Well, let's be honest: this is true in the summer where surface greening at the  home reduces the heat in the home.

Summer Heat Insulation

In "heat protection" everyone thinks of first cold winter and insulating layers, which reduce heating costs.

Here facade green can cool down the walls by absorbing the sun's rays and by not allowing the rays to hit the wall surface. This is especially true in non-insulated homes, greening can replace the air conditioning and your wallet takes less of a beating. Facade cooling without electricity costs, at the same time re-active climate protection-Yes!
