- The 5,800-square-foot, cape-style house, located in the Seawatch at Sunset Harbor community in Southport, N.C., is the 12th idea home for Coastal Living magazine.
- The home includes Uponor’s radiant heating systems in the outside kitchen and eating area, master bedroom and bath (including inside the shower and on the shower bench), as well as the kitchen and a top-floor gathering place.
- The home also boasts an Uponor PEX plumbing system which includes the D’MAND Hot Water Delivery System for immediate hot water delivery, allowing minimal water wasted down the drain while the homeowner waits for the water to warm up.
Coastal Living is a national magazine that celebrates life along the coast and is the source of inspiration and information for people who live or dream of living a coastal lifestyle. Seawatch at Sunset Harbor, the magazine’s 12th Idea Home, is built with environmental consciousness and a commitment to the use of sustainable products.
For consistent room temperatures in the main living areas of the home, including the master bedroom, bathroom and kitchen, Uponor provided its radiant floor heating system to disperse the heat evenly and where it is most needed — at floor level. In addition, an impressive outdoor kitchen welcomes guests to a great dining experience, and the radiant system circulating below the stone flooring keeps them cozy warm on cool coastal evenings.
The Uponor plumbing system offers homeowners a quiet, durable and cost-effective water distribution system. The proven combination of Uponor AquaPEX® tubing and ProPEX® Multi-port Tees provides the most efficient plumbing installation requiring fewer feet of tubing, fittings and connections than a traditional system.
“Uponor provided highly-qualified assistance for both the plumbing and radiant heat installations,” says Jack Potter, owner of PJ&A Plumbing Contractors, the installing contractor for the Seawatch home. “This was our first attempt with Uponor’s line of products, and I was highly impressed with the quality of the products, the short learning curve for installation and the support from field representatives. We will definitely continue to use Uponor.”
