BALTIMORE (WJZ) – Shade is useful in more ways than one on hot, summer days.

Mary Bubala reports shade can help keep you cool in the hot weather, but it can also protect your air conditioner.

Plant trees and shrubs to shade air conditioning units, but don’t block the airflow.

A unit operating in the shade uses as much as 10 percent less electricity than those operating in the sun.
