If they're willing to train you on the commercial side I would say it's worth trying and gaining that knowledge.

I'm no expert, but rather than dealing with residents, etc ..
I'd rather deal with business owners / managers ...
They may have more money
They may be in more of a hurry ($$$) to
"fix the fridge, my meat will spoil"
"fix the air conditioning system, my customers are getting angry"

I do about 80% residential ........ 15% commercial/restaurants......and 5% coin-op laundromats..........The comm/rest. they do not complain about the bill.............They want it fixed, now..... Reg is correct on a few items......Frozen steaks and sea food is expensive to throw out if spoiled............An oven is an oven and refrigeration is refrigeration...........Just bigger......Most of it is plain simple stuff...................................But, I hate having to work around the deep fryers/ ovens during business hours......

I am a commercial service tech by employment and do residential on my own time. I got started in the industry as residential with GE then moved to a commercial only company. I love the money commercial pays and it is a good fit for me. However, residential is much easier in my opinion. Commercial pays better because the repairs are so much more expensive. People repair $20K dollar ovens and $400K dishwasher, they don't blink at a $1K repair. I average 122 completed calls per month with an average of $44K billed. Residential..... well I rarely right a $1k bill without the customer gasping for air.
