Arizona summers can be brutal, and most AZ residents will take all the help they can get when it comes to staying cool and saving money while doing so. To save money during the summer, your home should be well-insulated and you should have an energy efficient air conditioning system. Most homeowners overlook another major way to stay cool and save.
By planting shade trees and other vegetation around your home in areas that will block sunlight, you will lower the temperature of your home and save money on cooling costs. Vegetation native to Arizona can withstand and even thrive in the high temps and long hours of sun, unlike most building materials and structures. Because of all of the concrete in town, there is a heat bubble around Phoenix and the surrounding cities. When you add vegetation, the entire area can begin to rebalance and become cooler like the surrounding desert naturally is.
