The Schefer Family Plumbing & Heating Business
Radiant plumbing and hydronic heating have been the Schefer's passion for over 50 years. But it all really started in1945 when Brad's great grandfather founded Walter Schefer Plumbing and Heating. Brads grandfather, Mel Schefer, learned the plumbing trade working along side his father in the late 1950s and foundedMel Schefer Plumbing in 1961. His son Tom later apprenticed alongside his father until he established Tom Schefer Plumbing and Radiant Heating in 1991. Tom's wife, Laurie, managed the home and business offices. So their son, Brad, grew up with plumbing tools in his toy box. Plumbing, it seems, is in the family genes. Brad plied the family trade as Brad Schefer Plumbing based in Lake County then worked along side his Dad until 2019 when he stepped into the generation of "big shoes" and with the help of his wife Mollie runs the present Scheferradiant business serving Sonoma, Marin, Napa and Lake counties.
Brad brings a new perspective and the millenial generation's enthusiasm for technology. Mollie anchors and manages the office and, as a team, they design, build and install state-of-the-ar radiant, hydronic heating systems and commercial cooling temperature and conditioning systems for custom residences, wineries and industry in the wine country. They strive to employ the latest most modern and efficient technologies implemented through years of hands-on technical experience and professional expertise. Today, Brad, Mollie and family serve Sonoma County and the California North Bay Area as Schefer Radiant.
