Not only air conditioners and ventilators: a great help to fight the heat on the hottest days of summer can also come from plants, and not only thanks to their shade. In fact, some species can help reduce temperatures, even at home.
Thanks to photosynthesis, plants capture the sun's rays. For this reason, placing them in some strategic points (such as the areas most exposed to the sun during the hottest hours) can be of help against summer heat. An example is climbing plants, which, like vertical gardens, "protect" the walls from overheating.
Even houseplants improve well-being, helping to oxygenate the environments, reduce humidity and purify the air.
