N°. 255 of the House and Urban Development Minister of Chile which, among other objectives, seeks to thermally refurbish houses to provide greater comfort to the inhabitants of this. In practice, this thermal reconditioning has not been implemented in the Metropolitan Region due to in none of its versions funds have been allocated to it.
