The walls and ceiling of the sauna
room should have good heat insulation, especially if the room is to
be heated by means of an electric heater. The wall materials of the
sauna, such as concrete, logs, glass, tiles, brick, glass bricks,
etc., require a relatively powerful heater and quite a long time to
heat up. The larger the sauna is in terms of capacity, the greater
the heater power should be to heat up the room sufficiently well to
take a sauna bath. When approaching a heater dealer you should know
beforehand what the wall materials are in your sauna and the
capacity/inside area of the sauna. Air-conditioning in the sauna
room must be arranged in such a way that it does not cause the heat
produced by the heater to be wasted. Much research has been done on
the proper air-conditioning system for saunas, and for many years
this has been applied at the planning and implementation stages of
sauna ventilation in any new construction. The manufacturers
product brochure, available from the heater dealer, gives further
detailed instructions relating to choice of heater power

sauna stones (which may cause a fire). Sauna stone - peridot,
(Olive - basalt) should be as heavy, color be black, size should be
large, so it may absorb as much heat. stones be placed in the
furnace should be loose to ensure good air circulation, it is
recommended to use our stone.
Usually wall-mounted sauna heater (≤ 9KW) with 5C ~ 100mm size of
the sauna stone.
Floor sauna heater(> 9kw) with size 100 ~ 150mm of the sauna
10. How often they are changed by and
large depends on how much the heater is used. If it is an average
of twice a week, the stones should be changed once a year. It is a
good idea to rearrange the stones occasionally, as they tend to
crumble with use, making the area more compact and therefore
obstructing the free circulation of air. Good air circulation will
ensure that the heater works properly and the resistors too will
last a long time owing to lower temperatures at their surface.
