The number of rural housing construction in our country is increasing daily. With the appeal of energy-saving renovations in rural housing, improving the rural living environment has become a problem that can not be ignored. In this paper, the Dest-H energy simulation software was used to simulate the cooling and heating loads of a rural residential building in different climatic regions of our country under different absorption rates of the external surface. The results show that the total air conditioning load can be reduced by increasing the absorption rate of the enclosure appropriately in the cold and cold areas. For the areas with hot summer and cold winter, hot summer and warm winter, and mild areas, reducing the sunlight absorption rate of the external protective structure can reduce the total air conditioning load of the year. With the absorption rate of the outer sheath, the natural room temperature also gradually increased.
