Everyone enjoys the cool relief of shade on those hot summer days when the sun is just too much. You can give your Milwaukee house the same relief by planting the right trees in the right places. Trees can be used to shade your house and reduce your cooling costs. You can block up to 90% of solar radiation with a mature shade tree properly placed around your home.
Studies done by the U.S. Department of Energy predicted the proper placement of even just three shade trees could save an average household $100-$250 a year in energy costs. Shading your roof and windows from solar heat with deciduous trees can decrease the amount of air conditioner use necessary to keep you comfortable throughout hot Wisconsin summers.
Picking the Right Trees in Milwaukee
Deciduous or shade trees can be used as natural air conditioners and save energy by shading houses and paved areas. Even smaller deciduous and shade trees and shrubs can serve as protection and insulation from the hot sun in the Wisconsin summer, and the cold winds in the Wisconsin winter (saving you heating costs as well).
The proper placement of your trees in Milwaukee is important to get the most energy saving out of them. It’s best to place your Milwaukee trees on the south and west sides of your Milwaukee home or building. The sun’s rays are the most intense on these sides. Plant deciduous trees with higher, wider crowns on the south side of your home to receive the maximum amount of roof shading. Use shorter crowned trees on the west side to protect your home from the lower afternoon sun angles.
Slow growing trees are the better option as they tend to live longer, and have stronger branches and deeper roots making them less likely to be damaged or fall during windstorms. Slow growing trees also are less affected by drought conditions in Wisconsin then fast growing trees tend to be.
Smaller Milwaukee trees, shrubs, and plants can also help with your energy saving. Using these, you can shade the ground and pavement around your Milwaukee home, reducing the heat radiation and cooling the air before it reaches your windows and walls. You can use a row of shrubs or a larger bush to shade your patio or driveway for some relief from the summer heat as well.
Planting the right Milwaukee trees and proper tree maintenance can also raise the value of your property. Studies have proven you can raise your home premium by up to 5% with good landscaping, and healthy trees with proper Milwaukee tree maintenance.
