The purpose of the study was to demonstrate the benefits of a model for scientific research in the sense that a construction system with a vegetated enclosure could benefit the internal environment of Juliaca in winter. To do this, we used an experimental procedure to compare the thermal resistance of a fifth-scale adobe high Andean house without vegetation and a house built in the climatic zone with vegetated facades. It simultaneously records the internal surface temperature, the internal air temperature, and the external environmental conditions. The results obtained show that the use of photosystems in buildings is an effective passive technique to reduce energy consumption due to its ability to insulate and protect internal thermal conditions.
