How do trees save energy?



  1. 0 Votes

    Trees can save energy in the summer if they provide the house shade.  Shading the sunny side of your house windows and roof can keep the sun from warming your house up in the Summer. And if they are deciduous trees (those that lose their leaves) it will not prevent the sun from heating your home through windows and warming the roof in the winter.

    There are a variety of ways that trees can be used to save energy. Strategically placed, trees can be as effective as other energy saving home improvements such as insulation and the installation of weather tight windows and doors. Trees can help reduce your heating and cooling costs. Trees save energy through cooling in the hotter months and provide a wind break during the winter. The result of this would be less burning of fossil fuels to generate electricity for cooling and heating. Trees can help reduce air conditioning costs up to 30 percent.
