Describes how you can use shade trees to keep your home cool.
Plants can act as a shades to block sunlight and help us keep our homes cooler. In the summer time a tree with leaves will shade the home, decreasing the amount of sunlight striking the house, keeping it cooler. In the winter, when a tree drops it’s leaves, the sunlight is allowed to hit the home to assist in keeping it warm.
The color your home (and especially the roof) is painted can have an impact on heating and cooling it. Light colors will reflect the sunlight. Dark colors will absorb more sunlight. So, if you paint a house light colors or have a light-colored roof, the house will stay cooler in the summer.
