April 21, 2022
First established on April 22, 1970, Earth Day is an annual event to show support for the Earth’s environmental protection. Events and celebrations are held around the world on this day. April 22, 2022, marks the 52nd anniversary of this event, which was founded by Governor Gaylord Nelson, a former governor of Wisconsin.
Earth Day marked a watershed moment in the United States—while preceded by the Clean Air Act, it was followed shortly by the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as well as the passage of the Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act in the early 70s.
How Earth Day Connects to Accurate-Airtight Exteriors
We at Accurate-Airtight Exteriors work on commercial and residential buildings to make them more efficient, comfortable, safe, but also more sustainable and environmentally friendly. We use building science solutions to air seal and insulate homes and buildings experiencing a variety of issues such as air leakage, comfort concerns, high energy bills, moisture issues, ice dams, and more. Blower door testing, infrared imaging, and other services are also offered to determine issues in buildings from residential homes to large commercial buildings.
Our work is important not only to help home and building owners save money and improve indoor comfort but also because saving energy and reducing energy waste helps the environment. We here at A-AE find writing this blog fitting due to the connection of our sustainability work in the Madison, WI area—the same state where Gaylord Nelson was governor. Our morals and values are aligned with helping the environment, not only with the work we do but the materials and processes we use.
