Short analysis of possible retrofitting operations on the building envelope and on the heating system to save energy. An analysis of residential buildings in various parts of Italy has been performed using the Italian national calculation procedures (UNI) for the evaluation of winter energy need. A more detailed analysis in envisaged to extend the data obtained, using more sophisticated codes in order to calculate the annual energy consumption of the building. This would define normalised energy indices to ensure a more energy aware design.
