Belgian housing stock is characterised by a high proportion of old buildings (especially in the big cities). The presence of central heating in Belgian housing has risen in the past decades. Natural gas has now surpassed fuel oil as the main source of heat. Coal has also shown a marked decline. Major progress has been made in insulating buildings (dual-glazed windows, insulated roofs, outer walls and heating pipes).
