Adirondack Hardware will host its 13th annual Energy Expo Friday, Sept. 6, and Saturday, Sept. 7, at its Keeseville store at 1698 Front St.
Roger Long Jr. said the event is held annually to help customers throughout the North Country prepare for the colder months that are ahead.
“We’re trying to get people to think ahead,” Long said. “This way people can avoid the panic of trying to find an alternative source of heat.”
By holding the event in early September, Long said it also gives the service members of the hardware store an opportunity to help the customers find the right unit, do a site visit to size out the home properly and set an install date.
Long said the goal of the expo is to continue to give people a chance to see the options that are out there for home heating.
“Everybody from manufacturers down to homeowners are looking to find ways to save through energy efficiency and energy conservation,” he said.
Long said there are numerous options for home heating at the store, including direct vent heaters (run on natural gas, propane and kerosene) and water heaters from Tayotomi and Rinnai; and Napoleon wood stoves, pellet stoves, liquid propane, combination and natural gas stoves.
Along with heating systems, Adirondack Hardware also provides energy efficient new construction and replacement windows from Silverline by Anderson Windows.
“They are the largest manufacturer of new construction and replacement windows in the country,” Long said.
In tandem with the Energy Expo, the Keeseville store will also be holding a tent sale with items prices at $1, $3, $5 and $10.
“We are trying to take much of the stuff that has been on inventory at our three stores (Keeseville, Willsboro and Malone) and have basically a huge reduction sale,” Long said. “People are going to be able to get a great bargain.”
The Adirondack Hardware Energy Expo will run from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 6, and again from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7.
Regular store hours for all three stores are 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday; 7:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Sunday (open until 2 p.m. at Malone site).
