Long before the widespread use of home cooling and heating systems, people used landscaping to manage home comfort. Even with the most advanced and energy efficient system in place, you can still get HVAC savings from using trees strategically. However, there are pros and cons to consider.

Pros: What a Tree Does for HVAC Systems

Cons: Tree Selection and Planting

The trees you select and where they are planted will make a big difference in your HVAC savings. Deciduous trees provide summer shade and winter warmth, but they do drop their leaves every fall, resulting in yard cleanup chores. Evergreens, like pines, don’t create the litter deciduous trees do, and they’ll shade the area year-round.

Faster growing trees tend to have shallower roots and weaker branches than slower growing, stronger trees. Another consideration is the spread of the tree canopy. If it will hang over the roof, you’ll need to prune those branches off to prevent storm damage from strong winds. Limbs from trees too close to the condenser could damage it in a severe storm also.

For all your HVAC needs contact Jackson & Sons, who can help you save on energy costs immediately with a seasonal maintenance tune up.
