Planting Trees Can Help You Save On Your A/C Bills

Air conditioning repair | air conditioning service maple grove mn | dean's professional plumbing, heating, air & drainWe love blasting the A/C on hot summer days, but at the end of the month our wallets don’t always agree. Fortunately, there is a simple, natural and often overlooked way to save on your air conditioning bill.

Shade your outdoor air conditioning condenser.

Planting trees around your condenser can help keep your system from having to work as hard. If you have a central air conditioning system installed in your home, consider updating your landscape to include some trees and shrubs that shade your condenser.

Just keep in mind – plants too close to the condenser can block air flow. Choose where you place your greenery carefully. You will want to avoid choosing trees and shrubs that will drop a lot of seeds, pods or leaves around your condenser.

Add trees that shade your windows, too.

When the hot sun beats down on your home, it can cause the rooms to heat up. One way to avoid this solar heat gain is by planting a few trees around your home to block the direct sunlight.  A larger tree can provide your home with significant energy savings over time!
