How do you select a sauna heater?

Selecting a Steam Sauna Heater

There are many different kinds of steam sauna stoves available for your home sauna; one manufacturer can offer several different models. Choosing the right steam stove can seem a little daunting.

Ask yourself these questions to determine which steam stove is right for you.
• Where do you want your heater to mount? Most steam heaters either mount on the floor (floor mount) or on the wall (flatwall or corner mount). If you have a preference as to where your heater mounts, make sure the heater you select is compatible with the location
• Do you want a sauna humidifier? Some steam sauna heaters come installed with a sauna humidifier, which is a column you can pour water in to generate heat for 20-30 minutes at a time. If this is important to you, select a heater with a humidifier installed
• How much do you want to spend on electric bills? Some steam sauna heaters are considered extremely energy-efficient, and some are less so. You may pay more upfront for a heater that claims to be energy-efficient, but in the long run may pay less on electric bills
• Do you care what it looks like? Some sauna heaters have a “sleeker” design than others, but will probably cost more
• What kind of warranty does it have? Some sauna heaters have limited warranties with the option to purchase an extended warranty; is this important to you?
