With the recent record-breaking heat wave in Waterloo Region behind us, our thoughts turn to how to cope with such humid weather. The common answer for most is central air conditioning and, for some, swimming pools. However, with Ontario recently implementing time-of-use pricing, these alternatives are becoming increasingly costly.
One time-tested solution for dealing with unwelcome heat is shade trees. In addition to better curb appeal, the cooling effect of shade trees mean lower air-conditioning costs. Shade trees also absorb and store water which will prevent the lawns around them from drying out. As a result, Kitchener Waterloo homeowners with shade trees found themselves in an ideal situation during recent weeks.
