A divulgative guide directed to communities of neighbors and house owners on thermal refurbishment of buildings. The guide explains what is a thermal refurbishment with isolation, when it can and should be done, what buildings are susceptible to a refurbishment, practical advice and how to apply for the available aids. The last chapter contains a case study of a real example. This publication has been drafted by the National Association of Insulating Materials Manufacturers (ANDIMAT) in collaboration with the Institute for Energy Diversification and Energy Saving (IDAE).
