21 Oct Weatherization Day is 10/30/21
National Weatherization Day is on October 30, 2021, and an opportunity to highlight the important work performed by the Energy Department’s Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP).
In 2020, OACAC weatherized 103 homes in the Ozarks, despite a three month shutdown due to COVID. 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.
While there won’t be an in person celebration of Weatherization Day this year, we celebrate with the proclamation below.
