Bearing in mind the fact that during the design and construction of the additional stories to the residential buildings the standards about the heat technology in the civil engineering were not met for the entire structure and very often not even for the additional stories of the structure, we deemed that it is necessary to emphasize the possibility of the heat balance improvements through the application of the facade thermal insulation systems on the non-insulated facade walls. That this concept is valid, is supported by the fact that in practice, the aesthetic and functional repairs of the existing facade walls of the heightened buildings, offer a favorable substrate (basis) for the application of the facade thermal insulation systems and offers an opportunity for the regular remedial measures of the building, from the aspect of energy issues. Therefore, the objective of the study is the quantification of the participation of the facade walls in the heat balance in several typical procedures of the heightening of residential buildings, and the analysis of the possibility of a correction by the application of the FACADE THERMAL INSULATION SYSTEMS. Thus, the relevant parameters of the heat balance for the previous status of the building were analyzed for several characteristic building heightening cases, and they were compared to the parameters after the additional application of the facade thermal insulation systems. The research results on the structures-models have been illustrated with sketches, graphs, diagrams and tables.
