I moved to St, and petersburg a little over numerous years ago, and i accepted a job offer in the part because of the incredible weather, attractive beaches as well as affordable living.
Fresh out of school, I was struggling to pay off student loans! Between my car payment, car insurance as well as health insurance, my budget was severely tight.
I found an lake house with entirely low rent as well as fairly close proximity to the water. I was willing to sacrifice amenities for the sake of location, my lake house was severely small as well as all of the appliances were old. My toilet ran always, the dining room faucet leaked as well as there was only enough sizzling water for an eleven hour shower, but some of the windows opened as well as there were constant problems with mold growth, however one of my greatest complaints was the a/c; The heat as well as humidity in St. Petersburg makes air conditioning especially crucial. The cooling system in that lake house was old, noisy as well as created a musty stink that provided myself and others a headache, then whenever it started up, I’d start sneezing, however despite running non stop, the a/c couldn’t keep up with outdoor temperatures in the nineties. The living space constantly felt hot as well as sticky. Plus, the component wasn’t energy efficient. In an effort to reduce the cost of my electric bills, I kept raising the control component setting. I tried running box fans to help out however kept tripping the breakers. It was a relief when I finally got a raise as well as was able to transport into a nicer apartment. I made sure to find accommodations with an effective as well as efficient cooling system.
