Gary and Ron were great. I called up looking for an Ariens snowblower, and needed it that day before we were expected to receive significant snowfall in New York. I was able to pay over the phone and my new snowblower was delivered to my house in a few hours. The delivery driver’s were also great, however I can not remember their names. They showed me all of the features of the snowblower, and had it up and running for me, ready to go for the storm. This was my first purchase at Brinkmann’s, but you have earned a customer for life. Thanks again!

In need of a new snow blower of better quality than the one i now own i decided to shop on the internet and found the product i was looking for was carried locally at the Miller Place Brinkmann’s, I stopped by on Monday and was pleasantly surprised that they had all the available modelsi was considering on display . I was assisted by Dave D. who answered all my questions and concerns and advised me that if i was interested i could have the blower set up and delivered that afternoon at no extra charge. No pressure, no stress and best of all the delivery was made on time and as promised. I should also note that the delivery man Quinton was able to navigate his truck up a difficult driveway and did a walk thru of the blowers features. Very professional! In all, a pleasant experience with two outstanding employeesThus 5 Stars. I hope to be as fortunate with the snow blower when the time comes—–

VERY IMPRESSED ! I am a frugal educated shopper and after going to several big box stores and other Brinkmann hardware stores looking for help deciding between 2 high priced snow blower models I was blown away by the patience and courtesy extended to me after I asked one complex technical question after another. I was particularly impressed with Chris’ knowledge and professionalism. In today’s world of mediocre employees it was a pleasure dealing with exceptional ones, thank you. I left confident I chose the right model and the right hardware store.

Always surprised at how much they have here. Like most, I usually travel to Home Depot or Lowe’s for my major home improvement projects. However, I’ve found that more often than not I can find many of the supplies I need right here in town and at a fair price. I actually purchased a great snowblower here a couple of years ago which has served me well. The staff is helpful, so I can get in, get what I need and get back to my project in minutes instead of hours. Oh yeah, Benjamin Moore paints. I’m a regular, I would recommend you give it a try.

Our Net-Zero Energy Initiative

Here at Brinkmann’s Hardware, we believe that the community is more than just where our customers live. It’s something we’re all a part of, and as a member of the community, we’re as committed to protecting the environment as we are at providing excellent customer service and competitive prices. To that end, we have dedicated ourselves to erasing our carbon footprint and becoming a completely net-zero energy company by the year 2025. Two of our locations are already net-zero energy and with the overproduction of these two locations, we believe we are well on our way to making ours a net zero energy corporation.

What Does It Mean to Be Net-Zero?

Brinkmann Hardware Net-Zero Placard

A net-zero energy building produces more energy than it consumes through a combination of passive energy-saving methods, energy-efficient equipment and fixtures, and solar energy cells. Our net-zero energy retail buildings use such innovative features as a highly insulated exterior, forming a tightly sealed envelope and preventing heat loss or gain from the outside. Additionally, the roofs have been replaced with a thermoplastic “cool roof” that reflects solar rays and further reduces heat gain.

Our Miller Place store has a rooftop solar array, a bank of 304 photovoltaic cells that generates power for the building during the day. This is a crucial part of the whole system and is the primary means by which it generates more energy than it uses.

LED Lighting Inside & Out

Also, all the lighting on the interior and exterior of the building is achieved with highly efficient LED lights. Heating and cooling is accomplished with geothermal energy, meaning that the stores use no gas or oil to maintain their internal climate. Geothermal heating/cooling is an efficient, environmentally friendly system that uses underground water to transfer heat to and from the ground, cooling or heating the interior of the retail store as is appropriate for the climate and season.

Sayville Net Zero Energy Building

Dedicated to Energy Conservation

Our first net-zero energy retail location in Miller Place has been a resounding success. The completion of it gave us the distinction of being the first net-zero energy retailer in the United States, and the resulting reduction of carbon emissions equals over 7 million pounds of carbon, which is the equivalent of planting over 40 acres of trees. The Miller Place store saves over 64,000 kilowatt hours of energy each year, at a savings of approximately $11,000 annually. The solar energy system produces over 125,000 kilowatt hours annually. This reduction is equivalent to removing 27 cars from the road, saving nearly 15,000 gallons of gasoline annually.

Where We Stand

Through our net-zero energy initiative, we seek to set the standard for conscientious business practices, as well as being a leader in the field. If we can convert our retail locations into carbon neutral or negative establishments, while still maintaining profitability and customer service, then our hope is that other businesses in the community will follow suit as well. The environment, after all, isn’t just what exists when you drive out of the city. It’s something we’re all a part of, and caring for it is a responsibility that falls on each of us.
