated to Habitat for Humanity.

There will be prizes, drawings, and products available for purchase. All of the items that are available for purchase are eligible for free delivery and there are installation options for all of the energy conserving products!

Abt’s Back to School Products are Head of Their Class

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

Abt found the coolest products to get any student ready for the school year.

The Garmin Nuvi 205 GPS will get you back to school—without too many detours. It’s great for college because of its anti-theft feature, battery life, and touch-screen capabilities.

“Computer sales are up in the store right now because they are becoming more affordable and students need them for college. Now is the perfect time to buy a laptop,” according to Winnie in the Sony Store.

A new laptop is a fun way to start a school year. Abt carries a variety of portable computers ranging from Apple to Sony. Perfect for a college student, the Asus laptop is affordable and comes preconfigured with the Windows operating system—ready to go right out of the box! We also carry stylish and functional laptop bags. When I asked David, from small electronics, what is the most popular back to school electronic, he responded, “Laptops. Macs and Sonys. We have the absolute essentials for back to school college students, like laptops, mini-fridges, and small electronics. I just quoted a price on a Sony laptop for a first-time student going to Dayton.”

Abt put some thought into making college eating healthier. We found some small appliances for dorms and apartments that will make cooking easy—even for a busy college student. Cuisinart makes a line of easy-to-use appliances like egg cookers, sandwich makers, and slow cookers that will keep any student well-fed. Looking for a healthy option? The Breville HealthSmart Food Steamer is a must buy. Waring makes a professional waffle maker—a personal favorite. Don’t forget to check out an Avanti, under the counter refrigerator—a perfect place to chill leftovers so they don’t end up looking like a science experiment.

A messy dorm is easy to find on any campus. Electrolux makes a 2-In-1 lightweight upright vacuum, perfect for a dorm or apartment. Having an easy-to-use vacuum around should be the motivation needed to keep any study space clean. Did you know that GE made a portable dishwasher?

College isn’t all about class, studying, and eating. Check out the LG 32″ LCD flat panel HDTV, the Nintendo Wii, and the Samsung 5.1-channel home theater system.

Capturing college memories is a must! Canon Power shot is a great camera, small enough for pockets and most purses—definitely backpacks.

Abt is the first place students (or their parents) need to stop before heading back to school. Preparation is the key to success and we will take care of all a students needs. To see all the great back to school gadgets, click here. – Kelly B.
