November 21, 2012
NEW YORK — ABM, a leading provider of integrated facility solutions, announced that its subsidiary GreenHomes America LP has signed a franchise agreement with Washington Energy Services, a leading provider of home performance contracting services in Washington state. ABM said Washington Energy Services adds to its growing network and becomes its first residential HVAC contractor in Washington.

As a franchisee of GreenHomes America, Washington Energy Services will be joining ABM Franchising Group, a portfolio of franchise networks that deliver mechanical and electrical service and preventive maintenance solutions to commercial, industrial, and residential buildings. The franchising group consists of four franchise brands: Linc Service, GreenHomes America, TEGG, and CurrentSAFE. Utilizing the GreenHomes America residential business model, Washington Energy Services will expand its current offerings of home performance services to provide guaranteed energy savings to clients.

“Washington Energy Services is pleased to bring the home performance services of GreenHomes America to western Washington,” said Craig Olson, president of Washington Energy Services. “Joining the franchise network represents the next step in our mission to help homeowners save energy and live better.”

Washington Energy Services is currently celebrating its 55th year of service as a family owned and operated residential HVAC contractor with locations in Seattle, Tacoma, and Lynnwood. The company provides energy efficient home improvement products and services, including installation, maintenance, and repair of HVAC systems and accessories, to clients in western Washington. The company’s main location in Lynnwood houses its Energy Center, a showroom providing clients the opportunity to learn about ways to save energy in their homes and discover new energy efficient home improvement products. Washington Energy Services is a five-time recipient of the Energy Efficiency Action Award, presented by Puget Sound Energy to organizations demonstrating outstanding performance in helping Washington’s residential customers save electricity and natural gas.

“Washington Energy Services’ wealth of experience combined with our proven system will allow them to offer additional home performance services and solutions to their substantial base of long-term clients,” said Bert Kendall, chief operating officer of ABM Franchising Group. “We are excited to welcome Washington Energy Services to the ABM Franchising Group and look forward to their continued success.”
