Q.

I have read in a magazine as a tip that keeping an indoor plant near an airconditioner reduces the power consumption!!!!! What is the basis for this if this is true?

It says that one must use plant , trees and shrubs to shade air-conditioning units but do not block the air flow. A unit operating in the shade uses as much as 10% less electricity than the same one operating in the sun.

The possible reason could be that indoor plants purify the air which in turn will obviously help the A/C Units to consume less power.
