WINDOWS & DOORS
In Romania you will often hear the word ‘termopane’, meaning windows and doors made of a special material, and with glass which offers better insulation and noise protection.
KEY COPYING CENTERS
You will find key cutting/copying services in most shopping gallerias near major hypermarkets in Bucharest, as well as in various areas in the city, on street locations. Some of them look shabby and very old fashioned, but don’t be put off, they still make very good key copies.
WATER DELIVERY SERVICES
There are several options for getting around drinking the tap water in Bucharest (we would not recommend drinking it). The worst is probably buying it in large quantities in supermarkets – it is relatively expensive. There are some water delivery services that are a good option for home deliveries. Another option is to buy a water purifier, which filters the tap water with 5 different filters. We have had very good experiences with this option.
Private security companies in Romania usually work on contract and provide services to protect your home or your office, with staff on site and /or security devices and equipment (cameras, alarms).
The gas provider in Bucharest is GDF Suez. If you live in a house in Bucharest, you will have to pay the gas bill separately. Romanian regulators announced the gas market will soon open to other suppliers.
