Petersburg is very close to tampa. St. Petersburg is a great place to live. It is situated right in the middle of Tampa Bay and the Gulf of mexico. I live closer to the part of old Tampa bay. I am closer to Pinellas Park than I am to St. Petersburg, but I spend a lot of my time in the city. I work for a company that handles residential and commercial Heating and AC repairs and installation work. We also satisfy a variety of other problems such as mechanical and electrical problems, plumbing issues, and refrigeration leaks. Monday through Friday I drive from my home all the way to St. Petersburg so I can work at the commercial heating and AC repair and installation business. I am one of the only commercial technicians working for the company that is NATE certified. Having a NATE certification is a really big deal and there are only a handful of technicians with this special accreditation. Before I moved to St. Petersburg, I worked at a different commercial heating and AC repair business. The owner of the company was very kind and nice, but it was a very small business and he could not give me any more money. I knew that there was plenty of money to be made if I could get my foot in the door at a bigger business. When I was offered the job in St. Petersburg, there was no way that I could say no. The money was right and it wasn’t a huge commute either.
