For severe cold areas, indoor heating in winter is very important, and it is also important to achieve energy saving and emission reduction in the heating process. This paper briefly introduced a kind of heating envelope structure, the geothermal energy-based phase change wall, and analyzed two rural self-built houses in Shangluo city, Shaanxi province. One self-built house was built without the phase change wall, and the other was built with the geothermal energy-based phase change wall by the municipal government. The results showed that the self-built house that adopted the phase change wall had a better heat preservation effect and relieved the indoor temperature fluctuation; after the heating equipment was turned on, the self-built house that adopted the geothermal energy-based phase change wall had a higher and more stable indoor temperature, and the power consumption during the experiment was less.
