The sauna heater is the heart of the traditional Finnish steam sauna, providing comforting heat and ample steam when pouring water on the sauna rocks. Most sauna heaters can be used dry or for traditional steam sauna, just pour a ladle of water every 3 to 5 minutes to produce steam and bring the humidity level to your preference. Eucalyptus sauna oils can be diluted in a sauna water bucket for a refreshing vaporized scent. Some of the best benefits of sauna use are: flush toxins through sweating, increased blood flow to skin surface for healthy skin and circulation, and a soothing feeling of well-being afterward with more restful sleep. Be sure to match the correct sized sauna heater for your application, by knowing the cubic foot total of your sauna room (width x depth x height in feet). Shopping by the cubic foot total works for most sauna heater applications, except for outdoor saunas in cold climates, you may want to upgrade to the next Kilowatt size up heater to compensate for the lower starting temperature.
