Abt’s Energy Solutions Center Tour

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

For anyone who has ever heard of Abt, or has even stepped into our store in Glenview, IL, it’s hard not to notice our dedication to helping the environment.  Abt hosted an energy solutions tour sponsored by Com Ed recently that informed customers of energy saving tips and were asked to fill out surveys explaining their daily energy uses.  A visitor to the tour even mentioned that they were convinced to do away with their old energy guzzling fridge and purchase an Energy Star efficient fridge.

We are pleased with the turnout and hope everyone was informed of some great energy saving tips.  Check out Abt’s Green Initiatives for more information.

Com Ed and Abt: Working Overtime

Monday, July 25th, 2011

ComEd customer demand reached an all-time high peak usage milestone late Wednesday, with demand reaching 23,753 megawatts, exceeding the utility’s previous peak of 23,618 megawatts on Aug. 1, 2006.

With the increasing temperatures and wild storms, all of us here at Abt are putting in a little extra work too, and making sure our customers keep cool and their power stays on.  Our demand for air conditioners and generators have increased drastically the last week.  This extra work hasn’t slowed us down at all though.  “Sales are through the roof, trucks were making up to three pick ups a day”, said John Panchisin, Abt’s store manager.  Panchisin also added that his trucks have been picking up generators and AC units even in the middle of the night to keep up with demand.

If you are still looking for an A/C or need a generator to get your house back in working order, give us a  call at 888-228-5800 or shop our site.

Earth Week at Abt

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Abt celebrated Earth Day on Sunday; it was quite a kick off to Earth Week.

We had so many Earth Friendly activities. Our Glenview neighbors at the Grove brought some cool snakes and turtles for everyone to get to know. Com Ed told us about their environmentally friendly programs. Dan from Garvy’s Office Supplies showed us all sorts of recycled office products. Abt gave tours of the recycling center and had Earth Day treats like granola and oatmeal raisin cookies. Kids who visited got to make sun catchers and mouse pads from recycled materials.

Abt’s goal is to make everyday Earth Day, according to Abt’s President Mike Abt. “Our goal is to have no waste, and we are close,” said Mike. “It’s a core value of the company and is demonstrated in everything we do.”

So on the heels of the Energy Star rebate program and Earth Day 2010, make sure you do your part to make this world a better place. Take a look at http://www.abt.com/green/ for information on how Abt works toward making a small carbon footprint.
