Most of the buildings, representing cultural heritage in Slovenia, were not equipped with technology for temperature or humidity conditioning, according to modern standards. To adapt the building performance to modern standards, heating systems must be planned and installed with great care. Main conditions for the planning are given by the designed use, restoration demands, building physics conditions and condition of the building fabric. Planning and installation of the heating system must include experts from different fields. Churches, with its high space, big mass of the walls and intermittent use represent a special case regarding heating system. The parts of the heating system must not be visible, sensitive objects of art inside churches require minimum temperature and humidity oscillations, low air velocity and low dust circulation. Moisture in the walls should be reduced to minimize possibility of wall damage. Heating system called "temperisation" was chosen for two parish churches in Slovenia. The system originates from Germany where it was first used for this purpose in the mid 80's. The system assures adequate temperature and relative humidity with low oscillations throughout the whole year, low air velocity and low dust circulation. A system of copper pipes is built in the walls, heating them and radiating heat to the space, people and objects. Experience with radiative wall heating systems is taken into consideration. System requires low temperature of the heating medium (50/40ºC) throughout the year.
