Thanks to research recently conducted by NASA, we now have a low-cost, attractive solution to this problem. Living walls provide significant energy benefits. The interior and exterior living green walls function to cool the air in the warmer summer months by a process known as “evapotranspiration.” The winter months see the added advantage of building insulation thus reducing energy costs for heating the building. Exterior living green walls can reduce wall surface temperatures by as much as 50 degrees °F, resulting in significant energy savings and air conditioning costs.
Plus, common plants such as Pothos, Janet Craig’s and species like Dracaena’s have the ability to effectively reduce levels of a number of noxious gases found in almost every home or office building. Contact us to learn more.
