Photographer's Note

Until now the only concept associated with Wind Curtain pertains to the domain of Bioclimate, specifically to what should not be done when cooling a house. (see footnote).

It is time to introduce the concept of Wind Curtain as the visible frontline between the winds that command the oceans: the easterlies (between equator and subtropical highs) and the westerlies (between polar circle and subtropical highs).

The Wind Curtain capital of the world is located in the Azores, where ironically are also found some of the only coasts of the world where both cooling and heating is not required.
And this is not the only superlative related to climate elements of the westernmost coast between Europe and North America.

--- Note - Concept of Wind Curtain in Bioclimate

Being trapped in summer or hot days, most people are able to get their house nice and cool. The most common method can be seen is people trapped themselves in their house and switch on air-conditioners as well as fans. But something important they do not take in account - fan and air-conditioner working out as one cooler.The propellers of the fan tend to create a cone-shaped fast air region where usually one fan is enough for a medium size room. Somehow, a fan and an air-conditioner working together is a big nono. This is because the fast air in the region created by the fan keeps the “outside” air circling around the barrier, which how a wind curtain is formed.
Therefore, in this situation the existence of the air-conditioner is completely useless as the cold air cannot reach where it supposed to reach.
