In this chapter, methods for the experimental determination of thermal properties of building envelopes are presented. These methods are used for commissioning, the process performed by independent experts prior to handling over the building to the customer, in the process of energy labelling of the buildings or to evaluate the most cost effective measures for the renovation of the buildings. Some semi-professional tools and equipment will also be presented, as they are very useful for the preliminary evaluation of different aspects of living comfort and energy efficiency for students and designers.
