When I was considering a transfer to Florida, I researched all of the major cities with close proximity to water. The town of St. Petersburg, Florida is located on the Pinellas peninsula, then it’s located between Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico and surrounded by 244 miles of shorelineâ€¦ Connected to mainland Florida to the north, the town is known for its gorgeous beaches. The section provides a absolutely fantastic place to live! Along with boating, fishing and abundance of watersports, there’s fantastic hockeying, top-rated diners and lots of nightlife! Fort De Soto Park is really appealing and the Salvador Dali Museum is world-renowned, however because of the picturesque scenery and amazing weather, I was surprised to learn that the cost of housing in St. Petersburg is actually lower than the US national average. It’s less valuable to live in St. Petersburg than Tampa. I was able to afford a house in a very nice, especially safe neighborhood. I got lucky and found a property with several acres of land. The house was within our price range because it required quite a few repairs. There was some water damage due to a leaking roof and all of the appliances were substituted. Replacing the cooling program was a fairly major expense. I chose to spend more on a better quality air conditioning with a higher SEER. I hoped to pay for superior comfort with lower energy bills. The program includes adaptable-speed technology that allows it to automatically adjust output to the increasing requirements of the home. By supplying the exact amount of cooling necessary, the program maintains very consistent indoor temperature. Because it runs most often at a lower speed, it experiences less wear and tear and should last longer.
