Oakland Hydronic Radiant Heating Services
Reliable Heating Repair & Installation Services
When it comes to heating your home, you have many options. Not all options heat in the same manner and different types of heaters offer various benefits and drawbacks. Many homes have traditional furnaces that offer forced hot air that will dry out your home, bother your sinuses, and even cause damage to your furniture. Radiant heating offers a different approach to heating your home, and Big Blue Plumbing is thoroughly experienced with these units.
Radiant heating keeps your home warm by heating tile and wood floors from the ground up. They don’t use fans or blowers and minimize wasted energy. Our Oakland hydronic radiant heating plumbers can install, repair, and provide maintenance for your heaters so that you always remain comfortable.
The benefits of hydronic radiant heating include:
- Decreased utility bills as a result of increased efficiency
- Ease of operation
- Minimal required maintenance
- Space savings as a result of not having radiators on the walls
- Elimination of cold spots in your home
Of course, there are also some drawbacks to these units. Radiant heating requires:
- Higher installation costs
- Longer installation time
- Raising the floor height by up to ½ inch
We also have experience installing dust- and allergen-free styles of heating units.

When we install a new unit, we keep it simple. Though we are always here to assist you with all your heating needs, we want to make sure you require as little maintenance and as few repairs as possible. That’s why we built in various components that minimize the need for future repairs and maintenance.
A new heating system installation is made up of a few key areas:
- A heat source, usually a boiler or a water heater
- Mechanical components that include zone controls, pumps, and heat exchangers
- Source of the heat distribution, such as radiators, in-floor radiant tubing, air handler, retrofit staple-up, and fan convectors
Repair or Replace?
Many buildings in the Bay Area are quite old and have aging systems currently installed. Though we always try to offer the most cost-efficient option, sometimes continually repairing an older unit will be more expensive than replacing that dinosaur with a modern unit. There are many money-saving benefits of updating your ancient unit to a modern one that features advanced technology. In addition to the monetary savings, you’ll also find your home considerably more comfortable.
