There are many different kinds of heaters to choose from available at saunas.com; knowing how each one works and researching the types will help you pick which one is right for you.
Here is an overview of the various types of sauna heaters:
• Traditional – The traditional sauna heater is comprised of a stove covered with hot rocks. Manufactures such as Polar Sauna, Avalon, and Catalina make various types of traditional sauna heaters that use steam to heat the sauna. Traditional sauna heaters run on electricity, wood, or gas.
• Infrared – Infrared heaters are the most modern sauna development. Infrared heaters heat the sauna room through radiant heat, similar to the sun's, but without the UV rays. If you are interested in an infrared heater, consider an infrared sauna room by SaunaGen, Polar Sauna, or the Caatu Series by Sauna Warehouse, or look at a combination IR/Steam sauna from Polar Sauna or the Caatu Series by Sauna Warehouse.
