In the 21st century, global climate change and the high level of fossil energy consumption have introduced changes affecting all sectors of the economy, including the building industry. This process has prompted EU members to create strict regulations in building energetics. It has become a serious task for architects to find more effective ways for thermal insulation. One of these options is the application of nanostructured materials. Among them nano-ceramic thermocoatings open a wide range of research fields, because complete agreement had not been already found about their insulating effect. In order to explore and describe the thermodynamic process inside nano-ceramic thermocoatings 6 series of heat transfer resistance experiments were performed in 2014-2018. Several building structure configurations with 12 different orders of layers were tested with a standard heat flow meter. On basis of these results it could be concluded that in case of nano-structured thermocoatings convective heat transfer coefficient might be taken account in different way than in case of traditional macro-structured thermal insulation materials. Based on research results, the limits of its applicability can also be concluded. It has also been found that the insulating effect of nanostructured thermocoatings depends on the material characteristics of the insulated surface.
