Plant a Tree This Spring and Reduce Your AC Bills This Summer


The Power of Trees

Reduce your monthly cooling costs by planting trees around your home. In warm weather, shaded areas are actually up to six degrees cooler than sunny areas. By planting trees in the right locations, you can cool your house with natural shade.

In addition to shade, trees also serve as air conditioners themselves. Their natural process of transpiring cools the air around them.

Where to Plant

The Arbor Day Foundation recommends positioning shade trees on the east, west and northeast sides of your home to receive maximum shade.

Great Shade Trees

Any tree planted starts giving benefits to your home at about 6-8 feet as it starts providing shade for your windows. In 5-10 years (depending on the species), it should begin to shade your roof as well. These are a few of the most helpful shade trees that thrive in the southern California area:

Shade Trees to Avoid

It’s important to choose wisely when considering natural shade, because some trees cause more trouble than they’re worth. These are trees you really don’t want to end up with in your backyard:

When placing your trees, also consider that your AC needs “room to breathe” to effectively cool your house. Any trees should be placed a few feet away from your outside unit.
