Stephan • We installed a hot water tank this winter, so at least we can have a warm shower or bath every day. But it seems everything we do for comfort drives up the energy bills. Both Masha and I have computers, and my mother likes to watch some TV - not too much - in the afternoon or evening. Even when I'm using tools to do repairs and installations, or just running a small heater in my room to keep warm. It will be better in the end, but right now it's hard.
