Almost every single resident will have their own thermostat and their own HVAC system, which means there are hundreds of thousands of systems around here
Florida used to be considered part of the South, and it still is… but only by Northern folks. It is the strangest thing, because apparently the South is not dictated by geography but by attitude. To other southerners, in George and Alabama for example, they don’t consider Florida to be part of them. The South stops at the southern Georgia border, apparently, because for the last few decades Florida has been taken over by Snowbirds and other northerners. Tampa, FL for example is composed of tens of thousands of retirees who moved down from up north. I understand their point, because I also moved down to Tampa from up north, only I was chasing a job, not a peaceful retirement. As a heating and cooling tech, I could pretty much find work anywhere, but I had heard the job market was great in Tampa. Think about how many dozens of retirement communities there are in the Tampa Bay area, and how many tens of thousands of people live in them. Almost every single resident will have their own thermostat and their own HVAC system, which means there are hundreds of thousands of systems around here. This means a steady supply of work for any Tampa area HVAC technician who wants to hustle. My business has grown by leaps and bounds in a very short time, and before you know it I will be planning my own retirement… right here in Tampa! With the beaches, the fresh Gulf of Mexico seafood, and the sports teams, Tampa Bay is a great place to retire.
