Benefits of Trees to Cool Homes

Benefits of Trees to Cool Homes. Trees and plants can help cool your houses internal environment, tree and plant planting is a simple and cost saving way to reduce the heat in homes.

Tree and plant vegetation work best when planted in certain locations around walls or to shade pavement in car parking concrete areas. Using a tree is  effective for cooling a homes wall, and also good for shading windows and the homes roof.

Trees produce an effective cooling effect that can decrease the local air temperatures by several degrees. This effect usually reaches its height when evaporation levels are at their highest, usually around 12 noon.

Tree and plant shade will require you to study the size, shape, and location of the shade that your tree surface projects. You need to know what landscape garden areas will work best in your state for the sunlight produced throughout the year.

Trees come in different sizes, densities, and shapes for most shade area requirements. They will help minimise solar heat in summer but let the heat through during the winter, use deciduous plant and trees.

Plant trees far enough away from the home so that when they grow to a large size their root systems do not dam­age the concrete footing foundation and branches do not damage the homes roof and gutters.

Trees and plants can also be used to shade the pavement and concrete around the house. Trees and plants help to reduce heat radiation and cools the air before it reaches the walls of the building. A tree bush or hedge row of plants to shade a patio or driveway is a good idea.
