Pepita Collins has created a unique home on Axmouth’s lively harbour front. She selected Nu-Heat's underfloor heating system to provide an alternative radiators. Once a fisherman's cottage, it is now a warm, welcoming and individual home bursting with character inspired by its artistic and passionate owner.
Pepita's love affair with the run-down cottage began a number of years ago when the property and its adjoining residence came onto the market. Both cottages were in need of complete renovation and Pepita bought both – one as a project for her daughter and the other for herself. Pepita said "I didn't want to hang radiators onto the walls as I felt it would detract from what I was trying to achieve, which was making the most of the natural features, so opted for Nu‑Heat's underfloor heating."
Pepita was delighted with the results, commenting "Having never previously lived with underfloor heating I was taking a bit of a gamble as to whether I would like it, but it's marvellous. As well as creating more space, it's also kept the house at a nice even temperature which I and my family just love. There are no more cold spots and I couldn't believe how neat it looked when it was being laid. The installers even said they preferred fitting underfloor heating as they feel it is superior to radiators."
