Daylight Savings

Friday, March 7th, 2014

It’s that time of year again.  March 9th is Daylight Savings Time.  It begins at 2:00 am Sunday morning. We spring ahead and, unfortunately, lose an hour.  While it stinks to lose some sleep, this only means that Spring is around the corner!  Don’t forget to set your clocks forward Saturday night.

Spring Forward

Friday, March 12th, 2010

Spring ahead with Abt. We are having a Pre-Spring Customer Appreciation Sale now through March 14th, the start of Daylight Savings Time.

Every year we lose an hour of sleep by setting our clocks ahead one hour, but we gain energy-saving environmental benefits. By better utilizing the daylight hours we save energy; everyday in March and April there is a potential to save energy equivalent to 100,000 barrels of oil. In California alone, people save a combined 11 million kilowatt hours of energy during Daylight Savings Time, enough to power 1600 homes. Just think of the collective impact on the environment. It may seem like a small amount, but over time it really adds up.

Each year when Daylight Savings Time approaches, the Abt sales specialists field hundreds of questions from customers on changing clocks and time keeping devices in the home.

It can be time consuming and frustrating if you are not familiar with how to change all of the different clocks in your home, especially because clocks aren’t the only time keepers that need to be reset. Many appliances and electronics in the home will need to be changed as well. Ovens, Microwaves, VCRs, DVD players, older TVs, watches, and clock radios will all need to spring forward. If you need help setting your clocks, come into the store or give us a call.

Come to Abt Saturday or Sunday for the Pre-Spring Customer Appreciation Sale and speak with a sales specialist with any of your questions.
