Romanians Would Rather Freeze Than Pay

Faced with the coldest winted in decades, over 60 thousand families – in Bucharest only – still refuse to have their flats heated, as temperatures took an early dive towards freezing point. Between 10 to 15 percent of all housing associations actively refused to have heat delivered to their homes, fearing the imminent rise in heating bills. According to the RADET (the official centralized heating provider) representatives, some building administrators refuse to turn on the heat, although many home owners urge them to.

“People will freeze to death in their homes by the dozens this winter. The poor and the elderly are most exposed, as they fear the rise in bill value the most”, claims the president of the Home Owners’ Association, Mihai Mereuţă.
