controlling heat loss gain in home PHOENIX AP Take a close look at your landscaping if your homes energy bills seem high Careful selection and positioning of plants will control heat loss or gain and their costs Think of the cooling comfort of a shady spot on a hot day Homes can be similarly cooled by planting trees to strategically shade them from the direction of the most intense sunlight Conversely in winter the sun will supply free solar heat Deciduous trees are ideal for energy landscaping since they provide shade during the warmest months but allow the sun to reach and warm the house in winter cutting heating costs The Salt River Project a major supplier of electricity in Arizona has advised customers that three trees planted on the west and southwest sides of a home can save to in summercooling costs when they mature An earlier study by University of Arizona horticulturists William Miller and Charles Sacamano found Exterior shading is seven times more effective than interior cooling A wall in full sun transmits three times the heat of a shaded wall an unshaded roof adds twice the heat of a shaded one to the interior of a structure A dense tree canopy will screen out at least 80 percent of the fullsun radiation that falls on a human being outdoor living area or building Miller and Sacamano estimated such screening can reduce maximum high temperatures inside a typical house by 20 percent Much of Arizona receives about 80 CANT KEEP UP WECAN HELP Properly placed plants reduce differences in inner outer wall surfaces And directing the air flow around a home contributes to energy conservation and comfort of living too percent of possible sunshine and tripledigit summer temperatures so the figures may or may not apply where you live The basic idea will be correct for any climate Heat or cooling is also lost or gained of course through the homes building materials Insulation will help and sealing cracks around doors and windows is a must There always will be some conduction through the building no matter how good the insulation and sealing Properly placed plants reduce differences in innerouter wall surfaces And directing the air flow around a home contributes to energy conservation and comfort of living too Plant windbreaks perpendicular to the wind direction to reduce the winds effect Channel cooling breezes by creating an opening at appropriate places in the windbreak planting Be sure you know the direction of your winter winds usually from the north or west Positioning of landscape plants to save energy requires some knowledge of the suns movement While the sun always travels on an eastwest arc during daytime the arc varies as the sun moves from the southern sky in winter to the northern sky in summer On June 22 the summer solstice the sun reaches its highest point overhead The sun is lowest on Dec 22 the winter solstice So as the day lengths and seasons change so do the shadow directions and lengths Tables have been
