Vegetation: a natural thermal protector

Vegetation is an essential element in the design of a bioclimatic house.

It also protects habitat from strong winds by reducing their intensity. In this case, we will choose trees with persistent and very dense leaves.

Deciduous plant is a periodic annual regulator of the amount of solar radiation on the facades of the habitat.

Another very effective way to use vegetation as a thermal protector is to use climbing plants.

On the diagram opposite, we can see the different functions that can be fulfilled by this type of plant.
