Sauna heaters FAQs
What is the best heat source for a sauna?
Well, that depends on the type of sauna you choose. It will also depend on your personal preferences, your budget, and the placement of your sauna.
The wood-burning heater takes some real effort. However, they distribute the heat uniformly and are most suitable for a traditional sauna experience.
The warmth of the fire and the smoke makes it a uniquely conventional sauna experience.
Gas heaters are sensitive to changes in heat but heat up quite fast.
They are also affordable when it comes to the consumption of gas so they can be used regularly.
If you are someone who wants to jump into the sauna for deep sweat then having a gas sauna heater is a reasonable decision. However, you need to be mindful when it comes to safety considerations while using a gas sauna heater.
Electric heaters are modern, programmable, and widely available.
However, they take a little longer to pre-heat and the cost is higher than a gas heater. Some electric heaters include a solid rock tray to produce steam, which allows you to select between a regular sauna or a steam sauna.

How much does a sauna heater cost?

Also, when finding sauna heaters for sale it is easy to forget about the cost of operating your sauna every day using the sauna heater.
Although the actual costs of running a sauna will vary depending on the sauna and its usage, you can get an idea of the overall costs.
A sauna heater's electricity consumption is expressed in kilowatts per hour. The average price of electricity in the USA for a kilowatt-hour is 12 cents.
Simply multiply the number of kilowatts used per hour by how long the sauna is being used.
This will give you an estimate of the cost of the session. A simple rule is to multiply the kW (of the heater) with 0.75 (the percentage that heater consumes electricity) multiplied again by 0.12, the average price of electricity in the USA.
Here is an example of a typical sauna session:
The total cost of operation = a * b * d
where a is the kW (of the heater)
where b is 0.75
where d is 0.12
Pro tip: If you get a gas sauna heater there will be no need for the replacement of costly elements regularly relative to electric heaters and it is quicker to heat up.
