Plenty of other publications and organizations are paying attention to going green in homes, and that includes National Geographic.thumbs_picture-20

Here are few of the tips from National Geographic’s “True Green Home” book on how to limit the need for air conditioning in your home, and they’re things you should consider during the design process.

  • Position your home in relation to daily sunlight and wind flow. That will help you use nature to your benefit, National Geographic says.
  • Plant trees with a plan, on the sides of the house that get more sun, to reduce the need for artificial cooling.
  • Embrace the openness, with patios, courtyards and fountains that can “help create a more comfortable, livable habitat without having to rely on artificial cooling.”
