KEEP COOL WITH SHADE

The Family Handyman - - HOME SMARTS -

Shade from trees, trel­lises and vines blocks direct sun­light through win­dows, which is re­spon­si­ble for about half the heat gain in your home. Care­fully po­si­tioned trees and hor­i­zon­tal trel­lises on the east and west sides can save up to 30 per­cent of a house­hold’s en­ergy con­sump­tion for heat­ing and cool­ing.
