One of the best forms of free air conditioning is the natural shade from planting deciduous trees. This instant energy saver can take root if you plant deciduous trees on the south and west sides of your home. The leafy shade from the trees you plant will keep your home cool in the summer, and bare or budding branches will let in sunshine for warmth during the winter. With a little planning and pruning, you will be saving energy costs – naturally.
