Abt on NBC Chicago

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

While the result of this past weekend’s football game was less than thrilling for us in the Chicagoland area, a lot of the fun came from the build up. One of the exciting things came from planning a party.  Josh Davis, made an appearance on NBC Morning News on Saturday to share some of his ideas for great things to have for your ultimate football party.  While our Bear’s chances are dashed, all these items are still great to get for the upcoming Super Bowl in February.

NBC Chicago is Green With Abt

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

Abt’s ongoing green efforts are showcased on NBC Chicago’s article, “Is It Possible to Live Off the Electrical Grid?”.   If you are a frequent visitor to our blog, you are well aware of our efforts to make this world a little greener. Most recently we installed a Windspire in the front of our store.

Every day our 350,000 plus square foot complex is powered from the hours of 9 am- 6 pm by two engines that run on natural gas. “If you were producing more power than you were using, your meter would actually spin backwards,” says Bob Taylor, our Director of Operations. Adding energy “back into the grid” is what happens when the system generates so much power.

If you are from the Chicagoland area and are  interested at all in adding solar panels to your business or home, or even adding a Windspire to create your own energy, give us a call at 847-967-8830 . For full information on our efforts visit our Going Green page.

Dollars for Dishwashers???

Friday, August 28th, 2009


“Cash for Appliances” is the latest Federal stimulus program. Similar to the “Cash for Clunkers” program, the government is hoping to stimulate the economy and help consumers save money in the long run with Energy Star appliances.

According to an article in today’s Wall Street Journal (where Abt’s showroom was featured), each state will individually determine how much of a $50 to $200 rebate will be offered for specific energy-saving appliances.

Abt’s General Manager, Mark Cook, spoke with both ABC and NBC’s local news stations about the latest incentive program on August 26, 2009.

Abt is currently offering great deals on Energy Star Appliances, contact any Abt appliance specialist for details. Click Here
