Spring Clean: If you have ceiling fans, run the fans and the air conditioner at the same time but set the air conditioner a few degrees higher, to 80 or 81 degrees. With the breeze from a fan, you should feel as cool as you would at 78 degrees with no fans – but you’ll reduce your costs by about 15%-25%.

Trees lower air temperature by evaporating water in their leaves. Shade trees can make buildings up to 20 degrees cooler in the summer. One acre of trees removes up to 2.6 tons of carbon dioxide each year. The amount of oxygen produced by an acre of trees per year equals the amount consumed by 18 people annually. One tree produces nearly 260 pounds of oxygen each year.
