Shade your way to savings

If the sun beats on your uncovered windows all day long, it forces your air conditioner to work way harder than it has to.  Shade south- and west-facing windows with awnings, shutters or sun screens, and you can reduce the amount of heat that comes through by up to 77 percent.  Another option: Plant leafy trees to filter the sun.  Choose a variety that sheds its leaves in the fall so the sun can shine through your windows in the winter when the extra warmth will give your heating system a break.
