30 Oct Weatherization Day
10/30/19: National Weatherization Day is an opportunity to highlight the important work performed by the Energy Department’s Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP).
In 2018, OACAC weatherized 163 homes in the Ozarks. Benefits include reduced energy usage; increased energy efficiency of the home; long-term energy savings; and a safer, healthier living environment. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, weatherized households save an average of $283 annually on utility costs. Services may include insulation of attic, floors and walls; weather stripping; repairs to doors and windows; gas heating systems and appliances tested for safety and efficiency; and air sealing.
In celebration of Weatherization Day, a live demonstration was held today at a home currently being weatherized. Thanks to all who attended, along with the homeowner and our Weatherization crews doing the great work they are doing.
