ACRO Radiant Floor Heating Systems Inc provides a full range of services to its clients. We specialize in serving clients on Southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands where we contract for the design and installation of the complete heating system.
A well designed WARM FLOOR heating system by ACRO RADIANT FLOOR HEATING SYSTEMS INC can deliver the ultimate in at-home comfort and energy savings from 15% to 50% over forced air systems!
What constitutes a well-designed WARM FLOOR heating system?
A heat source such as a gas, propane, oil, electric, wood boiler or a source heat pump is required. One or more of these heat sources can be combined with solar panels or wind turbines for even greater energy savings. Since in-floor heating uses a large radiation surface, any of these heating systems can operate at very low water temperatures.
Tubing is placed evenly under the floor surface to ensure a uniform temperature across the floor, keeping warmth consistent in each room.
A system to control the water temperature and the flow to each room is also required. This is the most important component when considering variables such as solar gain during the day and heat loss at night. In addition, different temperatures may be set in different rooms.
Areas served: Victoria, Sooke, Sidney, Saanich, Brentwood Bay, Lake Cowichan, Duncan, Mill Bay, Chemainus, Ladysmith, Nanaimo, Parksville, Gulf Islands.

ACRO Radiant Floor Heating Systems Inc was established by Jim Reynolds, a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan. He has over 50 years experience in radiant floor heating. He has participated in the establishment of codes and guidelines for radiant systems in both Canada and the United States.
Jim has been involved in the installation and as a consulting engineer for many systems utilizing alternate energy such as geo-thermal, solar and wind turbine throughout the Pacific Northwest and as far east as South Dakota and as far south as Arizona and California.
In recent years, Jim has been joined by his son Stuart. Stuart has completed his training through the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in Edmonton, Alberta and is a Certified Hydronic Designer by The Canadian Hydronics Council.
When you contract with Acro Radiant Floor Heating Systems Inc. to install your heating system, you can be assured that you have true professionals designing and installing your system.
Over the years, we have seen momentous changes in the materials that we use. From welded steel pipe; to copper; to EPDM rubber; to polybutylene; to crosslinked polyethylene with oxygen barrier; from manual mixing valves; and to sophisticated micro processor (computerized) control systems.
In addition to the changes in materials, we have seen a progression from the traditional energy sources of wood, coal, oil, liquefied petroleum gas, natural gas and electricity to geothermal heat pumps, air to water heat pumps and solar panels.
Today, we have available to us, all of the technology and equipment from anywhere in the world. It is up to us to apply this technology to design and install systems that will deliver the most healthy and comfortable indoor environment. With the lowest possible energy cost, while at the same time having the least possible effect on the global environment.
