Keep Your Pool Comfortable with a Heater from Novotny

Everyone likes to take a nice cold plunge into a swimming pool on a hot day, but you also probably don’t want pool water that’s so frigid that it’s uncomfortable or gets you sick. That’s why it’s important that your swimming pool is equipped with a heater that can handle the amount of water that your pool contains. Novotny stocks top-quality pool heaters from Raypak, a Rheem company. We also install, service, and warranty all our heaters, so you can minimize the amount you’ll have to worry about it after buying.

Raypak Millivolt

This design has a constant pilot, 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. The pilot operates at about 500 BTUH.

The advantage of using millivolt ignition is that no electrical power needs to be supplied to the heater. The heater can therefore be located in areas where no electrical service is readily at hand, or where it would be prohibitively expensive to provide electric service.

Novotny is proud to feature the millivolt ignition from Raypal. This is our best selling residential swimming pool heater system with all of the preferred features:

  • High-wind resistance
  • Unitherm governor prevents condensation
  • Corrosion-resistant headers
  • Completely field serviceable
  • PVC plumbing directly to the heater
  • Non-stop performance
  • Small footprint

Raypak Above Ground Pool and Spa Heaters

Novotny stocks other Raypak heaters that are perfectly suited for above-ground pools and spas—namely, the Model 106 and Model 156 heaters.

Model 156

The Raypak 156A is ideal for mid-sized above ground pools, in-ground pools, and spas. This heater has up to 50% more BTU's than the competition, which means it heats up quicker, allowing you to get into the pool and start enjoying yourself sooner than with similar models from other brands.

Features:

  • Digital Control
  • Microprocessor-Controlled Thermostat
  • Self-Diagnostic
  • Remote-Compatible
  • Removable Power Cord
  • Stainless Steel Burners
  • Smooth Light Off
  • Pilot Ignition
  • Copper Fin Tube
  • Automatic Bypass
  • Rust-Free Waterways

Model 106

The Raypak 106A is perfect for above-ground pools and spas. This may be Raypak’s smallest pool and spa heater, but it’s built with the same high-quality components and engineering as the rest of their products, so it’s a reliable choice for heating a smaller pool or spa.

Features:

  • Analog Control
  • Removable Power Cord
  • Stainless Steel Burners
  • Smooth Light Off
  • Pilot Ignition
  • Copper Fin Tube
  • Automatic Bypass
  • Rust-Free Waterways

Raypak Digital Gas Heater

Novotny is proud to feature the digital gas heater from Raypak. This is one of the best heaters on the market, with many useful features, some of which include:

  • Microprocessor-Controlled Thermostat: The Raypak Digital gas heater features a microprocessor-based control center, so you can set precisely the temperature you want just by pressing the up or down temperature control buttons.
  • Self-Diagnostic: On-board diagnostic controls let the user and the service professional know what is going on with the heater at all times. In the event that you ever have a problem with the heater, the digital display will indicate the source.
  • Remote-Compatible: Compatible with most pool control and remote systems on the market. Any two-wire or three-wire remote can be connected to the heater and integrated into the pool control system.
  • Electronic Ignition: Raypak Digital heaters come standard with intermittent spark ignition pilot safety controls. What this means is that the pilot only comes on when there is a call for heat. This provides an energy-efficient way to control your heater's gas usage by eliminating the need for a continuous pilot.

Other features like the digital gas heater’s wind-resistant design, ceramic fiber combustion chamber, condensation-free operation, polymer headers, copper fin tubes, and stainless steel tube sheets prevent drafting problems, combat corrosion, ensure efficient heat transfer, and overall keep the heater running at top performance.

So, when you’re looking to ensure that your pool water is comfortable, try out a Raypak heater, designed by Rheem and provided by Novotny!
