04 Oct Weatherization Day Demonstration
National Weatherization Day is an opportunity to highlight the important work performed by the Energy Department’s Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP). In recognition, the community is invited to attend a live demonstration of weatherization measures from an OACAC crew. This free event is open to the public and will be held on Wednesday, October 30 from 11am – 1pm at 3731 S. Glenstone, Lot 206 in Springfield.
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.
