Between 1958-2000, formally ANDERSON HOT WATER HEATING and now known as ANDERSON RADIANT HEATING, has designed, installed, and successfully completed over 6,000 residential and commercial hydronic radiant panel, baseboard, and fan coil heating systems. As a third generation contracting company, our integrity, expertise, professionalism and reputation remains beyond reproach. Our motto has always been and continues to be:

"Trust Must Be Earned.
We Have Earned It.
Ask Our Customers.Ē

Incorporated by Steven B. Anderson in 1958, the company was purchased by Lawrence P. Wagner and the name was changed in 1978 to ANDERSON HOT WATER HEATING.

The company soon grew from five employees to over 30 by 1981 when contracting for the Eastside Union High School District to provide the largest solar pool heating system in the State of California. The company has continued and maintained a rock solid reputation within the hydronics industry by down-sizing and customizing our talents to better service our customers' needs. Our contracting services have been expanded to include complete project conception through providing an entire operational heating system. We have pioneered high technology leak detection for underground and in-slab leaks using Helium Spectrographic Analysis applications for the hydronic heated home. Our expertise includes solar heating design for pools, space heating, and domestic hot water systems. Our reputation for service and reliability has no equal in the hydronics field. In 2000, the name of the company was changed to ANDERSON RADIANT HEATING and all responsibilities for directing company operation were assumed by Glen M. Wagner.

The company is owned and operated by Glen M. Wagner with the assistance of his father, Lawrence Wagner. Glenís background in hydronics began at the age of 17 while servicing systems with his father throughout the Silicon Valley. He obtained his Own C-4 (Hot Water Heating and Boiler) State Contractors License in April 1994. Constantly applauded by county inspectors, professionals, and clients alike, he has installed over 1,200 boiler and radiant panel systems with great success. With major involvement in the pioneering of helium leak detection, his individual efforts have resulted in over 5,000 radiant panel repairs and the restoration of these older systems to a new operating condition when they were otherwise determined to be non-repairable. He shares a collective family experience of over 60 years in the hydronics field, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. As senior engineer for the company, Lawrence P. Wagner is responsible for project concepts, system design and engineering. His background in hydronics began when he was just 14 years old by installing radiant panel systems for summer work with his father for the Los Altos Square Condominium Project. He graduated from San Jose State University in 1970 with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Biological Science and a minor in Chemistry. As an ROTC student, he was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant and entered the United States Air Force shortly after graduation. He was quickly promoted to the rank of Captain and after being transferred to Vandenberg AFB in 1974, he became an instructor of Emergency War Order Concepts. He composed, refined, published, and implemented technical operating procedures for the Titan II, Minuteman I, II, III, and Command Data Buffer ICBM systems. As an expert in our country's nuclear missile arsenal, his training background included extensive study in mechanical, thermo-mechanical, pneumatic, electrical, hydraulic, and nuclear engineering principles and applications. He obtained a Masters Degree in Business Administration from Golden Gate University while performing his duties as an instructor. In 1977 he was honorably discharged from the USAF to enter business for himself and purchased ANDERSON HOT WATER HEATING where he has remained as the Head Contractor and Systems Engineer for 27 years. Trained in hydronic application and system design by Steven B. Anderson, he has promoted, refined, and improved hydronic installations for both residential and commercial buildings.
