Highlands NC Homes, Shade Lowers Temperature Inside

When it comes to Highlands NC homes, shade lowers the temperature inside while creating comfortable spaces to enjoy outside.  A covered porch or a large shade tree helps protect the inside of your home from direct sun, effectively cooling your home and eliminating the need for air conditioning or at the very least assisting your cooling system.  If your home feels hot consider making some changes and help lower temperatures without turning on the air conditioning.

The best way to naturally cool the temperature of your Highlands home is to plant a tree.  Speak with the local gardening association or a landscaping company to find out what grows best here in the Highlands area as well as what trees grow faster and fuller.  Trees add great instant shade.  Another rout to go is adding awnings to your home.
