Paper Abstract

After the energy crises in 1974 rebuilding in Sweden has often included supplementary insulation of the thermal envelope. This has been done as the Building Code says that rebuilding is equal to building a new house at least from the codes point of view. Therefore the rebuilt house should have a quality equal to a new one. Moreover the government has given financial support to supplementary insulation in the belief that it would result in energy conservation for the built environment. This support has been given to buildings that ought to be badly insulated judging from their age and construction. Therefore many pretty buildings in our country has got new ugly overcoats with a thicker lining. Not necessarily because they needed the lining but because of the financial possibilities or the fact that the old overcoat was worn out.
