How to Choose a RayPak Heater

RayPak gas-fired heaters come in different configuration designed to meet specific heating application:

Digital Electronic: Uses electricity to generate ignition, heater is wired to a 110V or 220 V electrical source.
Or
Millivolt Ignition: Uses a continuous pilot light to generate ignition, does not require electrical source

 

Do I need Digital Electronic Ignition?
Most Residential and almost all commercial users use Digital Electronic version of RayPak heater because of ease of maintenance, simplicity of control operations and environmental regulation

The RayPak Digital Electronic Ignition heaters are the most commonly installed heaters for both residential and commercial customers. They easy to operate with accurate temperature setting digital controls, can be remotely controlled using pool automation systems. only generates a pilot when there is a call for heat. Keeping the sensors active requires electrical power, so power must be wired to the unit. They are energy efficient, you only use fuel when there is a call for heat. Electrical source makes sure ignition source can not be extinguished.

 

Do I need a Millivolt Heater?
If you do not have an electrical source to wire to the heater and do not need to control the heater remotely you can used Millivolt pool heater. You can not use Millivolt heaters if you're in Low NOx areas.

Millivolt pool heaters are designed to be stand-alone with no electrical wiring required and has a constant burning pilot light, sitting just below a small generator. This generator uses the heat of the pilot flame to generate small amounts of power (milli-voltage, or thousands of a volt). This trickle of power is then used to operate the rest of the system.
